Day 7 Wednesday Strength

Strength

From Keep A True Lent by Charles Fillmore

Read Matthew 4:1-11.

Strength is freedom from weakness; stability of character, power to withstand temptation. It is the force or power to do, capacity to accomplish. “The name of Jehovah is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” Strength originates in Spirit; the thought and the word spiritually expressed bring the manifestation. Jesus is the greatest teacher. He is the type that I am striving to follow, not only in spiritual culture and in mind culture, but in body culture. By faithfully studying and using the methods of Jesus I am bringing forth the very best that is in me. Through Christ the mind and the body of man have the power of using strength on various planes of consciousness. I affirm that I am steadfast and strong in thought and in deed, and thus I am establishing strength in soul and in body. I refuse to let the thought of weakness enter my consciousness, but always ignore the suggestion and affirm myself to be a tower of strength within and without. Supreme strength as demonstrated by Jesus can be attained by one who trusts in Spirit and conserves his vital substance. The strength of Spirit is necessary to the perpetuation of soul and body and to the overcoming of death. As I relax more and more and lift my consciousness to harmonize with the everpresent perfect Mind, I am invigorated and restored to stabilizing power. No harm can befall me. I am made strong through Spirit. I affirm: “The joy of the Lord is a wellspring within me, and I am established in divine strength.”

From Be Ye Transformed  Lent 2017

By Rev. Jennifer L. Sacks

Centered in the power and presence of God within me, I am strong and courageous. I go forth to do what is mine to do.

Spiritual strength helps us remain confident and steadfast as we trust in the power and presence of God with us and within us, especially in times of transformation. Through prayer and meditation, we activate inner strength, which allows us to:
· Be still and patient
· Create stability from a shaky foundation
· Remain nonresistant and nonattached, especially in the face of uncertainty
· Embrace our own humility and limitations
· Accept what we cannot do or control
· Change direction or attempt something new
· Endure challenges and persevere despite them
· Discern when and how to act, rather than react
· Maintain balance between our heads and hearts
· Trust in a divine outcome, even when we don’t yet see it
As we develop our spiritual strength, we learn to trust and use our intuition—the “God Guidance” we seek. With strength, we find assurance as we discern the best ways to live our lives.
