Prosperity’s Ten Commandments

Thou Shalt Not Speak the Word of Lack or Limitationapples

Words have power!  Words have the power to lift us up or tear us down.  Words can mislead us or they can set our feet upon the path to which God has called us, even as Paul said:

…but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,  I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.*

What does it really cost us to use words filled with light and potentiality, opening up worlds of possibility beyond our wildest dreams?  If we are honest with ourselves, we know the heavy burden we bear when negativity weighs down our spirit.  Does it really cost us so much to choose the path of life and light?

Jesus said: “By your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”  When we have the idea of omnipresent Spirit as our unlimited source of supply, we are inspired to make mental images of the fulfillment of our need according to God’s goodwill, in spite of all appearances. Holding fast to these mental images, we speak only words of faith, hope, courage, and confident expectation of good.**

If we really want to transform our lives into the image and likeness of God, then we must begin the journey by making a major shift in how we perceive ourselves from a lost soul to a child of God.  As we consciously choose to fulfill our divine potentiality as the sons and daughters of the Most High, we shift our language from the negative to the positive, from:

I am sick and tired of feeling this lousy!

to

I am a child of God, I do not inherit sin, sickness or disease!  I am a work in progress, unfolding in Divine Order.

Consider this: what do I gain from sitting alone in a dark room reminding myself over and over and over just how miserable I am?  A brief bout of depression or illness may gain us sympathy, but no one is comfortable in the presence of an endless litany of misery.

Thou Shalt Let Go & Let God

It is entirely human to long for instant gratification, particularly when we are still trying to convince ourselves that we are a child of God, joint heirs with Christ and the light of God shining in the world.  And it is especially challenging to accept that once we have prayed and worked toward our highest good, one thing is still required: that we let go and let go fulfill the law in us and through us.

We are told in Genesis that God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh day from all His labors.  Creation is not an event. Creation is a process.  God created first in Mind and then in manifestation.  But at that point, He ‘stepped back’ and allowed the process to unfold.

The true Sabbath is that state of spiritual attainment where man ceases from all personal effort and all belief in his own works, and rests in consciousness that “the Father abiding in me doeth His works.”***

I seek clarity in defining my spiritual journey through prayer and meditation.  I talk to God in my prayers, I listen, and then I meditate as I open myself, heart and soul, to the wisdom and guidance of  God.  I do not have to do it all by myself.  I begin, daily, to speak and affirm the word of truth as I understand it, I do that which is mine to do, and then I let go.

We need to learn our part lies in acknowledging God’s presence, accepting of Him the good we desire, doing whatever is logically required of us to further this desire, and then letting God do the rest through already established Law.**
