IMPORTANCE IS THE ORDER OF THIS DAY
“Every moment when the individual feels himself invaded by it (Truth) is memorable. By the necessity of our constitution a certain enthusiasm attends the individual’s consciousness of that divine presence.” Emerson
Each day is the new order offering itself to man. In the Divine Plan, all yesterdays are canceled and all tomorrows are speculation. This is the day the Lord hath made, and I accept its importance. None of my affairs are under the verdict of yesterday. Health, peace and abundance are dependent only on this day. Mind negates the past and affirms the present. God’s Ideas vitalize and create new vistas of demonstration. I realize the value of this day, and refuse to allow it to be dominated by the past or by the future. My God is of the present, and His Ideas rule me at this moment.
I am invaded by Truth, and I welcome its rules in my thinking. No false reports can register their misconceptions in my mind, for God alone thinks in me and God has righteous judgment. The invasion of Truth is welcomed by me, for then I can let go of my own false sense of responsibility. I turn over the affairs of today to a Mind which knows exactly what to do. All my questions are answered by my inner Intelligence. All my fears are dissolved by my inner Love. I lift my thought to the One Mind in the calm assurance that no mistake can ever be made. God governs me now.
All things are important, for all things bear witness of the Idea which created them. I look at the details of my experience and find the Divine facing me. God looks at me through every situation, every person, and every feeling. Omnipresent Love enfolds me and Omniscience is mine, I value the inspiration that infiltrates my consciousness, for it is God bidding me to do the right and loving thing. I prosper as I let the larger Mind and the greater Intelligence dominate me. God is always a welcome guest in the home of my thinking. I bid His Ideas come and live with me. Today is the most important day I have ever lived, and I prosper in it.
