from Catherine Ponder, “How To Live a Prosperous Life.”
In order to receive our Divine Heritage we have to acknowledge God’s presence, power and intelligence.
In this way you link energies with the Creative and claim your benefits… we follow His signals.
We renew our minds through positive thinking, which is the expression of faith, confidence,
certainty, optimism, the expectancy of good. Positive thought sets in motion powerful principles.
Look and dwell on the good in all persons and situations rather than wasting time and thought on lesser appearances. This renews your mind, body and affairs and attracts miracles of good. God reaches us and fills us with His power through our minds. He may be revealed to us through the signal of “a still small voice” of conscience. He may come through an idea that flashes across our minds or through the words of a friend or an article we read. He may be revealed to us through prayer and meditation or through wisdom gained in an outer experience. But his communication will always reach our minds before we assimilate it and put it to work.
Thoughts are either positive or negative. If they are positive thoughts, usually expressed in faith and optimism, they will draw more good through channels of peace, health, prosperity and love to us. If they are negative thoughts, usually expressed in fear, doubt and pessimism, they will draw more negation to us through channels of illness, poverty, inharmony and disaster.
Daily practice of prayer is the first step. Prayer calms our outer thoughts and awakens the presence and power of Spirit within us and all around us. Prayer is the most effective method of renewal and transformation, because in prayer you associate with God and not with the problem. Release the problem to God for the solution. In doing this, you are relieved of tension and struggle and experience peace and renewal. This process makes way for the answer and solution, which is what you hope and pray for.
Daily practice of praise in another step. It brings out the good in both us and other people. It produces harmony and good will. Praise is dwelling on the good in people and situations and making the most of that good.
We can change our attitudes and our lives through daily use of prayer and praise, we can also experience unlimited good through the powerful combination of prayer and praise in high, positive thought and vision.
“I go to meet my good.”
“New doors of good now open to me. With a confident spirit, I go forth into experiences of happiness, prosperity and abundant living.”
“Everything that comes in my life is good and I have only the good. Health, wealth and happiness are my divine right and I claim and experience them now.”
“The spirit of success in now working in me. I am divinely guided, healed, prospered and blessed.”
Have a wonderful and prosperous day!
