I AM GUIDED BY THE WISDOM OF GOD
Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom…. But let him that glorieth, glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me. Jeremiah 9: 23-24
Some universal and infinite Intelligence governs everything, holds everything in place, and directs the course of everything. The Intelligence that governs the planets in their courses is the same Wisdom that is in the anthill or the beehive; this same Wisdom is in the bird that flies north in summer and south in winter and knows where to find its food. But that which is blind or instinctive knowing in the animal, should become conscious knowing and will in the human. In the animal kingdom it works as a blind force; in the human kingdom it works through blind force only in the automatic reactions of nature such as the involuntary functions of the human body. But the more personal use of it – whether or not we shall call upon the One Mind and Spirit to direct and govern our affairs – this depends upon our personal choice. This is what freedom and individuality mean.Today I am guided by the Wisdom of God in everything I do, say or think. Since there is nothing large or small in the Infinite and Divine Mind, I know that the same Wisdom that governs everything in the universe is brought to bear upon the little things in my personal life. I permit this Wisdom to direct me. I affirm the presence of this Wisdom and acknowledge Its action in everything in my life. Therefore I know what to do under every circumstance. I know how to plan my life and direct my path because I recognize the Infinite Wisdom is doing this for me by doing it through me. There is no uncertainty nor confusion in my life. The Divine Spirit always knows what to do; therefore I am never without guidance. There is one Wisdom, one Intelligence, one Mind. I live and move and have my being in this One. My every act, thought and purpose is guided by this Wisdom.
