I RECEIVE MY GOD
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
How can we receive what the mind refuses to entertain? Should we not, then, consciously develop the ability to receive more? We make life little and mean and limit our own possibilities when we refuse to accept the whole gift of God. We should open our consciousness to a receptivity of the Divine. There will never be any point of saturation because God is infinite. We cannot contract the Infinite, but we can expand the finite.
“The word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart.” Realizing that God has placed the power of life in my own mind, today I am resolved to use this power in accord with the nature of the Divine Mind. I shall no longer look for God in some distant place, but shall find Him directly at the center of my own being.
Today I ask and know that I shall receive. Today I seek and know that I shall find. Today I knock and know that shall be opened unto me. But what is it that I ask for? What is it that I really seek? It is to discover God in everything, to see the Divine manifest in everyone, to come into close and conscious communion with Life. Today, then, I receive the gift of God in its fullness, unstinted, complete.
