In a flash, I saw it… a principle that had the potential to turn my life around forever!
I can create my own reality! Suddenly, I understood that I was no longer subject to the same laws as everyone else, I could create my own reality! Wow! Let me explain…
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” – John 14:6 (KJV)
Here we see Jesus making quite an audacious claim to be THE WAY, and THE TRUTH and THE LIFE, what exactly do these words even mean?
Things get really interesting when we look up that same scripture in other translations
“Jesus: I am the path, the truth, and the energy of life” – John 14:6 (The Voice edition)
Aha! A new word: ENERGY of life, that means the energy to run through life does not come by eating and drinking, it comes from something else.
The Recovery Version of that scripture is the one that resonated the most with me and the main basis of today’s #TMP.
“Jesus said to him, I am the way and the reality and the life” – John 14:6 (Recovery version)
This translation replaced the word TRUTH with REALITY. Which means that Jesus is my reality, not what the news defines as my reality, not what the economy says it is… But whatever Jesus says it is!
Cool, isn’t it? But that is not all!
From John 1:1 – 14, it gets much more interesting, John uses the Greek word logos to describe Jesus “in the beginning,” or before creation and time began. Logos means WORD, but specifically it means the spoken word or a statement. Jesus is God’s SPOKEN WORD, according to John.
Therefore, if Jesus is the WORD and we have our BIBLE which also contains the WORD of GOD, I therefore feel our task is simple! Using the WORD of God, which is contained in our BIBLE, anybody can create his own REALITY! Anyone can get the ENERGY to go through life and find the path of ultimate illumination.
Let us take a clue from our Father, the one who created ALL things.
In the beginning, He found out that the heavens and the earth that he had created had totally broken down. The bible reports that He found it FORMLESS, EMPTY and DARKNESS was over the surface of the deep.
Is this not a surprising thing, how can God create something FORMLESS, EMPTY and DARK? This shows us that some other things had happened… But what happens next is quite remarkable; God spoke!
Like you would have done, God also spoke. But He didn’t start to complain and accuse whoever wrecked the havoc, He didn’t start to cry and whine and make revenge plans – all a complete waste of His precious time. He simply declared what he wanted to see: LIGHT!
So, would you like to change your reality?
React to life the way God did, when you see things you do not like spring up around you. Do not react as if you saw it, instead declare what you want with your own mouth! Put the WORD of GOD in your mouth, boldly declare the WORD of GOD because it is the WORD of God that ought to create your own reality as a child of God.
Your reality is not defined by the things you can see or even perceive, your reality should be created by what you say with your own mouth and careful steps the declarations will then lead you to do.
With Jesus; which is the SPOKEN WORD of God in your own mouth, you can create anything you would like to see. If God could use it to create everything we can see now, I do not for one second doubt its efficacy!
You should try it! This new week, every morning make BOLD declarations from the bible, declare that you want to see LOVE, JOY. You should also call in some millions of money you know?
A fantastic exercise I now do often is to call in ideas and money everyday; ideas rule the world and I need money to build my ideas. Simple!
So, would you like to change your reality? I am sure you now know what to do.
