… prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
What a promise this is! As though the Divine were issuing a challenge to the human and saying, “Perhaps things are better than they appear to be. Have you ever really tried having confidence in the Spirit? Have you ever experimented with your own mind to see if you could come to a place where you really believe there is good enough to go around?” It is as though the prophet were telling us that even the Divine Bounty itself, lavish and extravagant as it must be, waits ours acceptance.

…I shall be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.
Isaiah 49: 5
If God is all the life that there is, then this life contains the only energy there is. If we are really hooked up with the eternal, everlasting and perfect Energy, then we should never become weary at all. And when we have an enthusiastic and glad outlook on life we seldom do become weary. Therefore we must convince ourselves that we are vitalized by the strength of God and we must do something to ourselves which makes it certain that this infinite Energy shall increasingly flow through us. Continue reading “Mar. 29, 2018 – I AM VITALIZED BY THE STRENGTH OF GOD”
…The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
Emerson tells us that the Ancient of Days is in the latest invention. In other words, since God is all there is, the only Presence, the only Power and the only Mind or Intelligence, when we conceive a new idea we are thinking directly from the creativity of God. It is not our isolated, limited human personality that projects this new idea. We are merely the instrument through which this projection takes place. But we are in partnership with the Projector. Continue reading “Mar. 28, 2918 – I IMBIBE NEW IDEAS FROM THE CREATIVITY OF GOD “
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
I Corinthians 13: 9 – 10
How true it is that we do see as through a glass, darkly, or only in part. But to all of us there come fleeting moments when our inward vision is opened and we seem to look out upon a newer and broader horizon. The Apostle tells us that when that which is perfect shall come, then that which is in part shall be done away. What he really is saying is that we are all at a certain place in our evolution but that there is a complete certainty before us. We shall continuously expand and experience more and more of that Life which already is perfect. Continue reading “Mar. 27, 2018 – I EXPERIENCE THE WHOLENESS OF GOD “
…as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.
All life is One Life. Just as every physical substance known derives from one universal energy, so there is but one Life Principle, which is God, in which we all live from which infinite Source our individual lives are drawn. If this one Life is present everywhere, It is also within us. To say that the Life of God is the only life there is, means that my life is not only in God and of God and from God – it is God, in and through me. Continue reading “Mar. 26, 2018 – I LIVE IN THE LIFE OF GOD “
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity… Habakkuk 1: 13
When the prophet said that God is of too pure eye to behold evil and cannot look on iniquity, he was proclaiming one of the most profound concepts the human mind has ever entertained. For he was really saying that God, who is the originator of all things and the first principle of all life, can never experience evil, nor see it, nor know it. “Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity.” Continue reading “Mar. 25, 2018 – I AM CLEANED BY THE PURITY OF GOD”
The eternal God is thy refuse, and underneath are the everlasting arms. Deuteronomy 33: 27
The everlasting arms suggest Divine protection, complete certainty, and the assurance that all is well with the soul. And how could it be otherwise since the spirit of man is God. Therefore, when we say that we are secure in the everlasting arms of God, we are realizing that our spirit, being one with His, and never separated from its Source, must be, and is, as secure as God. Continue reading “Mar. 24, 2018 – I AM SECURE IN THE EVERLASTING ARMS 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 “
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”
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 “
