July 9 – Upheld
Go forward unafraid.
Face each difficulty, however great and seemingly unconquerable, as you go forward towards it.
The strength you will require from Me for that adventure into danger, as it may seem to you, will fortify you for its overcoming.
“Fear thou not to, for I am with thee, Be not afraid for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee, I will help thee, Yea, I will uphold thee with the right arm of My Righteousness.”
July 8 – Remember Me
Give me a constant remembrance of Thee.
Ask what you will and it shall be done unto you. But only if the heart desires what the lips express. “The Lord looketh on the heart.”
You will grow into the true attitude of remembrance of Me as you learn more and more to attribute all your blessings, all your guidance, to My increasing care; to the mind of your Master behind all, inspiring all, controlling all, the source of all your good.
July 7 – Love’s Growth
Learn from Nature the profusion of her gifts.
As you daily realize more and more the generosity of the Divine Giver, learn increasingly to give.
Love grows by giving.
You cannot give bountifully without being filled with a sense of giving yourself with a gift, and you cannot so give without Love passing from you to the one who receives.
You are conscious, not of yourself as generous, but of the Divine Giver as bounteous beyond all human words to express.
So Love flows into you with an intensity that is both humbling and exalting as Love flows from you with your gift.
July 6 – Listen Carefully
My poor deaf world. What it misses in loving Words and Whispers.
I want to share so much with it. It will not listen.
“Wherefor do you spend money for that which is not bread and your labour for that which satisfieth not. Harken diligently unto Me and eat that which is good and let your Soul delight itself . . .”
“He that willeth to do My Will — shall know.”
Whose Voice would you hear? So many voices are about you that you may miss the Still Small Voice.
“This is My Beloved — Hear Him.”
July 4 – Break Free
For by whom a man is overcome . . . he is the slave.
I cut the bonds of sin which bound you to evil. With loving Hands I replaced each with my cords of Love, which bound you to Me, your Lord.
The power of evil is subtle. A cut cord, a snapped cord, would awaken your slumbering conscience, but strand by strand, so carefully, with gentleness cunningly acquired, evil works until a cord is free. Even then the work is slow, but oh, so sure, until presently the old bond I severed is binding you to evil, strand by strand.
Snap off these returning fetters. Satan hath desire to have you that he may sift you as wheat. He works with an efficiency My servants would do well to copy. He has marked you as one who will increasingly bring souls to Me.
July 3 – Hiding in Thee
Follow Me, and whether it be in the storm, or along the dusty highroad, or over the places of stones, or in the cool glade or the meadow, or by the waters of comfort, then, with Me, in each experience there will be a place of refuge.
At times you seem to follow afar off. Then weary with the burden and the way, you stretch out a hand to touch the hem of My Garment.
Suddenly there is no dust, no weariness. You have found Me. My child, even if it seems unprofitable, continue your drudgery, whether it be of spiritual, mental, or physical effort. Truly it serves its turn if it but lead you to seek help from Me.
July 2 – Dangerous Power
Do you not see how unnecessary is your learning the method of Spirit-attack? There must be a certain root-faith and Me, or you could not trust yourself to perfect surrender to Me. But there must come to those who walk all the way with Me, a yielding of their wills and lives wholly to Me, or the greater faith that results would be a source of danger. It would drag you back to the material plane, instead of to Spiritual Heights.
For unless your will is wholly Mine, you will rely on this new God-given Power, and call into being that which is not for the furtherance of My Kingdom.
July 1 – Out of the Unseen
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
You do not yet see, nor will you see fully while you are on this earth, but faith, cooperating with Spiritual Power, actually calls into being that for which you hope.
Men speak of dreams come true. But you know them as answered prayers; manifestations of Spirit Force in the Unseen. So trust boundlessly.
June 30 – Immune from Evil
Evil was conquered by Me, and to all who rely on Me there is immunity from it.
Turn evil aside with the darts I provide.
Rejoicing in tribulation is one dart.
Practicing My Presence is another.
Self-emptying is another.
Claiming My Power over temptation is another
You will find many of these darts as you tread My Way and you will learn to use them adroitly, swiftly. Each is adapted to the need of the moment.
June 29 – All One
Every man is your brother, every woman your sister, every child your child. You are to know no difference of race, color, or creed. One is your Father and all ye are brethren.
This is the Unity I came to teach — Man united with God and His great family. Not man alone, seeking a oneness with God alone. See God the Father with His great world family, and, as you seek union with Him, it must mean for you attachment to His family, His other children.
He acknowledges all as His children, not all acknowledge Him as their Father.
