Two of the most powerful words that we can say is I AM. When we use these two simple words, I AM, we are referring to ourselves as spiritual beings. I AM refers our divine nature, our divinity, the Christ in us, the Christ consciousness, the God in us, the Holy Spirit within us, the God part of us or the spiritual aspect of who we are. Paul described it as a mystery, “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).”
I AM is always positive because it speaks of our God nature. God is good and always positive. We are made in the image and likeness of God; therefore, the I AM of our being is always positive (Genesis 1:16-28). God created the worlds through the words of his mouth (Hebrews 11:3). He said, “Let there be light and there was light (Genesis 1:5).”
As the children of God, we have that same power, authority and ability to create our world with our words (Romans 4:17). Therefore, it is imperative that we never attach the words; I AM, to anything that is not positive. We are never to associate the words, I AM, with anything that is not our highest good.
I AM is a constant state of creating. When we assign the words, I AM, to something negative, we are perpetually creating that negativity in our lives and in our affairs. When we assign the words, I AM, to something positive, we are perpetually creating positivity in our lives and in our affairs. Let us be careful how we use the words, I AM.
