God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your strength, but with the temptation will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

I Corinthians 10:13

Infinite Mind is forever in action, producing good.  This action is the activity of man. I now realize that I am an outlet for the perfect action of a perfect God.  Therefore, my yoke is easy and my burden is light, for God does the work.  I am a center in the Divine Mind, and I direct the action of that Mind through me.  My work is to let God’s action flow through me into creative and valuable results.  This takes the burden of hard work off my shoulders, and I accomplish all things with ease.

My work is easy, for I let the Spirit within me do it.  I know that there is no need to struggle for a living, for God acting through me makes easy my job.  I now relax and know that within me right action is taking place, and that I am inspired to right results.  My life is the Life of the Spirit, and my work is to release this Spirit, and I now do it.  As I let this action take control of my work, everything I need appears at the instant I need it.  All the strength I need is within me, and never fails me.  All the wisdom I need is within me and guides me constantly.

I do not believe that I have to work to be successful.  I only know that success is mine to the extent that I let Spiritual Ideas work in my mind, and Love work in my heart.  I approach whatever needs to be done with confidence that I am equal to the situation.  I lean upon the indwelling Spirit, and It never refuses to respond to my call.  Letting God do the work assures me of perfect results.  My mind is receptive to God, and I am divinely sustained by His action through me.  Success is no longer before me; it is now where I am, and is appearing in all that I do.
