This morning’s devotion brought me to a place of beautiful humility in recognizing God’s design in man and woman.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:27
I’ve come face-to-face with the emotional side of being female that God designed within me. My husband is the spirit and truth that I often need to speak over me when my emotions are raging like crazy. My husband sees things in a black-and-white filter and can shed truth when I’m hearing all the voices of the world.
This morning I was reminded that God made man and woman BOTH in His image. He made us to reflect who He is as we serve Him in union together. Together. Together we reflect the full image of God into this broken world crying out for unity, peace and belonging. Together as man and woman we reflect the image of God and God’s perfect love. We aren’t perfect, we are broken. We aren’t full on our own, we are fallen. Together, together covered by His grace, together bought by His blood, together He loves us and works through us.
Today I pray that you find gratitude in a fresh way for the togetherness of who He has joined you to. I pray you find a fresh joy of the Man God made to complement the woman He designed you to be. If you find yourself single today I pray you find a fresh love in the deep way that God has brought you together to His side as His bride purchased at the greatest cost.
“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:35
