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. Job 33:4
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.
