Pain from bee stings silenced

I was in the field behind our house digging out invasive vegetation. Suddenly I started feeling stings all over my body. I had dug into a bees nest. Walking back to the house, while swatting the bees and feeling the stinging increase, I felt a spiritual conviction that I had gained the previous day.

At that time, the thought had suddenly come to me, “You can never be taken out of the statement of your being.” It intrigued me with its boldness, so I continued to listen. The next thought that came was the statement about man (which certainly includes not just me but everyone) in Genesis in the Bible: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” (1:26). 

Recognizing that the original thought and the clarifying answer that came as I listened were angel messages from God, Soul, I let God reveal to my spiritual sense what that statement from Genesis meant. This time there was no long reasoning or quotable inspiration. I just felt as though I were gently visiting with God, listening to Him until I felt certain that I am always included in the truth of the statement that my real, spiritual nature as God’s likeness is inseparable from Him.
