I RECEIVE MY GOOD
What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
How simply Jesus tells us that whatever we need we shall receive if we believe that we have it! Is it so hard, then, for us to believe that the divine gift is forever made? Prayer is a sincere desire to enter into conscious union with the Divine Presence and to receive from It every good thing that makes life worthwhile.
The Truth leads me into a more abundant spiritual life. It also leads me into the possession of everything necessary to my well-being here on earth. When I discover the inner kingdom, with its spiritual gifts, the material gifts which shadow forth this inner kingdom will also make their appearance. I now learn to forget the wrong that may have appeared in my outer world, and turning with gratitude to that inner Light, I think upon those things which are good. In doing this I become emancipated from my previous bondage.
My prayer today is one of affirmation. It incorporates a complete acceptance of the Divine beneficence and the eternal givingness of the Spirit. Today I lift high my cup of acceptance, knowing that the universal Horn of Plenty fills it to overflowing. This shall include everything I need, whether it be health, happiness or wisdom. Today my mind is open and my consciousness receives the kingdom into itself.
