I REFUSE TO WORRY, I TRUST GOD AND MAN
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
Matthew 6: 34
The most insidious thing which the student of Truth must handle is worry. We do not consciously set aside times for worry, as we do for right thinking, and often we are startled to find that we have been wasting an hour fussing over some problem or fear. We immediately say “But, I know better than to do that,” and we start making positive statements of Truth. This is what Jesus meant when he said “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation.” Continue reading “Oct. 16, 2018 – I REFUSE TO WORRY, I TRUST GOD AND MAN”
GOD AROUND ME, GOD WITHIN ME, ALL IS WELL
One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all.
Ephesians 4: 5,6
We live in the midst of an unlimited Presence, forever in action as unlimited Mind. It created us, and it sustains us. It operates through us. All it asks of us is our recognition of It. As we affirm the Presence and Power of God in our lives, something happens within us to improve us. This can be tested by anyone who wishes to see what will happen when God works in his experience. Continue reading “Oct. 15, 2018 – GOD AROUND ME, GOD WITHIN ME, ALL IS WELL”
GOD IS MY EMPLOYER: MY WORK IS EFFICIENT, CREATIVE AND RIGHT
For we are laborers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
I Corinthians 3: 9
Living in a universe of activity we are expected to be efficient and creative. Our work, whether in office, factory or home is that part of the universal activity which we have selected to do. Therefore, we should do it with ease, with efficiency and with pleasure. We confuse issues and think we are earning money, instead of seeing our true position as a center through which the universal activity of mind focalizes itself by means of us. Continue reading “Oct. 14, 2018 – GOD IS MY EMPLOYER: MY WORK IS EFFICIENT, CREATIVE AND RIGHT”
WHATEVER NEEDS TO BE DONE, IT IS BEING DONE NOW BY THE ACTION OF GOD, THE ACTION OF MIND
The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me.
Patience in spiritual demonstration is not only a great virtue; it is also a definite necessity. We must believe that the word we have spoken does accomplish that whereunto it has been sent. Too often we pray and then immediately look to see if the result has appeared. We fail to realize that a process is involved. Continue reading “Oct. 13, 2018 – WHATEVER NEEDS TO BE DONE, IT IS BEING DONE NOW BY THE ACTION OF GOD, THE ACTION OF MIND”
I AM POISED AND ESTABLISHED IN THE ONE MIND
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.
Isaiah 26: 3
The assets of a spiritually minded person are his ability to remain untouched by the confusion of the world around him, and to instigate a creative process which will bring order out of chaos. It may seem easier to exist in a panicky state of mind, telling all whom we meet how difficult life is, than to remain poised and say nothing at all. Continue reading “Oct. 12, 2018 – I AM POISED AND ESTABLISHED IN THE ONE MIND”
THERE IS NOTHING IN MY WORLD BUT THE LIFE AND LOVE OF GOD
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof: the world, and they that dwell therein.
Our world offers us the opportunity to co-operate with it on a spiritual basis, or to argue with it on a material basis. If we do the first, we have an abundant life with great peace. If we resist and argue with circumstances we find our troubles heap themselves upon us in even greater measure. The Bible states that man has dominion over his world if and when he assumes if from a spiritual premise. Continue reading “Oct. 11, 2018 – THERE IS NOTHING IN MY WORLD BUT THE LIFE AND LOVE OF GOD”
I AM ALIVE WITH THE CLEAN, FRESH LIFE OF SPIRIT
There if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away: behold all things are become new.
II Corinthians 5:17
The Bible reminds us that it is the essential nature of God to ever renew and ever revitalize His creation. “Behold, I make all things new.” This great healing, energizing activity is around us as a vital Presence and within us as a vital Life. We did not create it, neither does our food, nor our exercise and play create it. Continue reading “Oct. 10, 2018 – I AM ALIVE WITH THE CLEAN, FRESH LIFE OF SPIRIT”
THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH, THE MEDITATIONS OF MY HEART AND THE ACTIVITIES OF MY HANDS ARE ACCEPTABLE TO INFINITE MIND
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
Ephesians 4: 24,25
The inner life of man is his most priceless possession. In the center of our beings, we decide whether we shall be worthy of the Divine Life with which we have been endowed by the Creative mind of the Universe. When the inner life is creative, orderly and growing then our outer activities are fine and true. We know the Law of Mind, and to be the sincere and creative people we hope to be, we have to be truly consecrated within. Continue reading “Oct. 09, 2018 – THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH, THE MEDITATIONS OF MY HEART AND THE ACTIVITIES OF MY HANDS ARE ACCEPTABLE TO INFINITE MIND”
I AM SURROUNDED, UPHELD AND MAINTAINED BY A PERFECT MIND
The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
The people in all ages who have lifted up their eyes unto the hills of God have felt a surrounding Presence and a sustaining Life. They have been aware of an indwelling Power that was more than body, more than material living. It has surged up within them and has given them the power of accomplishment. Because this Presence is eternal, we can find It and let It use us today, as it did the Prophets and Wise of old. The living Presence which surrounded Abraham, Moses, Isaiah and Jesus is around us now, and It asks that we behold It and think of It. The Glory of God is upon us. We, too, can lift up our thoughts and become its vessel of expression. Infinite Mind surrounds us and is in us; Infinite Life sustains us; Infinite Power flows through us. All fear is removed for we are certain of who we are and of what we are doing. We arise from the “I can’t” belief into the “I will” knowing.
I am surrounded, upheld and maintained by Mind. This Mind is God, forever thinking through me. It knows no impossibility, no weakness, no lack. It loves to live abundantly by means of me. It loves to express Power through my hands and my heart. I am strong in the Strength of the Lord. I am sustained in all my ways by the indwelling action of Truth. I am upheld in righteousness and justice, for all that I am God is and ever shall be. I walk the highways of Spirit, knowing only the good of my fellowman. I rejoice in the Spirit which fills and floods me with peace. This day is the day of Good, and I accept with joy new and finer experiences of life.
Taken from “365 Days of Richer Living” by Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker
THERE ISN’T GOD AND MAN; THERE IS ONLY GOD AS MAN; AND I AM THAT MAN NOW
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works: and that my soul knoweth right well. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me. O God! How great is the sum of them.
Psalms 139 – 14, 17
We believe in the divinity of man. We believe that man is the individualization of all that God is. Infinite Mind is forever thinking by means of its beloved creation – man. Each of us stands in the midst of an omnipresent Intelligence, which seeks to express through us, and as we recognize (re-cognize, to know again) this relationship we become valuable instruments for good.
