Aug. 06, 2018 – ALL POWER IS MINE TO USE TODAY

ALL POWER IS MINE TO USE TODAY

And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and brake them before your eyes.

Deuteronomy 9:17

Power is the capacity to imitate and demonstrate an idea.  What God has done on the scale of the universal, I can do in my own world.  When the God Mind initiates an Idea, a new good appears for man.  When I initiate a holy idea and carry it through to its logical conclusion, I am fulfilling my divine destiny.  Around me is the Power of Infinite Mind forever revealing new greatness of mind, ease and possibility.  I now attune myself to the true Source of ideas, and I execute them in my experience.  I have all the power I need, for mind alone is power, and mind thinks by means of me.

Aug. 05, 2018 – I AM DIVINELY OPTIMISTIC

I AM DIVINELY OPTIMISTIC

But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.

Job 11:20

Good is even more possible than evil, for it is God, while evil is only a temporary, false appearance.  The hopeful have always managed to lift the world a bit and to bless their fellowman.  With their eyes upon good, they have walked forward on a pathway of blessings.  I now join with all who have placed God at the center of their lives and who know that Truth alone is real.  I clasp hands with the men and women who have proven the power and the presence of God. Continue reading “Aug. 05, 2018 – I AM DIVINELY OPTIMISTIC”

Aug. 04, 2018 – TODAY I MAKE MY DEMONSTRATION

TODAY I MAKE MY DEMONSTRATION

For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

Mark 4:22

There is just as much of God in this day as in any other.  There is no reason why I cannot make my demonstration now, if I am willing to discipline my thought and feeling.  All that God is present in my world now.  All the ideas I need are in my consciousness now.  My thought, being the action of Infinite Mind, is all powerful.  I now accept my spiritual responsibility to make a definite demonstration.  No more vague thinking, and no more hoping that it will happen.  Today it will happen, for God is the only presence and the only power in my life. Continue reading “Aug. 04, 2018 – TODAY I MAKE MY DEMONSTRATION”

Aug. 03, 2018 – I REFUSE TO BE DISTURBED

I REFUSE TO BE DISTURBED

Try constantly to keep the mind steady, remain in solitude, with mind and body free from desires and possessions.

The Bhagavad-Gita

The universe is always orderly, and my life in it should be one of order, harmony and peace.  This I now accept as truth.  Henceforth, no situation shall confuse me, for I will not accept confusion.  My mind, and only my mind, determines the appearance, the continuity and the end of confusion.  I know that I can think in terms of order, and that all ideas do unfold with order and ease. I am determined to live in peace this day. Continue reading “Aug. 03, 2018 – I REFUSE TO BE DISTURBED”

Aug. 02, 2018 – I AM HEALED OF WORRY

I AM HEALED OF WORRY

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just live by his faith.

Habakkuk 2:4

Faith in God, the Good, is natural to man.  Instinctively man knows that the Mind which created him works through him.  I now declare my faith in God, and I prove this faith through my actions.  My full attention is now devoted to seeing good everywhere and in all people.  I know that within me God upholds my search for Truth and guides me all the way.  I know that the Divine Plan for me is in action; and I have complete trust in God.  Only good surrounds me, and only good comes to me.  I am assured of perfect peace and complete prosperity, for I fear not. Continue reading “Aug. 02, 2018 – I AM HEALED OF WORRY”

August 01, 2018 – I AM CAUSE NOT EFFECT

I AM CAUSE NOT EFFECT

Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.

Job 13:18

God made man in His own image and likeness, and I am that man now.  God is the Creator of heaven and earth, so I am the creator of my own heaven and my own earth.  I stand in the midst of my own consciousness and assume control.  No longer am I acted upon by my world.  I now am cause to my world. I act in mind, and my world reacts in matter in direct response to my demand.  I am cause, not effect.  I am Spirit releasing Itself into form under freedom.  With my new sense of spiritual responsibility, I create in my experience blessings for myself and good for my fellowman. Continue reading “August 01, 2018 – I AM CAUSE NOT EFFECT”

July 31, 2018 – TODAY I WAIT UPON THE LORD WITHIN ME

TODAY I WAIT UPON THE LORD WITHIN ME

The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.  Psalm 145:15

Knowing that the Divine Spirit is everywhere, and realizing that everyone who asks receives, today I ask of my spiritual Self that It shall come forth afresh; that It shall direct every decision with intelligence and that It shall make perfect my way before me. Continue reading “July 31, 2018 – TODAY I WAIT UPON THE LORD WITHIN ME”

July 30, 2018 – I HAVE JOY

I HAVE JOY

Sorrow is turned into joy before Him … Thou hast put gladness in my heart … Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; Thou hast put off my sack cloth, and girded me with gladness.

Job 41:22; Psalms 4:7; 30:11

We cannot conceive of the Spirit as sad or depressed.  There is ever a song at the center of everything.  This song is reflected in all nature, turning “mourning into dancing.”  To put off my sackcloth means turning to a complete reliance on the Divine.  To be girded with gladness means to cover ourselves with the threefold nature of good.  This is a symbol of Divine protection.  Turning the mind to God and recognizing the omnipresence of Love, causes us to rejoice, as we recognize that in Him (pure Spirit) we live, move and have our being.

I know that happiness is God’s will for me and for everyone.  I also know that I cannot gain happiness without giving it; therefore I do not expect to be happy unless I make others glad.  I radiate happiness to everyone.  There is a sense of joy at the center of my being which everyone will feel.  There is no insecurity in this happiness, no sense of impoverishment or fear, no feeling of doubt.

Today I turn from everything that depresses, and sing a song of praise, of gratitude and of joy.  I am going forth to meet joy, singing the song of the triumph of Spirit over all apparent negation.

July 29, 2018 – I HAVE HEALTH

I HAVE HEALTH

The Lord will take away from thee all sickness … I am the Lord that healeth thee.  Deuteronomy 7:15; Exodus 15:26

Health is a state of wholeness in mind and in body.  The body is the servant of the mind, and the mind is the offspring of pure Spirit.  Thus the Bible tells us that we are spirit, soul (or mind) and body.  These three really are one, and are supposed to work in perfect unison with each other.  They do this when the mind lifts its countenance to the Spirit, permitting Its flow of harmony, unity and beauty a clear passageway.  The body will always reflect this inner poise. Continue reading “July 29, 2018 – I HAVE HEALTH”

July 28, 2018 – I GIVE THANKS

I GIVE THANKS

O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.

Isaiah 25:1

Praise and thanksgiving are salutary.  They not only lighten the consciousness, lifting it out of sadness and depression; they elevate consciousness to a point of acceptance.  Praise and thanksgiving are really attitudes of recognition.. They are affirmations of the Divine Presence, the Divine abundance and the Divine givingness.  It is only when we live affirmatively that we are happy.  It is only when we recognize that the universe is built on affirmation that we can become happy.
