“Be Strong! Fear not; Fear is man’s only adversary. You face defeat whenever you are fearful! Fear robs you of all power, for you have lost your contact with the Universal Power House. When you are fearful you begin to attract the thing you fear: you are magnetizing it. Daniel was undisturbed because he knew his God was stronger than the lions.
Many people have lost what they prized most dearly in life. That is because invariably they fear loss. The only weapon you can use against your lions is your word. Your word is your wand, filled with magic and power. You have to walk up to your lions and transmute them into kittens.
How do you walk up to your lions? As Moses said unto his people, “Fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.” Infinite Intelligence knows the way out. Infinite Intelligence knows where the supply is, for every demand. But you must trust It, keep your poise and give It right of way. Stop running away from your fears or disagreeable situations. Face them and trust that it will work out for the best of all concerned.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation: whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life: of whom shall I be afraid?”
Now remember, your only enemies are within yourself. Every negative situation in your life is a crystallized thought, it has been built up out of your own vain imaginings. Your enemy thoughts, your doubts, fears, hates, resentments and forebodings. These situations cannot stand the light of truth. Face the situation fearlessly and know “God is my light and salvation: whom shall I fear?“
You must be wiser than your enemy thoughts, the army of the aliens. You must answer every negative thought with a word of authority. The army of the aliens will chant “Business is dull and money is scarce.” Immediately you reply, “My supply comes from God and now appears like mushrooms overnight.” There are no hard times in the kingdom!
You may have to keep this up for awhile. Finally the army of the aliens is dissolved and dissipated, because you do not give it your attention. You have starved the aliens out. Starve out the fear thoughts by not giving them your attention and acting your faith. The lion draws his fierceness from your fear, his roar is in the tremors of your heart. Stand still like Daniel, and you too shall hear the rush of angels sent to take your part.”
