I AM HAPPY IN THE HARMONY OF GOD

Mar 23 2015Now 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.

I PARTAKE OF THE NATURE OF GOD

00897109477The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.  Job 33:4

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.

I RELAX IN THE PEACE OF GOD   

Mar 21 2015And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7

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.

I AM GOVERNED BY THE LAW OF GOD

Mar 19 2015For 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. Continue reading “March 19, 2016”

I AM WARMED BY THE LOVE OF GOD  

Mar 18 2015Behold, 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.

I SEE WITH THE EYES OF GOD

Mar 17 2015…one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.  John 9:25

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?

I AM ENDOWED WITH THE PERFECTION OF GOD 

Mar 16 2015Be 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.
