July 19 – Marvelous Happenings
Our Lord, with hearts full of joy we thank Thee for Thy marvelous blessings showered on us today and every day.
I am beside you. Follow in all things My Guiding. Marvels beyond all your imaginings are unfolding. I am your Guide. Joy in that thought. Your Guide and your Friend.
Remember that to Me a miracle is only a natural happening. To My disciples, to My chosen, a miracle is only a natural happening. But it is a natural happening operative through spiritual forces, and therefore the man who works and understands through the senses only, regards it as something contrary to Nature.
Remember too that the natural man is at enmity with God. Realize fully, and pray to realize more and more fully, that there is no wonder too marvelous to be with you an everyday happening, if you are guided and strengthened by Me.
My children, the children of My Kingdom are a peculiar people, set apart, different hopes, and aspirations, and motives, and sense of reward.
You see a marvelous happening (as that today), happening so easily, so simply, so free from all other agency, and you wonder.
My children, listen, this has not happened easily and simply. It has been achieved by hours, days, months of weariness and heartache battled against and overcome, by a steadfast, unflinching desire to conquer self, and to do My Will and live My teachings.
The frets and the worries and the scorn patiently borne mean spiritual Power acquired, operating marvelously.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
