God Wants a Family

Adam was “like” God. He was as much like God as God could possibly have made him without reproducing Himself. Psalm 8 says he was a little lower than God. Why did God make Adam like Him, unlike the angels or all the rest of creation? We know the answer – He was after family. He didn’t want another trillion angels. He had all these other animals and other creatures. That’s not what He was after. All of that creation was to prepare the home for the man He was about to create in His image, in His likeness, crowned with His glory. All of this, so He could have family on planet Earth.

“Yet you made them inferior only to yourself; you crowned them with glory and honor. You appointed them rulers over everything you made; you placed them over all creation: sheep and cattle, and the wild animals too; the birds and the fish and the creatures in the seas.” (Psalm 8:5-8; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Knowing who we are as human beings, reunited with our Father, is critical for a Great Awakening. Let the revelation sink in.

  2. The Moral Outcry is working to end abortion in our nation in our lifetime. Read about their work here.

  3. Realize that ending abortion is more than a moral issue – it treats precious human beings like they have no value. Read Psalm 8:5-8 out loud and be overwhelmed with the value of a person!

  4. Cry out for a Third Great Awakening!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, you are my Father! In embracing Jesus and His work on the cross, I have been adopted into Your family! I carry Your name and Your authority. I have access to all of Your resources. I am to represent You in every dealing with others, especially when I tell them about what Jesus did to reconcile them to You. They can be adopted, too! I dedicate myself to valuing human life from the conception to the grace. I will work toward the ending of abortion! The bigger our family gets, the more we will impact our nation. Give us a Great Awakening in America, Lord! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the family of God will know who they are and work together until abortion ends in our generation in America!
