I EXERCISE MY GOD-GIVEN DOMINION
They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
There is a God Power at the center of every man’s being, a Presence that knows neither, lack, limitation nor fear, sickness, disquiet nor imperfection. But because everyone is an individual he can build a wall of negative thought between himself and this perfection. The wall which keeps you from the greater good is built of mental blocks, cemented together by fear and unbelief, mixed in the mortar of negative experience.
Now you are to tear down this wall, to completely destroy it. The view which this wall obstructed is now seen it all its grandeur. The sun never really stopped shining and the River of Life forever flows. Every man’s experience is an attempt to merge his own being with this eternal river, not to the loss of his identity, but to the discovery of that self which has newer wholly left its heaven. Say:
I know that there is a Presence and a perfect Law irresistibly drawing into my experience everything which makes life happy and worthwhile.
The good that I receive is but the completion of a circle, the fulfillment of my desire for all.
I have placed my reliance in the Power, the Presence and the Perfection of God.
Therefore, I have dominion over all apparent evil.
I repudiate all its claims, cast out ever fear of, or belief in, that which is not good and exercise the dominion which by divine right belongs to me.
