Made in The Image of God, Our Creator (Morning)

TODAY’S FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Isaiah 43:1-5

TODAY’S RHEMA

Isaiah 43:4 Since you are precious and special in my sight, and I love you, I will hand over people in place of you, nations in place of your life.

Pieces of art may still be a complex conundrum even to this day. Some may have a hefty price and the others may not be so lucky. Let’s take a closer look at Banksy’s Girl with Balloon. It was sold at London Sotheby’s in 2018. Defiantly, Banksy installed a remote-controlled paper shredder inside Girl with Balloon’s frame. The spectators and bidders watched in horror when right after the auctioneer knocked his hammer, Banksy activated the shredder and turned £ 1,04 million pieces of art into £ 1,04 million white ribbons.

After the bidding, Banksy changed its name: Love is in the Bin. Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s senior director stated “Banksy didn’t destroy an artwork in the auction. He created one.” Later Alex Branczik quoted “First work in history ever created during a live auction”

Sound familiar? It’s because He created us, an image of His likeness and resemblance. But our past experiences may ruin our image. It doesn’t matter at all. Just like £1,04 million Girl with Balloon is still £ 1,04 million of Love is in the Bin. Your past life may have been ruined you badly but still, it never changes your worth in His eyes.
