SPRING FORTH NOW
This is the story of how it all started, of Heaven and Earth when they were created. At the time God made Earth and Heaven, before any grasses or shrubs had sprouted from the ground—God hadn’t yet sent rain on Earth, nor was there anyone around to work the ground (the whole Earth was watered by underground springs)—God formed Man out of dirt from the ground and blew into his nostrils the breath of life. The Man came alive—a living soul! Then God planted a garden in Eden, in the east. He put the Man he had just made in it. God made all kinds of trees grow from the ground, trees beautiful to look at and good to eat. The Tree-of-Life was in the middle of the garden, also the Tree-of-Knowledge-of-Good-and-Evil. A river flows out of Eden to water the garden and from there divides into four rivers. The first is named Pishon; it flows through Havilah where there is gold. The gold of this land is good. The land is also known for a sweet-scented resin and the onyx stone. The second river is named Gihon; it flows through the land of Cush. The third river is named Hiddekel and flows east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates.
Genesis 2:4-14 (MSG)
As we Accumulate more of God, we receive more of His revelation which also reveals us, the who He has created us to be; fearfully and wonderfully and the crown of His glory. Understanding who you are is critically important to the impact of your witness, the evidence of God, His living visible presence in the world. Therefore, to Soar, to rise high in your life even amid life’s challenges and increase rapidly in the fulfillment of God’s promises speaks of God and HIs presence, power, and promises in life, but it also speaks to you, your anointing to live in the fullness of God. God in creation, created a space in which everything is provided for us and He chose to do that in what was and is the continent of Africa. It is most fitting that we as creatures of God, people of Africa and the African Diaspora, be loud witnesses for the Creator-God and be very proud of it, He chose us to bring life to the world, the very living visible presence of God. In the garden of Eden, God placed us and provided everything we needed also sent forth rivers to nurture and develop the rest of creation. We, as James Brown pinned, ought to cheerfully proclaim our Blackness; say it loud, I am Black and I am proud as a witness of the Creator-God, showing forth His works and mighty hand, for we are fearfully and wonderfully made and the crown of His glory. Soar in your life and do so with confidence, Accumulating more of the revelation of God and who God created you to be. God chose you, He chose me and my people; the great people of Africa, to bring life to the world and sustain it throughout all eternity and I am going to say it loud, I am Black and I am proud!
