The bible says in the book of Genesis, after God had created every other thing He said in Genesis 1:26 ,” Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.
27 So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.
So, that fact and truth is established! That we were made in the image of God!.
Now, let us see what the definition of image is.
The dictionary defines Image as follows
1. a physical likeness or representation of a person, animal, or thing, photographed, painted, sculptured , or otherwise made visible.
2. An optical counterpart or appearance of an object, as is produced by reflection from a mirror, refraction by a lens, or the passage of luminous rays through a small aperture and their reception on a surface.
3. a mental representation ; idea; conception .
4. form; appearance; semblance. etc.
But, who is God? What is His nature? what did we take from Him or suppose to take from Him as been made in His image?.
We know that God is a creator, He created the Heaven and Earth and everything that is in it, but how did He create the Heaven and Earth, what did He do before He “Said” those things to be.
Genesis 1:2, “The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.” (The amplified version).
Hovering is to hang fluttering or be suspended in the air or to keep lingering about something.
Brooding means to be preoccupied with thoughts.
So, before God ” Said” anything, His Spirit was preoccupied with deep thoughts, thoughts of good not of evil. Then He went on to say, let there be this and that.
We are made in the image and likeness of God who happens to be a creator! We should be creating and saying things to come into being, not suffering and crying!
Are you waiting on the Lord for the fruit of the womb? Start the process of creation right now. Your father is a creator! The earlier you understand this the better. Begin to think, using your creative power!. It is in every one of us. We can create whatever we want by first thinking deep thoughts .
You must form a mental picture of the baby you want , form that baby in your mind, then you keep hovering and brooding over him/her. Mind you, this is not a day’s job, you must keep the picture in your mind and keep shaping and moulding until that picture becomes so real to you that you can practically feel the baby everywhere you are. This should be done with prayers, praises, thanksgiving, sowing of seeds and good deeds in FAITH, because without faith, no one can please God.
While you are doing this in your mind’s eyes, the external works must correspond to what is going on inside of you. Get baby things around your room, if you have enough rooms, prepare one of the rooms for the baby in faith!. If you see a beautiful item outside in a supermarket or mall get it in faith for your baby. You must not carry in your heart anything negative you have been told by the doctor. He has done his job, let God do His job.
The bible also said. ……..let them have complete authority…….,. Having complete authority, includes control over our minds. This is actually where the war is. Do not let your mind wander away doing and creating things you do not want, focus on the subject matter, your Baby! Be positive no matter what the devil tries to make you do. He is a trickster, he works on the mind and tries to control you, but remember, God has created you to have complete authority.
You must understand that the trickster is always right there waiting, waiting to misdirect and confuse you into believing that this is not possible, you have to be sensitive enough to know the different voices you hear. Always turn him away by the power of the Holy Ghost, which is a higher power than he is. Do not fight satan with the energy of the flesh, as a matter of fact, you can’t. He is a spirit, fight him with a higher Spirit. Control your thoughts, live a Godly life and keep creating until that baby is born into this wonderful world. Do not forget the talking part. Always talk positively about your baby. This should be done in faith by husband and wife. However, if the other is not ready, go ahead and do it in faith. God will give you your heart desire.
