Feb. 18, 2018 – DIVINE INTELLIGENCE IS IN CONTROL AND I AM VICTORIOUS IN EVERYTHING I DO THIS DAY   

DIVINE INTELLIGENCE IS IN CONTROL AND I AM VICTORIOUS IN EVERYTHING I DO THIS DAY   

Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. 

Psalm 27:14

The secret of self-mastery is a simple one. It is the clear concept that creation begins and ends within the consciousness of the individual experiencing it.  Mind is the only cause and Law is the only process.  The Law does not work with our dreams and visions, the law works with what we really are.  It brings forth into visibility our real understanding of ourselves.  We are in control of our worlds only when we are definitely watching our thought and directing it into the Law.  We are always the centers of our universe.

Feb. 17, 2018 – I STOP DREAMING OF GOOD AND START PRODUCING GOOD   

I STOP DREAMING OF GOOD AND START PRODUCING GOOD

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 

Psalm 19:7

We are the producers of the works of God.  Mind’s only conscious outlet is through man, and this means definite, specific work on our part.  Dreams and visions are of little value unless brought forth into visibility in this world. Ideas without forms through which to operate are inconceivable to those who know the Law of Mind.  Nebulous thinking produces nebulous results.  Generalizations may sound well to the ear, but not until practical application has been made do they help to lift the race of men.  God as our inner life, love, intelligence and capacity to produce is an actual God.

Feb. 16, 2018 – GOD MADE THIS WORLD AND I FIND IT GOOD TODAY 

GOD MADE THIS WORLD AND I FIND IT GOOD TODAY 

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork. 

Psalm 19:1

Our only contact with the world is through our five senses. Each of us reacts to the impressions that come to us from them in different ways.  When we make judgments of the world, and of our particular situations in the world, we are actually stating our own limited viewpoints.  We are the only thinkers in our individual worlds.  We alone decide and evaluate the impressions that come in to us.  No matter what negative reactions appeared in the mind of Jesus, he cleared them out and saw the goodness of God in his world.  Continue reading “Feb. 16, 2018 – GOD MADE THIS WORLD AND I FIND IT GOOD TODAY “

Feb. 15, 2018 – THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MINE TODAY

THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MINE TODAY

Thou wilt shew me the path of life; in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. 

Psalm 16:11

Self-pity is the indication of an egocentric mind.  This common error should be treated primarily as definitely as we would treat a disease. Actually, it is a temporary illness of the consciousness.  Its cure is to realize that the only way the joy of the Spirit can function in our world is by functioning from a point within us.  We cannot experience joy around us, until we have created it within us.  God is the joy and zest of life.  His Presence within and around us is forever calling our attention to the happiness of living the abundant life. Continue reading “Feb. 15, 2018 – THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MINE TODAY”

Feb. 14, 2018 – I ACCEPT ALL CHANGES ON MY PATHWAY AND FIND GOD IN THEM   

I ACCEPT ALL CHANGES ON MY PATHWAY AND FIND GOD IN THEM   

I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 

Psalm 16:8

The pure in heart see God.  All others see a material world filled with problems.  Thomas Troward says that the higher intelligence always controls the lower.  As we develop spiritually, we move to higher levels of intelligence and begin to control the lower ones.  When our world pushes us around, it is indicative that we are not in control of our consciousness.  We have not realized that Mind is supreme, and we are the directors in Its Law.  As we take control over our thinking and direct it toward that which is good, we are the sons of God.

Feb. 13, 2018 – THERE IS NO RESISTANCE IN ME – I LET GOD ACT   

THERE IS NO RESISTANCE IN ME – I LET GOD ACT   

Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle, who shall dwell in thy holy hill?  He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. 

Psalm 15:1,2

If the power of God is greater than the assumed power of evil, then it is up to us to prove it.  Too many people say they believe that God is omnipotent, and continue to demonstrate unhappiness, illness and lack.  The fact is that if they really believed it, they would prove it in their own experience.  One of the reasons for failure in proving our principle is an unconscious resistance to spiritual things.  Often we are unaware we have this resistance, and thus seek alibis for our lack of good.  Continue reading “Feb. 13, 2018 – THERE IS NO RESISTANCE IN ME – I LET GOD ACT   “

Feb. 12, 2018 – GOD’S ACTIVITY IN ME MAINTAINS ME IN PROSPERITY

GOD’S ACTIVITY IN ME MAINTAINS ME IN PROSPERITY

I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me. 

Psalm 13:6

The recognition that prosperity is born of God, and is the rightful experience for all who are spiritually minded, is necessary if we are to evolve according to God’s idea of man.  Too long has money been the symbol of evil. The very people who proclaim against prosperity are merely giving emphasis to their state of mind which prevents them from having it in their own lives.  We need to love the Wealth of God as well as the Wisdom of God.  His eternal abundance surrounds us at every instant, but we can partake of it only as we accept it as our own. Continue reading “Feb. 12, 2018 – GOD’S ACTIVITY IN ME MAINTAINS ME IN PROSPERITY”

Feb. 11, 2018 – I DEDICATE MY SPEECH TO THAT WHICH IS TRUE, JUST AND LOVING

I DEDICATE MY SPEECH TO THAT WHICH IS TRUE, JUST AND LOVING

The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things. 

Psalm 12:3

Honest people speak truthfully and wisely. It takes greater wisdom to know when to be silent, than when to speak.  Most of us talk far too much, and our effusiveness bears witness to our undisciplined minds.  We flatter people and while doing it know that the words are not true, but we also know the person to whom they are addressed will probably hope they are true.  True religion should produce a race of honest people who say only what they mean. Continue reading “Feb. 11, 2018 – I DEDICATE MY SPEECH TO THAT WHICH IS TRUE, JUST AND LOVING”

Feb. 10, 2018 –  NO CONFUSION CAN EXIST FOR ME, FOR I AM ESTABLISHED IN PEACE   

 NO CONFUSION CAN EXIST FOR ME, FOR I AM ESTABLISHED IN PEACE   

He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved; for I shall never be in adversity.

Psalm 10:6

We are established eternally in a peace which has never been disturbed.  When the appearance of adversity and confusion confound us, it is indicative that definite meditation is needed to restore our thought in the peace that forever abides in fullness.  God is never disturbed, hurt or aware of adversity.  The Universal mind only knows the peace, order and harmony of Itself.  Within us this same Spirit knows these things for us in our individual worlds.  As we remember this and affirm this, we are moved out of adversity into prosperity, out of error into truth.  No confusion can exist in the mind of him whose thought is stayed on God.  Our homes and business will take on this same harmony, for these are merely the extensions of our thinking, and respond to each mood of our consciousness.  We then abide in peace and work in order.

To every inharmonious and disturbing idea in my mind I say “Get thee behind me Satan,” for I refuse to be disturbed today.  I dedicate myself to twenty-four hours of peace, order and constructive thinking.  God’s Presence in my world guarantees my peace.  The adversities of material thought and situations cannot come nigh me, for God’s inner Love maintains me in divine accord with all that is good and true. Nothing can confuse me, for I know that His Mind in me is always calm, poised and sure, and this Mind is my mind now.  I use each hour to demonstrate the Peace of being.  I work in peace.  I walk in peace.  I live in peace, for God is the peace of my Soul.

Feb. 09, 2018 – I MAKE RIGHT DECISIONS FOR THE JUDGMENT OF GOD WITHIN TELLS ME WHAT TO DO AND WHEN TO DO IT

I MAKE RIGHT DECISIONS FOR THE JUDGMENT OF GOD WITHIN TELLS ME WHAT TO DO AND WHEN TO DO IT

The Lord is known by the Judgment he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.  

Psalm 9:16

People come to the doors of professional consultants with the query “What shall I do about this?”  Apparently, we have lost our own inner resources.  Yet, the Prophets of every faith have told us of the inner capacity, born of God, to set ourselves straight and to know what to do. The quandaries of the human mind are amazing in their complexities, and the wisdom of the Divine Mind is amazing in Its simplicities.  God in the midst of us knows what to do and is seeking to impel us toward right decisions.
