Get on the "Say-Saw"

Gen 1:3-4 (Amplified Bible) “And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.  And God saw that the light was good (suitable, pleasant) {and} He approved it; and God separated the light from the darkness.” 

When I was younger, I basically spent my entire spring and summer at the park in the town that I grew up in.  It had baseball fields, basketball courts, playgrounds and lots of wide open space.  It was awesome, I loved it.  You don’t see them around too much anymore, but on the playground, we had a couple of see-saws, remember those?  One thing I found out, is that you always wanted to make sure that the people sitting at each end of the see-saw were about the same weight, or else the smaller kid would go flying!  

I like to create my own phrases out of everyday words, so I came up with the phrase “say-saw” to describe the creative power God in Genesis 1.  If you notice, the phrase “and God said” is followed by the phrase “and God saw” multiple times.  The same sequence is true for our lives.  Let me explain further… 

In Genesis 2:7, one translation says “then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath (or spirit) of life, and man became another speaking spirit like God”.  I really love that God would create man with the same power and ability to create with our words as Himself.  Our mouths are a supernatural apparatus.  In Genesis 1, when God spoke, or when He would “say”, immediately He “saw” what was spoken, in that order.  As speaking spirits like God, when we “say” what God’s word says in our lives, we “see” His word come to pass.  God’s word in our mouths has the same creative power as when the words came out of His mouth. 

If you don’t like what you “see” in your life, begin to “say” what God has to say about it.  If you want to change what you “see”, change what you “say” until the change happens.  It’s that simple.  What a gift He has given us, the power to create with our words.  Want to live life the way God meant for you to live?  Then get on the “say-saw”!
