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. Psalm 24:1
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. It also states that the world is a spiritual organism. Putting these statements together we have the key. The conscious can always control the subconscious; therefore, we can control the conditions of our world when we see it as the creation of God-Mind. If God created it, then His Life and Love must dwell in it. This we believe, and for this we look on every side. We agree with Life and with Love. We expect these qualities of Spirit to be in our present environment and experience.
There is nothing in my world but the life and Love of God. I refuse to believe otherwise. I live this day abundantly and lovingly, for I accept and express God’s Life and Love. Wherever I go and whatever I do I am surrounded, upheld and maintained by this perfect good. I behold good in every situation, every person and every place I go. I walk in God’s presence upon God’s world and greet my fellowman as God’s beloved creation. I expect more Life and more Love to be mine today than I have ever known before. My body is filled with perfect Life; my world is filled with perfect Love. I declare this, I believe this, and I know this is true right here and right now.
