When God looked upon the waters, he said “let there be light.” He spoke words that immediately reflected upon his essence and it was so; for he is light everlasting. Not so different from when we look upon our own reflection in the water. In other words, our image is reflected back upon us without judgement, opinion or false perception. Only the reflective image of truth in which you and I exist.   

The correlation within the water (which is life itself) is vitally important to our understanding, being it sets us free from many earthly afflictions. In many of my writings I talk about the distractions of the world and for good reason. If we fail to realize on a daily basis, that we are the children of the almighty God our heavenly father, we leave ourselves open to false doctrines, corrupted ideologies and our own cluttered perceptions. Please know that we ourselves, by ourselves are a mess waiting to happen, over and over again. Adamant proof of this is our innate ability to judge, hate and conquer within the guise of opinion, gossip and fear. In this, reveals that mankind is easily persuaded into the blindness of one’s own perceived ideologies.

Which again, why it’s so vitally important to know who we are in Christ, what flows within our temple and God’s intended purpose for our lives. Yes we are as spoiled siblings, and yes we are as one, but be warn not to divide in mind, body or understanding. Why? Because we’ve proven evident within the failure of our natural thought process, we can turn away from the comfort and peace given from our heavenly father.

Please allow me to remind you, we are a children of God, his light, his word and his blessings. Within our every breath, heartbeat and choice of free will, we are a reflection of his words; which is a covenant of eternal law. And being that you, I and all of mankind have taken upon the breath of life within our temple, we are without doubt as one within the royalty of our heavenly father. In short, we are embedded with power from his spoken words. This is why it’s said we have the power of life and death within our mouths. More specifically in the KJV Bible “Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).

In conclusion, I want you to know and practice tapping into the power of God, which is already inside you. We’ve heard this said before time and time again, but in the idealistic way of affirmations, personal improvement and the law of universal attraction. Only it doesn’t seem to work for most people, because the majority of people don’t fully realize who they are or where they come from in spirit. One reasoning is distraction! Distractions lead to disconnect and disconnect leads to the separation of source. And in all sources there relies power. In ours there is the power of God, in our hearts, within our every breath and in this; our mouths. What am I saying? When you look upon the waters of life, which is your children, your neighbors and even whom you perceive to be your enemy; speak the power of life, blessings and peace between the both of you! In this, let this be your purpose as the fluidity of life, the reflective image and the echo. Do this with bold intention. Do this in Christ’s name. And for the love of your created purpose, do remember that you’re a child of the most high, and continue to speak life upon the water.
