WHAT I DECREE TODAY HAPPENS
I stand in a universe which responds to me. My world being a subconscious intelligence must respond to my conscious thought, act upon it, and produce what I decree. It has no power to resist me, and no way of not doing what I direct. I act upon the One Mind and the world of form reacts to me in direct response. My word is power. My thought is a direction to the universal power and presence. My active treatment is a command to the subconscious to produce what I want. Knowing what I really want, I now speak with authority to my own mind, and the sum-total powers of the universe produce my command in form. This is my power and my authority as a Son of God.
Jesus bid the waves be still, and they calmed at his word. I now look out upon the troubles of my own experience, and declare “Peace, be still.” Jesus demonstrated to all that God’s Power is the only Power. I am a center of this Power, and It seeks my recognition and direction. My thought directs It and my emotions motivate It. I am the only authority in my world. I may give this authority to others, to situations or to conditions, but it is my free choice to do so. God’s action through me is only conditioned by me, and I now give It freedom to act for my good, by directing It to do so.
Nothing can happen to me, unless I am the channel through which it acts. I now refuse all evil, all inharmony and all disease. My mind is centered in the good, the true and the wise. Projecting good, I experience good. Wise in the ways of the Spirit, I know what to do and speak my word to accomplish it. In me there is Wisdom born of God. In me there is Love born of the Infinite Love. I now decree their release into my experience. I decree my own good, and this makes it a good to others. I accept the responsibility of life. I declare the Truth and my world must mirror only Truth.
