Psalm 104:24-26 (NKJV) 24 O Lord, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all. The earth is full of Your possessions—25 This great and wide sea, In which are innumerable teeming things, Living things both small and great. 26 There the ships sail about; There is that Leviathan Which You have made to play there.

“Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens” (Genesis 1:20 NKJV). The seas and the oceans and all other bodies of water became alive with living creatures. The earth is full of God’s creatures. Fishes in the sea, birds in the air, and the animals on land; from the smallest to the largest, God cares for each one of them with amazing care. The variety of God’s creation of living creatures is staggering. And it reflects on the glory, power, and majesty of God. By His wisdom, God has designed them all. They are God’s creatures, and He purposely uses them to illustrate His own splendor and might. Out of nothing, God created every living thing. Now, what about man? In Genesis 1:26-28, we read: “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”” If you want to know the origin of mankind, then know that God created man in His own image. As God, Elohim, is three in One; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Man is also a trinity; man is physically, mentally, and spiritually a being. In that way God created man in His own image. And also, God created man with a self-conscious. Man is one who makes his own decisions. As God is sovereign, man is his own free moral agent. This is what is unique about mankind. And this is how God created man in His own image. God did not create man to be a robot, so to speak. God did not program man to do exactly what He wants us to do. When creation was finished, God looked upon it and saw that it was good. And we have a choice, just as it is said in John 3:16 (NKJV), “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” My friend, unless you are willing to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you will not have life everlasting. All roads do not lead to God the Father in heaven. For the Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead, Elohim said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6 NKJV). God is not forcing anyone to come to Him. God created man to be self-conscious, you have to decide out of your own free will to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. And that is how much God loves you.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
