Let thy spirit run free!
In the book, ‘The E-Myth Revisited’, the author recounts a fictitious account with a business owner named Sarah, and the importance of developing systems to produce excellence in her world, without her having to do all of it herself. In the dialogue he accidently stumbles upon a spiritual law, the law of creating your world, with your faith-filled words!
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
In dreaming of what her business could be, Sarah decided to unlock her spirit, and create a slogan for her business. As she thought on it I quote:
“There will be no stuffing of the spirit here, my business will say. Maybe I should put it up above the door to remind everyone who comes in what our purpose is. She grinned. “Or maybe better yet, ‘Let thy spirit run free!’ Yes, that’s better, It even feels better” She laughed out loud at the joy of it!
As she continued, it became so clear to me, what a miraculous gift speaking can be.
I saw that Sarah wasn’t so much talking to me, but to herself, discovering as she spoke the miracles that lived within her, within her experience, within her relationship with her aunt, within her extraordinary imagination. Discovering truths she never she knew. Discovering all the wealth that was waiting there inside of her to be unearthed, to be explored, to be treasured as the words came tumbling forth’
As though the words, once freed by the speaking of them, combined with the air to become something else again: A vision, Understanding, Expansion.
Do you see the principal?
God, placed a dream within her, that she had not yet articulated yet. She believed in her heart the dream, but had nev er yet spoken it into existence. When she began to speak, miracles began to happen! God, the Creator, and author of all creativity, breathed upon her dream, just as he breathed upon His own dream way back in the days of creation, when He would speak, and His breath, the person of the Holy Spirit, would create and bring into existence, what He spoke, and it was good!
What is your dream?
We all have one, for we are created in the image and likeness of God.
It needs to be spoken, articulated, and if it is worthwhile, written down, and quantified into some sort of action plan.
Don’t die, taking to the grave your dream unspoken, unrealized, unfulfilled.
Speak it! If only to a close friend, or into your microphone on your computer, speak it.
Like Sarah, the princess of God, miracles will unlock from deep inside of you, because when you received Jesus into your heart, your heart has become the fertile soil of His beauty, His dreams, His creativity – your lips become His voice in this generation, and your world, your work, becomes an expression of His creativity and love in the earth.
Speak the dream!
‘Father, I come before you, and I see some of these deep, beautiful things on the inside of me, are Your things, that like Mary, I have pondered in my heart for years. Flow through me Holy Spirit, with Your words erupting from the depths of my heart, writing your eternal dreams, on the canvas of time, my life the beautiful expression of Jesus, alive in my generation. Amen’
