To Be Like God

“Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.” (Ezek 28:17)

Perfect in beauty. Satan was beautiful, break taking but he craved more. He wanted to be like God.

"For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God…” (Gen 3:5)

Adam and Eve had it all. Perfection. Beauty. Love. But Eve, too, wanted to be like God.

Somewhere in our hearts, we truly believe this to be achievable:
We want to be like God—
Because each try to live life outside the will of our Father.

Searching for the never ending hunger of the beauty of our minds, filling the insatiable thirst of our prideful souls.

In which we manage life, oh, in the small things and the mundane things or maybe even the situations that we believe God to be, let’s say, “Not handling events to our desires” or “not handling them on our time schedule.”

Do we find ourselves handpicking which situations God can manage our life?

Where does that authority come from?

Is this our desire to be like God?

Is this our prideful (self full of pride, I call it) desires?

When we are full of ourselves, there is no room for God.

Before the fall, we were perfect in beauty, love and we were one with Him.

I choose Him.

10 little hearts from you...:

Well said, Connie...my heart agrees!

I was watching the video I posted about quiet times and the song "There's a light at the end of this tunnel." I never could get it to play before our weekend, so now that I've watched it, I noticed a picture of a little boy and dog praying (on your old blog, too). I always thought that was your son....am I right?

Just curious! I thought, how cool that someone used your photo in this Third Day video.

Have a great week, Connie!

I choose him. And...I stomp on my pride. Ouch. But, he's worth the wounded pride. Every. Time. :)xxxooogretchen

Connie, great post but I think the one comment: When we are full of ourselves, there is no room for God.
This I believe is the main thing that most people have the most problems with and YOU see this in Christian people as well as in NON-Christians...unfortunately!!

Blessings, Sandy

Good thought provoking post. No matter how many times I think I have out grown my wandering feet--God shows me I still have a waaaaaaay to go before I should even think of sitting back on my laurels.
How He must sit on the throne and shake His head at my striving.
But one day--perfection will come and we will be perfect as He is perfect.
Bring it on!

What a refreshing reminder!

Thanks for helping me remember what I need to be about.
