LIVING ICONS OF A LIVING CREATOR


“Christianity is a showing forth of Christ, and not a show off of self. We actually have nothing good in of ourselves to show forth or show off, apart from Christ Jesus. Man is made in God’s image; a living icon of His Creator. He reflects on the character of God.”

We display the character of God through our earthly vessels as royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, God’s own purchased. Our lights are meant to shine before men, that they may SEE our GOOD WORKS for the purpose of Gods glory in all of our activities, on this side of life.

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God  (1 Cor 10:31)

We are painting an image of a living God; who is personal, loving and excellent in His nature. We become excellent creation in all spheres of life, as we harmonize our heart with our true identity in God, through faith. I like how Oswin Crafton echoes this truth; “An aesthetic beauty of nature everywhere, is due to its constant harmony with the principles of God. A heart in harmony with God, reflects the desirable beauty in its moral behavior and character, everywhere”

Reflect on your identity in Christ, as you boldly confess these profound truths!! You will see your life transformed from low self-esteem to Christ esteem; from an abysmal performance to over the top performer, in all you do on this side of life. (whether you toss pizza in a small restaurant or manage Fortune 500 company)

  • I am a living icon of an excellent living Creator
  • I am called to show forth His excellence
  • I display His best on the pedestal, for all to see
  • I exceed expectation in all my activities
  • Inferiority is out of my reach
  • Quality is my trademark
  • Whatever I do, I do it heartily
  • I am a servant of excellence
  • My excellence rewards automatically
  • Money is not my master but rather a servant to me
  • I have a fair chance in life just like every other human
  • My excellent heart distinguished me from others
  • I make mistakes just like everyone does
  • My excellent spirit overshadows my mistakes
  • Quality is my trademark
  • A city on a hill is who I am
  • The light of the world is who I am
  • I let my light shine intentionally
  • I break traditions and step outside the lines
  • I abound in excellent speech
  • I abound in knowledge
  • I abound in wisdom
  • I abound in faith
  • I abound in zeal
  • I abound in love
  • I abound in giving
  • I am a living icon of an excellent God
  • A superior representation of His image
 Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm. (Daniel 6:3)

DEAR READER


Dear reader,
I don’t know what your pain is today
I don’t know how exactly the odds are
I just want you to know that you are in the plans of God
His thoughts towards you today is love,
Crazy love, embedded in eternal purpose
No matter how steep or crooked life road may look like
The valley may seem too dark and obscure, to navigate through
A valley of shadow of death!
A valley filled with ferocious beasts
Beasts that steals courage from your pilgrim soul
Fear no evil, for the Lord is with you

Dear reader,
Are you weary, worn out and burnt out?
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!
His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:

Dear reader,
Maybe you are struggling with an incurable disease
Debt, depression, discouragement or some dark secret,
All things shall work together for your good
There is hope, only believe
There is abundance of help for you, stretch and receive it
Don’t throw in the towel, keep on moving forward

Dear reader,
Probably nobody understands you at this moment.
You have been blackmailed, betrayed and  rejected
Rejected for something you didn’t do or did
Your self-worth and integrity has been muddied
Shame is written on the walls of your heart like graffiti on a city street
Receive forgiveness from where you messed up
Stand tall, tuck your feet on the ground, square up your shoulders
Don’t take matters into your own hands, for being treated wrongfully
The battle is the Lords; He will fight for you and restore you

Let the presence of Jesus wash over your soul, as you watch and
listen to this short but inspired music, by Hillsong (Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus)
 

Don’t be afraid. Take courage. I am here!  (Mathew 14:27 NLT)

– Thanks for holding on. Grace and peace to you!! – McDaniels Gyamfi
