WITHIN ME THE SPIRIT IS ALIVE AND VITAL
Thou gavest also thy good Spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst. Nehemiah 9:20
This is a universe of activity and vitality, and if we would live in it effectually, we must be actively and vitally alive. The Mind that created and sustained the universe must have as its essential nature vitality and activity. We are Sons of God, the expressions of the Creative Mind, and our inheritance is the capacity to express life with a punch, a zest and a joy. To do this we must be aware of our inner Divine Potential and through co-operation with it, let it act through us. Thus, we pray and treat to know that God is the energy, vitality and essence of our lives. From a center within ourselves there springs forth all that we need to live in creative ways and be a blessing to the world. The followers of Jesus were given by him a strong message to be vital and definite partners with life. Christianity must develop a mass of right-thinking people who demonstrate this energy of Spirit in creative ways.
Within me is a part of God, it is my own true self. This inner spirit releases through me the energy, vitality and joy of the Lord. My whole body is now filled with God’s vitality. I am not fatigued this day, for God’s energy, working in every cell of my body, renews and maintains me in complete perfection. I am alive and vital for God’s Ideas fill my consciousness. New creative channels open for me this day in my business and family life. I look forward to new ways of service, new ways of expressing love. I dedicate all that I am to being vitally alive with the life of God. I shall be a blessing to all who contact me this day.
