Welcome as we shall be discussing one of the success secrets that has eluded some many either because of carelessness or ignorance.- The Power of Self Discovery.
“Then God said let us make man in Our own image, according to Our likeness, let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:26-27
From the above scripture you will discover that of all the creatures of God, man is special. He was created in the image and likeness of God. Therefore man carries in him a spark of the divine, a share in the nature of God. As one created in the image of God, he is to exercise dominion and authority.
‘In the image of God’ means that man is a replica of God he is a direct look-alike of God. There is an impartation of God upon man. It means that God made man to take after Him. He wants man to reign like Himself that is why He gave him dominion over all His creation.
‘After Our likeness’ means resembling God, taking after God. Man is a resemblance of God without limitation because God did not put any form of limitation when He made that comment for the creation of man.
It therefore means that man has capacity to do and achieve everything he wants to do knowing that he is an offshoot of the Creator of the whole universe. Therefore there is nothing that will be impossible for man to do.
Let us look at God’s position and comment on man on the following scripture. “And The Lord said indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; Now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them”– Genesis 11:6
From the forgoing scripture God Himself knowing the level of His impartation in man testifies that man can do whatever thing he imagines to do and nothing can stop him. He expresses the capacity and ability of man to do anything at all which he desires. This is because man carries in him the breath of God (Gen 2:7), which is the creative power of God, the same power of creation that brought into being the beautiful creatures of the earth, and things therein from the formless void and dark deep of the earth.
Every human being is wired and pre-programmed for dominion, authority and greatness. There is therefore no reason for anyone to live a life of mediocrity. The reason why many people are in the state in which they are is because they have not been able to discover who they truly are and the stuff they are made of. Consequently they continue to live a low life of pain and misery.
The starting point for the change you want in your life is discovering yourself. The day you discover who you are, your life will turn around for good. Self discovery will propel you to take so many radical decisions that will catapult you to your destiny.
