You do not have to strive to be more God Like. You can never be more of something than you already are. If you are male or female you can never be more of your gender. You already are exactly what you are. There is only to become more aware of what you are, there is nothing more you can be. You are created as God Likeness. You are God in manifest human form. You are Spirit having a human experience for the explicit purpose of living in this experience and learning how to use your POWER to live more abundantly. This is your birthright and your inheritance, which you can only live as you begin to unfold into the full awareness of who you are as the Divine living an experience as YOU.
Each and every experience that you grow through is designed to peel back layers of carnal understanding to allow you to become more and more aware of your Spirit nature. As you become more aware of your Spirit nature, you grow deeper in the realization of your POWER. As you grow deeper into the realization of your POWER you begin to understand that you have GREATness within you and that it has been there since birth.
What you grow through is not designed to defeat you but to complete you. It does not matter what you experience or how bad it may get, you can never be less than what you are. You were created in the image and likeness of God. You are growing into the full awareness of what you are. You are the Likeness of God. You are God-Like. You are Spirit having a human experience. You can never be less than Spirit. You are simply learning to be complete in your own skin as you grow into the awareness of your own POWER.
Do not get so caught up on the idea of being more God Like, or more Spiritual, or more of any of the other ideologies of what being a Spirit filled person is from a worldly concept. Tradition, culture and society have taught us that we can only be Spiritual when we are practicing a certain dogma, religion or sect. This is simply not true. You are always Spiritual. You are always God-Like, and you simply continue to grow in the awareness of this truth as the trials and challenges present you with obstacles that are designed to fine tune you in the proper use of your Spiritual POWER to manifest all you desire in your experience.
You are God-Like in every moment. You can never be anything less. Remember, you are created in the image and likeness of the Divine. So how can you be less than the likeness of God or God-Like when you are created in the image and likeness of God?
Develop a thick skin to be able to stand in the silence and truth of your own mind to allow Spirit to unveil to you the deeper truths of who you are. You can never be less than God-Like, when God lives within you.
Your situation, circumstance and lack of this or that has no bearing on who you are. You are the very likeness of God. You are God-Like. With this understanding you are equipped to step into your POWER to change your L.I.F.E. to live in the fullness of the promise. You are here to live L.I.F.E. and to live it more abundantly, and you do this as you continue to grow in deeper realization of the truth of your own BEING as Spirit here living a human experience as YOU.
