I AM VITALIZED BY THE STRENGTH OF GOD
…I shall be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.
Isaiah 49: 5
If God is all the life that there is, then this life contains the only energy there is. If we are really hooked up with the eternal, everlasting and perfect Energy, then we should never become weary at all. And when we have an enthusiastic and glad outlook on life we seldom do become weary. Therefore we must convince ourselves that we are vitalized by the strength of God and we must do something to ourselves which makes it certain that this infinite Energy shall increasingly flow through us. It is up to us to make the decision, to follow the course of affirmative thinking, prayer and meditation which shall continually keep this stream of Divine Energy flowing through our minds, our bodies and our affairs, animating everything we do with the vitality that knows no weariness.
Today I am energized by the vitality of the living Spirit. All the Power that there is, all the Energy and Vitality that there is, is mine, and all the enthusiasm for life, the glad expectation of the more yet to be, and all the gratitude for what has been and now is. Every weight or burden of thought or feeling falls from me and I am lifted up into the atmosphere of that Energy, that Vitality which knows only the joy of its own being and the strength of its own being. I am one with all this – vitalized, energized and magnetized by the living Spirit. This Energy is never depleted, it is never lessened. All of it is present right where I am; all the enthusiasm for life is right where I am, and all the joy in living is right where I am. Everything within me, then, today and every day, responds to the thought that “I shall be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.”
