I will extol thee, O Lord: for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. Psalm 30:1

Every negative condition that stands on our pathway is a test of how much we know about God and His Mind.  If we agree with evil, we are the victims of evil.  If we agree with good, we are demonstrating the power of God. This day, like all others, will offer us many opportunities to give evidence of our ability to overcome evil with good.  To the extent that we accomplish this we are worthy of the name “the sons of God.”  Like David, we must affirm that “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”  The hidden enemies of our own consciousness need to be revealed and destroyed by such affirmations of what God really is.  They wither under prayer and flourish under worry.  Consistent right thinking of ourselves as creative outlets for the Infinite Mind and Its Infinite Love guarantees their  demise.

God is Truth and I am the expression of Truth.  Only the Truth functions in my thought today.  To every negative I say “begone.”  I am willing that every destructive idea in my unconscious mind now be revealed to me, and I now dismiss it.  God fills my whole area of consciousness with His unlimited power of good. I am cleaned of all error, and filled with all Truth.  My mind and God’s Mind are one and no evil can exist in me, happen to me nor proceed forth from me.  I am a son of God releasing good into my world, and offering good to everyone with whom I love, work and have fellowship.  God speaks through me His Truth and I live in a perfect world right now.
