TODAY I PROCLAIM MY DIVINE INHERITANCE  

May 20 2015Neglect not the gift that is in thee … I Timothy 4: 14

If two persons were exactly alike, one would be unnecessary in the scheme of things.  Emerson said that imitation is suicide.  The Divine Spirit never made any two things alike – no two rose bushes, no two snowflakes, no two grains of sand, and no two persons.  We are all just a little unique so that each may wear a different face, behind which is the same, the one and the only Presence, which is God.  It is right and necessary that we should be individuals.  Unity does not mean uniformity.  Unity means that everything draws its strength, its power and its ability to live from One Source.  One Life flows through everything.  This Life is never monotonous; it is forever doing new things in you and in me.

I SURRENDER ALL FEAR, DOUBT OR UNCERTAINTY AND ACCEPT THE GIFT OF LIFE TODAY 

May 19 2015Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom:  Luke 12:32

We should always keep in mind that we are beneficiaries of Life.  We do not put the chicken in the egg, nor the oak tree in the acorn.  Rather, we take them out.  We did not create the Divine Presence nor the Law of Good; we commune with this Presence and use the Law.  Therefore, Jesus said that it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.  It is our business to receive it.  And in doing this we follow the same method that any scientist would, for the scientist knows that he did not create the laws that he uses or the principles which he employs.

MY MIND IS RECEPTIVE TO NEW IDEAS AND MY THOUGHT IS CENTERED ON NEW BEGINNINGS   

May 18 2015For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth:  and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.    Isaiah 65:17

Nothing is ever twice alike.  It is said that the physical body is never more than a year old, that we discard many bodies through life.  Everything is continuously being re-created and it literally is true that the Divine Creative Spirit is forever making a new heaven and a new earth.  We must permit It to make a new one for us.

THE SPIRIT IN ME IS ALIVE, AWAKE AND AWARE, FLOWING EVER THROUGH ME IN PERFECT LIFE   

May 17 2015The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.    Job 33: 4

Man is a spirit but he seldom recognizes this greatest of all truths about himself.  Seldom does he invite the Spirit into his mind or open all the doorways of his thought in complete acceptance.  The Bible tells us to let that mind be in us which was in Christ, which, of course, is the Mind of God and the invisible Guest in every person.

MY LIFE SHOWS FORTH THE SPIRIT THAT NEVER FAILS AND CONSTRUCTIVE ACTION FILLS MY DAY

May 16 2015And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, shall draw all men unto me:    John 12: 32

When Jesus spoke of being “lifted up from the earth” he meant that that which is human about us must be consciously become united with the Divine.  In ancient writings the earth stood for the lowest form of life while heaven represented the highest.  Therefore, being lifted up from the earth means uniting earth with heaven.  This daily lifting up of our thought is necessary if we wish to so unite ourselves and everything we are doing with the Divine, the spiritual Power that flows through us and into all our acts.

I KNOW THAT THE LIFE OF THE SPIRIT IS MY DAILY LIFE   

May 15 2015The Lord is my shepherd … He restoreth my soul … Psalm 23: 1, 2

As we take this thought for our meditation today: “The Lord is my shepherd … He restoreth my soul,” let us feel that we are one with the Divine Presence; and enter into conscious communion with It.  This is affirmative prayer and spiritual meditation.  It is through spiritual meditation that we reach out, or in, to that Divine Presence which fills all space and also finds its dwelling place in the sanctuary of our own hearts. Continue reading “May 15, 2016”

I PLACE MY AFFAIRS IN THE HANDS OF DIVINE GOODNESS AND ENTER INTO THE FULLNESS OF LIFE    

May 14 2015Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.    Matthew 6:10

When Jesus said, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven,” he was affirming that there is a Perfection at the center of everything.  He was telling us that when we reach this inward Perfection it will be revealed to ourselves and others, and that it must finally establish the Kingdom of God on earth, as it most certainly will.

TODAY I ACKNOWLEDGE THE OUTPOURING OF THE SPIRIT EVERYWHERE   

May 13 2015God so loved the world, that he gave …    John 3:16

How could we better explain this than to use the words of Browning where he said:  “Tis Thou, God, who giveth, ‘tis I who receive”?  Or Emerson who said that we are “beneficiaries of the Divine fact”?  The thoughts of both Emerson and Browning were thoughts of acceptance and recognition.  Like all men of great spiritual insight, they knew that the gift of Life is an eternal reality, that it is our office to accept it. Continue reading “May 13, 2016”

TODAY I RECEIVE THE INHERITANCE WHICH GOD HAS GIVEN ME 

May 12 2015… thou shalt rejoice … in all that thou puttest thine hands unto:    Deuteronomy 12:18

Affirmative prayer means that we clear the mind of all doubt and fear and turn in faith to the great Giver of life.  It means that we become aware of the Presence of God within and around us, here and now.  It means that we affirm this Presence and accept It, quietly, calmly and peacefully, in all its fullness. Continue reading “May 12, 2016”

I CLEANSE THE WINDOW OF MY MIND THAT IT MAY BECOME A MIRROR REFLECTING INSPIRATION FROM THE MOST HIGH  

May 11 2015… and 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.    Malachi 3:10

We should believe that God is the invisible Partner in our lives and affirm that Divine Love goes before us and prepares the way.  We should permit ourselves to be guided for there is something within us, deep at the center of our being, which knows what we ought to do and how we ought to do it.
