Cultivating an assurance of God’s care

rowing-898008_960_720
Sometimes, I feel like I must have it all figured out in order to be able to help someone or even to take a step forward in my life. But it is really God, the divine Source, who is providing the answers and healing for me and all.

God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

It’s so comforting to know that God, divine Spirit, is the source of our strength and our supply. We have strength, supply, order, harmony, beauty and goodness because we reflect God. After all, Jesus said that he couldn’t do anything without God (John 5:30).
Every human thought must turn instinctively to the divine Mind as its sole centre and intelligence.

God is the Source of intelligence. God is the Source of good ideas and action. God is the Source of love and compassion. In other words, can we do anything without Him/Her? If you need a creative solution for a project, God provides it. If you need a resolution and harmony in a relationship, God will provide it. God, divine Mind, will provide everything we need, no matter how big or small. Here are 6 ways to cultivate your innate assurance of God’s care and they make all the difference:

  • Turn to God in prayer (multiple times each day)
  • Get acquainted with God’s Word, and other inspiring texts, through a daily study of them
  • Listen for the still small voice of divine intuition leading you
  • Have an open and receptive heart to new ideas
  • Have patience 🙂
  • Live love

Be still, and know that I am God!

God fills the gaps

During my morning prayer, I was contemplating some future plans. I became increasingly aware that God was filling the gaps or space of my plan.  My human vision of things could only take me so far. Psalm 116 says, “the Lord has dealt bountifully with you”.  This tells me that love, peace, health, harmony and blessings are filling the parts that I can’t foresee.

 

Though human outlines or plans can be helpful, they are in and of themselves limited.  Isn’t it wonderful to know that God’s will for us is bounty? God has abundance, health, grace, companionship, and love planned for each of us. And this isn’t just a future plan that God has, but is actually His will that He is enforcing right now.

 

You know the London saying “mind the gap”; how about saying “God fills the gaps”? I like to make acronyms as a way to help me to see concepts more spiritually. I’ve been thinking about “G.A.P.” as “God’s Apparent Provision”.  What is an acronym that you came up with for “gap” or some other concept?

 

We can recognize God’s spiritual substance – His provision of health, happiness, freedom and abundance, filling all space so there really are no gaps!

 

So just remember while our human outlines and goals have all sorts of unforeseen circumstances, God is like the Rain-X (glass treatment) of our lives – He fills all the space in whatever human goal we may have. He foresees every need and circumstance; He gives us with relationships that mutually bless; His will is success and abundance for His creation; His love wraps up each individual and all.
