See yourself through God’s eyes

How do you see yourself? As the spiritual image and likeness of infinite Spirit? As unlimited, beautiful, flawless, and perfect? If you see yourself as anything less, than take a look at yourself through God’s eyes!

You are of purer eyes than to behold evil…Habakkuk 1:13

When we start with our Creator — infinite, spiritual, and perfect — then it is natural for us to express God’s likeness.

We don’t need to allow ourselves to see anything less than the whole, talented, valuable, beloved, and free child of God.

When we start with our Source, we find a direct route to knowing our spiritual identity.

So what do we do with those negative messages coming to us? The Bible tells us of the supreme power and authority of good in our consciousness.

…those [thoughts] who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those [thoughts] who contend with you,but you shall not find them; those [thoughts] who war against you shall be as nothing at all. Isaiah 41:11,12

When we think of this passage in terms of thoughts, we see that any self-doubt, insecurity, fear, or lack — will be as nothing. We do not have to accept the negative messages coming to our consciousness. We can stand “porter at the door of thought”1 and allow only goodness to be manifested in our human consciousness and experience. When we awaken to our spiritually identity, moment by moment, it is like turning on a light and the darkness flees.

Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand…For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Do not fear, I will help you.” Isaiah 41:10, 13

God is helping us to know the truth about ourselves. With God on our side, it doesn’t have to be hard. We can shut out the unhealthy and negative thoughts because they do not have validity or authority in God’s kingdom.

You don’t have to believe the negative voices in your head. They will NEVER be true. You are the loved and blessed child of a good, God. You will never be anything less. Put that limited picture of you behind you. See yourself through God’s eyes today.

Thought of the day

I love to pray with these healing words from this beautiful hymn by Peter B. Allen . . .

You are God’s purpose,
His great design.
Beautiful, blameless,
His child divine.
Holding your thought to the good and the true,
Spirit will form you anew.
Rise up and walk!
God made you free, born of His liberty.
Carefree and strong,
you are His song,
perfect for all to see.

Peter B Allen, Rise Up, Christian Science Hymn 453:1

Such power comes to our consciousness when we claim, accept and live these ideas!

He provides everything we need

We’ve all been there. I want this or I want that. The relentless wants and woes that come with humans.

How can we resist the pull of materialism to feeling God’s perfect grace moving in us and providing everything we need?

bridge-896027_960_720I’ve had times when I KNOW God is leading and guiding me. I don’t doubt it because I know with every fiber of my being that it is right — that Love is leading me. And it works out great, so much better than I could have planned.

Perfect peace. Assurance. Divine love and care. That’s what God’s leading feels like.

So, how do we feel that? How do we attain a recognition of the divine presence and direction on a more consistent basis?

We can start by understanding God has already created perfection. We aren’t mini creators doing His work for Him.

His work is done, and we have only to avail ourselves of God’s rule in order to receive His blessing…
heart-947440_960_720Avail ourselves of God’s rule — God’s law of harmonious action guiding and governing everyone’s lives. The impartial love of God for ALL!

Only one law, one rule: God’s law of infinite supply, abundance, happiness, love and joy for everyone, everywhere. No one is outside of it.

As we see that God’s infinite love and goodness is there for all humanity (Jesus’ parables remind us that we are all neighbors) we see that it is present for us, too, and we can then claim it and experience it.

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
