Genesis 1:27 - "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."
When God made you in His likeness, He did not make you to look like Him. He made you to function like Him. That's what likeness literally means. When God created you, He made you to operate like Him.
If you are not functioning like God, you are "malfunctioning" because God wired and designed you to function like Him. How does God function? "Without faith it is impossible to please God" - Hebrews 11:6. God functions by faith.
We were designed to operate by faith. God sees in you the potential to dominate, rule and subdue the whole earth. "Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over...all the earth..." - Genesis 1:26. Thus, if the earth in any way is dominating you, you are malfunctioning.
