WHATEVER NEEDS TO BE DONE, IT IS BEING DONE NOW BY THE ACTION OF GOD, THE ACTION OF MIND
The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me. Psalm 138:8
Patience in spiritual demonstration is not only a great virtue; it is also a definite necessity. We must believe that the word we have spoken does accomplish that whereunto it has been sent. Too often we pray and then immediately look to see if the result has appeared. We fail to realize that a process is involved. Our word has set the Law into activity, and the result will take place when the process in demonstration has been completed. Having spoken the word, we then rest in the knowing that the Law is doing the rest. This takes the strain and stress out of metaphysical practice. It brings calm assurance, which is the mental atmosphere necessary for the seed to take root and become the full-blown flower. Declaring the Truth is our work. Producing the demonstration is God’s work. The word is always made flesh when we let it evolve in its own way.
I declare the Truth, for it is that which is true of God. I believe the Law of Mind is now in action in my consciousness bringing forth the good I need and desire. I rest in complete confidence that all through this day the invisible Mind of the universe is working for me and through me in perfect ways. There is no sense of hurry or impatience, for God is at work. Whatever needs to be done in my life, is being done now by the activity of the Spirit. I relax and rest in the one Presence and the one Power. All is order, harmony and intelligent activity. Great events of good are being born into my world and I rejoice, give thanks, and am glad.
