October 16 – The Imprisoned God
Our Lord, we praise Thee and bless Thy Name forever.
Yes! Praise. That moment, in the most difficult place, your sorrow is turned to Joy, your fret to praise, the outward circumstances change from those of disorder to order, of chaos to calm.
The beginning of all reform must be in yourselves. However restricted your circumstances, however little you may be able to remedy financial affairs, you can always turn to yourselves, and seeing something not in order there, seek to right that.
As all reform is from within out, you will always find the outward has improved too. To do this is to release the imprisoned God-Power within you.
That Power, once operative, will immediately perform miracles. Then indeed shall your mourning be turned into Joy.
Fret not thyself because of evildoers … Trust in the Lord, and
do good … Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give
thee the desires of thine heart. Psalm 37:1-4
