God made man in His own image and likeness and since God is Spirit, that means God’s man is a Spirit-man, not a matter-mortal. Be sure to identify yourself accordingly!
When you get up in the morning and look in the mirror, are you aware of the Spirit-man of God’s creating? Do you see God’s likeness, radiating intelligence, beauty, order, joy, gratitude and health?
If you look in the glass to see your identity, you likely are not beholding God’s image. You’re probably beholding something lesser, like a mortal who needs to lose weight, shows sign of age, or is less than ideal in some physical way. But reject that image! That’s not you. You are so much more.
You can’t be found in matter. You are not a temporal physical being. You are an ageless, healthy, fit immortal made in the divine likeness.
You find your true self in Spirit, never in physicality. You are a Spirit-man, a Spirit-woman, that is fully endowed with all of God’s perfection.
Wake to your true self today! Settle for nothing less. Be content with only the best. And the cool part is, that as you identify with the Spirit-creation, your human experience comes into line with it. Improvement occurs. Healing happens of that which does not belong to you, but seemed like it did when you were believing in something less than the perfect ideal.
