I SURRENDER ALL FEAR, DOUBT OR UNCERTAINTY AND ACCEPT THE GIFT OF LIFE TODAY
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom:
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.
It is my Father’s good pleasure to give me the Kingdom. Today I accept this Kingdom, which it is the pleasure of the heavenly Father to give to me, and I accept it in its fullness. Today shall contain joy and happiness; today shall be filled with peace, and through it all will be running the silent power of spiritual forces, which will harmoniously and happily govern my thoughts, decisions and acceptances so that everything I do will be done without effort.
I lay all weariness aside and accept the life-giving, invigorating, dynamic power of the Spirit, knowing that It vitalizes every organ of my body: It flows with power and strength and purpose through everything I do, even as It leads me gently down the pathway of life. Today is the day that God has made, and I am glad in it. And when evening comes, the cool shadows of peace shall fall across my pathway and the quiet of the night shall enter into my soul, while the beatitude of the Spirit flows through me as a river of life.
