TODAY I WAIT UPON THE LORD WITHIN ME
The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.
Knowing that the Divine Spirit is everywhere, and realizing that everyone who asks receives, today I ask of my spiritual Self that It shall come forth afresh; that It shall direct every decision with intelligence and that It shall make perfect my way before me.
Realizing that the Lord of Life is my true inner self, the incarnation of God in me, I learn to lean upon this divine Shepherd; to accept every desired good as though it were already an accomplished fact; to let nothing enter my thought that would contradict the allness and the goodness of the Spirit. The divine Shepherd is ever with me, guiding, counseling and leading me into pathways of peace and security.
Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, “Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always.” This assures me that Divine Power can do anything and that Divine Love will not refuse any good gift. Since the Divine Gift and the Divine Giver are one, and since God is both peace and joy, I know that everything which transpires in my experience today will bring peace and joy. I know that everything will bring happiness and success. I rest in calm expectation, in enthusiastic anticipation of every event that is to transpire, because I wait upon the Lord within me.
