I AM CLEANED BY THE PURITY 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.” What could be plainer or more evident than that he was saying that God neither creates nor experiences evil; that we are cleaned by the purity of God. Suppose we liken this purity of God to a clear stream of water which knows no impurity and in which we bathe. The very act of our entering the stream purifies us without contaminating the stream itself. And so it is in our relationship with the Divine, who is free from all evil, and the Law of Good that knows no limitation.
Today I enter into the stream of pure Life, knowing that as I bathe in the spiritual waters of perfection, my whole being is cleaned, purified and made whole. Today I turn from all evil, from every sense of limitation, of fear or uncertainty, and bathe in the waters of freedom, purifying myself from the belief or experience of want or need. Today, as I bathe in the waters of pure Spirit, I loose every negation of the past. I am cleaned of all fear of the future. I am purified from all uncertainty in the present. I enter a new, a complete and a perfect Life, here and now. Today is God’s day. I shall rejoice in it. I shall sing a song unto that which is beyond all evil.
