Faith is more than an objective statement. We do not have perfect faith while any subjective contradictions deny the affirmation of our lips.
Today I have faith that my word shall not return unto me void. Today I surrender myself completely to this faith, for I know that there is a creative Spirit which gives substance to this faith and which will provide the evidence of this substance in actual fact. I expect, then, to meet my good and I rejoice in the anticipation of this good. I know that my faith operates through an immutable Law and that there is no possibility whatsoever of its failing.
Every man is “dear to the heart of God.” We should all develop an increasing consciousness that we are protected and guided in everything we do, say or think.
Today I know that the Spirit goes before me, making plain my way. I feel that everything I do shall be prospered and I fully accept that I am in partnership with the Infinite. It is my desire that only good shall go from me, therefore I have a right to expect that only good shall return to me. I live under the government of Good and am guided by the Spirit of God. This I affirm; this I accept.
So God created man in his own image … And God blessed them and God said unto them … replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
It is because the Spirit of God is incarnated in us that we have dominion over the world of effects. This dominion is exercised in such degree as we sense its true meaning.
Today I rise above the sense of separation into a consciousness of my union with Good. Today I understand that the power of God flows through me to everything I contact.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him and he shall bring it to pass.
