I AM HAPPY IN THE HARMONY OF GOD
Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit… And there are diversities of operation, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
I Corinthians 12: 4, 6
We do not all have the same gifts because no two people are ever alike. Nature never reproduces anything identically. And there are diversities of operations. We are all engaged in different types and sorts of activities which express the unique individualization which each one of us is. But it is the same God working in all of us. Continue reading “Mar. 23, 2018 – I AM HAPPY IN THE HARMONY OF GOD “
I PARTAKE OF THE NATURE OF GOD
The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
No one can doubt that God is perfect. But Jesus said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” And he had already located heaven within. He also said, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven,” by which he meant that when we do the will of God, earth will be like heaven, that is, the without will be like the within, for the two really are one. Therefore our claim, our affirmation, our prayer and our acceptance, our communion with the Infinite, should always be based on the realization that God is in and through His creation as well as around and about it. Continue reading “Mar. 22, 2018 – I PARTAKE OF THE NATURE OF GOD”
I RELAX IN THE PEACE OF GOD
And the peace of god, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
We often wonder if peace really exists anywhere. In a world distraught with so much confusion and chaos we deeply need an inner, abiding sense of calm and tranquility. Peace of mind really is what the world is searching after because without it we have only a sense of insecurity and loneliness. Without peace, deep and abiding, there can be no happiness nor contentment, no sense of security, no confidence. Continue reading “Mar. 21, 2018 – I RELAX IN THE PEACE OF GOD “
I HONOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD
… If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honoreth me…
If I honor myself alone, not realizing that I am one with the Divine Presence, then I shall quickly exhaust the small portion of good that I, as a human being, can at any one moment contain. But if I honor the Presence of God in me, of God around and through me, of God in and through everything, then I am indeed honoring the Presence of God, for One Spirit is over all, in all and through all, and One Presence is all. Continue reading “Mar. 20, 2018 – I HONOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD”
I AM GOVERNED BY THE LAW OF GOD
For I delight in the law of God, after the inward man:
Romans 7: 22
This scriptural passage tells us of all that we should have delight in living. All creation is a manifestation of the delight of God – God seeing Himself in form, God experiencing Himself in His own actions, and God knowing Himself in us as us. For the highest God and the innermost God is one God, and not two. But the passage also suggests that in addition to delight, the enjoyment of realizing that we are alive and awake and aware, we are also subject to the exact law that must govern everything – the Law of the Lord that is perfect. Continue reading “Mar. 19, 2018 – I AM GOVERNED BY THE LAW OF GOD “
I AM WARMED BY THE LOVE OF GOD
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God…
I John 3:1
It has been truly said that love is the loadstone of life, the treasure of earth and the highest gift of heaven. We all wish to feel that we are kept in the arms of love, protected by its shelter and warmed by its feeling. But someone might ask, “How do we really know that ‘the universe rests on the shoulders of love?’” The answer is more simple that it might appear. For instance, no one is ever harmed by love. Continue reading “Mar. 18, 2018 – I AM WARMED BY THE LOVE OF GOD “
I SEE WITH THE EYES OF GOD
…one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
The ancients said that there is an “all-seeing eye” and that if we could cause our physical eyes to see with its vision we should be looking at things as they really are. But is it not true that too often we see with a blurred vision because we are so confused mentally? The all-seeing eye of God, by its very nature, being one and only, must forever see things as they really are. This is why Jesus said to judge not according to appearances but to judge righteously. Continue reading “Mar. 17, 2018 – I SEE WITH THE EYES OF GOD”
I AM ENDOWED WITH THE PERFECTION OF GOD
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5: 48
When Jesus said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven (within you) is perfect,” he was telling us that there is a Perfection at the center of all things, which, recognized, will spring into being. We must learn to identify ourselves with this Perfection, to so accept it that it is real to us, and to so live that it may be expressed through us. Every organ, action and function of our physical body is rooted in spiritual Perfection, from which it draws its life. Continue reading “Mar. 16, 2018 – I AM ENDOWED WITH THE PERFECTION OF GOD”
I AM SUPPLIED FROM THE SUBSTANCE OF GOD
The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
We all have need of many things. We cannot believe that the Divine Spirit wishes to withhold any good from us. It is the nature of God to give, and it is our nature to receive. Back of every idea of supply, every need in our human lives, there is something which forever more gives of itself and takes the form of our experiences when we permit it to. Whether it be a house to live in, money that we have need of, or employment that furnishes the gratification of adequate self-expression – always there is the Giver flowing into these things. But the Divine has already given Its entire being to us. Continue reading “Mar. 15, 2018 – I AM SUPPLIED FROM THE SUBSTANCE OF GOD”
I ENJOY THE COMPANIONSHIP OF GOD
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.
Communion with the Spirit is one of the greatest privileges of life. By communion with God we do not mean telling the Infinite what to do or how to do it, for that is talking at God rather than communing with Him. By communion we mean silently entering into Divine harmony and beauty until we feel that harmony and beauty in our own souls, in our own minds. For instance, if one finds himself distraught and mentally upset, and he follows the simple practice of communing with peace, he will find that peace enters into him. Continue reading “Mar. 14, 2018 – I ENJOY THE COMPANIONSHIP OF GOD”
