Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle, who shall dwell in thy holy hill?  He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. 

Psalm 15:1,2

If the power of God is greater than the assumed power of evil, then it is up to us to prove it.  Too many people say they believe that God is omnipotent, and continue to demonstrate unhappiness, illness and lack.  The fact is that if they really believed it, they would prove it in their own experience.  One of the reasons for failure in proving our principle is an unconscious resistance to spiritual things.  Often we are unaware we have this resistance, and thus seek alibis for our lack of good.  There is a simple way of removing this block to spiritual demonstration.  It is affirming that God in man doeth the work.  It is the knowing that Infinite Mind thinks through our minds at every instant, and Its ideas are flowing through us into form.  The “righteous” are those who let God work through them for the accomplishment of good.

I believe that this is God’s universe and that His Mind releases through me Its perfect ideas at every instant.  I believe that I am the creation of Infinite Mind, and therefore I am open and receptive to all ideas born of God.  There is nothing in my consciousness which refutes the things of the Spirit.  There is no resistance to God and His good.  I am now consciously receptive to the divine inflow of Truth.  I accept It, I assimilate It, and I pass It on to my fellowman in joy and delight.  I let God work in my mind, my heart and my affairs.
