"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so. And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, . . .Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them" (Genesis 1:1-3, 6-, 7, 9, 14, 26-27 NIV).
Yes, Genesis was referring to YOU! God spoke you into existence! He saved man for last because He desired a perfect place and time for man to come into existence.
Just as God perfectly and divinely planned mankind collectively, He perfectly and divinely planned you!
The next time you're feeling insignificant or small or battered by the world, repeat this, inserting your name in the blank: "Then God said, 'Let us make ________ in our image and likeness.'"
