“What do I do when I feel doubt or distrust? How do I find the courage and faith to declare divine order and know that all will be well?
My heart is lifted as I remember that I am always loved by God, and that God wants what is best for me. The Gospel According to Luke reminds me “it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” This higher Truth overcomes my uncertainty. My faith sets me free from all worrisome thoughts.
When I look at my life, I find evidence of God’s love. There are people in my life who care about me. I have opportunities to express my highest self wherever I am. I have sufficient faith to put my trust in God above all.
Divine order is ever-present in my life.
“For He has made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things and secure.” 2 Samuel 23:5
“For this is thanks worthy, if a man of conscience toward God endure grief, suffering, wrongfully. For what glory is it, if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
Because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps; who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth; who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously.
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.”
1 Peter 19 – 24
“Realization is the awareness and inner knowing that my prayers will be answered. My faith is evident when I give thanks in advance because I know in my heart and mind that answers are manifesting.
The light of understanding comes to me as I pray and listen, standing firm in belief. Myrtle Fillmore once shared, ‘Heaven and earth listen and respond to the soul that is quickened into praise and thanksgiving.’
I feel God’s presence as assurance, comfort, and love. I continue with prayer, then let go and rest in the realization that spiritual understanding will come. Guidance will be revealed. Divine light will dispel darkness and make the path unmistakably clear.”
For nothing is hidden that will not be disclosed, nor is anything secret that will not become known and come to light.—Luke 8:17
Nature reminds me that there is a season for everything. Bright red or yellow apples began as a compact bud of potential, unfolded into a beautiful springtime blossom, and then matured into a luscious and nutritious fruit ready for harvest. Each stage of the apple’s development was orderly and essential for fulfillment.
Order is also active in my life. I am inspired with ideas that follow an orderly path toward fulfillment. I give my ideas time to develop, nourish them with thought and consideration, and then take constructive action. I seek God’s guidance and align my efforts with the divine order of the creative process. I experience a divinely ordered flow as I grow in spiritual understanding.”
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.—Ecclesiastes 3:1
