Day 3: God

3rd Day  Friday

God

Read John 15:1-16.

“God is Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” We do not see God with our physical eyes excepting as He manifests Himself through His works. His attributes are therefore brought into expression by man who is His son and who is like Him in essence. Jesus was a true expression of God because He was like Him. If we would manifest the divine attributes, we must seek to attain the consciousness and the understanding that characterized Jesus. We must endeavor to raise our thoughts and feelings to God’s level if we would make ourselves channels through which He can come forth into expression and manifestation. God transcendent suggests God as above and beyond His creation. This idea of God as remote from the practical affairs of man or from man’s own experience is false. God (perfection) is not out of reach of His offspring nor something beyond or above them. Tennyson tells us that “closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.” I am centered in God because I focus my attention on His ideas and ideals. The Holy Spirit, which is the Word of God in action, leads me into a consciousness of my divine sonship and inheritance. My inheritance from Him is executive ability, abundant supply, faithfulness, joy, all good. “I am thy portion and thine inheritance.” In the name of Jesus Christ I declare: “God’s perfect plan of bodily perfection is bearing fruit, and I am made whole.”

God is my help in every need.
Many of us grew up with the idea that God was separate from us and far away—managing earthly affairs from a distance. When we realize God is not a superbeing in the sky but a presence that is “closer than hands and feet,” part of our very being, everything changes. God becomes our inner sanctuary, our innate guidance, our intimate friend. This is the God—the Abba—of Jesus, loving, compassionate, and kind. In times of joy, we direct our gratitude to God as the eternal divine presence, blessing us inside and out. In times of need, we go apart for a while, become still, and find the peace of God within us. We may forget God, but God never leaves us. God is our help in every need. As we connect with Spirit within, our way is made clear. The grace of God is upon us.
