The Power of Let


“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”  ~Colossians 3:16

As we read the biblical account of the history of how things came to be in Genesis 1, God repeats over and over again in the process of creation, “Let.”  “Let” is often seen as a passive word because it means to allow things to be or to come into existence. It is not as forceful like its counterpart, “make.”  As God said, “Let there be…” the universe responded to God’s words and brought into being whatever God said. God is still speaking and the universe is still responding to God’s words bringing into being whatever God says. “…My word that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:11).”

God has given us a voice to speak words and the universe is responding to what we speak in the atmosphere. There is power and authority in our voice. Therefore, just as we learned last week to be good stewards over our minds and our thoughts, it is also important that we become good stewards over our mouths and our words. “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34).” Our minds and our mouths work together to bring forth our harvest. Our thoughts and our words are in harmony to bring forth fruit.

Salvation is the awakening of the consciousness to the truth of who we are as sons and daughters of God. “The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God (Romans 8:16).” This awakening exemplified through our Wayshower, Jesus, the Christ. “If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved (Romans 10:9-10).” It is the combination of the mind/heart and the mouth that allows this awakening to manifest in our daily lives.

Salvation is knowing that God loves you and that no thought, word or action can change that truth. It is a continual process that takes place in three distinct stages: justification, sanctification and glorification (Romans 8:30-39). Salvation is an internal knowing that “I and my Father are one” and that nothing can separate me from the love of God (John 10:30).”

Let us begin and end every day, “God loves me.” Repeat these words throughout the day and let this Divine Idea cleanse your consciousness from any erroneous ideas of shame, guilt, condemnation, unworthiness or not being good enough. Let this Divine Love heal you from sickness, pain, disease, discomfort or dysfunction. Let this love empower you to release any limiting beliefs of lack, limitation, poverty or there not being enough.
