TODAY I PERMIT THE POWER GREATER THAN I AM TO FLOW INTO NEWNESS OF LIFE THROUGH EVERY THOUGHT AND ACTION
… I will lead them in paths that they have not known… Isaiah 42:16
Sometimes we are confronted with problems which we do not seem able to solve and right here is the place to prove to ourselves that there is an Intelligence which knows how to bring things to pass for us. In doing this we should shut everything else out of the mind and rest quietly for a few moments while we confidently affirm the Divine Presence and actually believe that it is guiding us. Now think of your problem and consciously take it into your thought, not as a problem, but as thought you were receiving the answer, as you meditate:
I am bringing all my problems to the altar of faith and I know that every true desire of my heart will be fulfilled through the power of love. My first desire is that all my thoughts and all my acts shall give joy and gladness to everyone around me. I wish the healing power of love to flow through me to everyone.
I believe that Divine Intelligence, which is the Mind of God, is guiding, guarding and directing my thoughts and acts. I believe that God already knows the answer to this problem; therefore I am letting go of the problem as though it were difficult, and I am listening to the answer, as though it were sure. The answer to this problem not only exists in the Mind of God; I affirm that it is in my mind now, that something in me does know what to do. I joyfully accept Divine guidance. I am open to new ideas, to new thoughts, new hopes and aspirations. That which so recently seemed a problem, no longer exists for the Mind of God, which knows the answer, is quietly flowing through my thought and feeling. A great peace and joy come over me as I accept this answer from the Giver of all life.
