CIMS DAILY LESSON
LESSON FORTY-SEVENTRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face. The Guidance is in normal type In His Guidance, He has asked Me to capitalize the pronouns You and We as an acknowledgement of the Divinity of All of Us, an acknowledgement of Equality, an expression of His Love and respect for You. When You see the word ‘YOU’ capitalized in the Guidance, know that He is not just speaking to YOU, He is honoring YOU.
God is the Strength in which I trust.
His Power, therefore, must be My own. He is My only Source And not just Mine but Every One’s. His Light illuminates the sun and stars and shines throughout the galaxies as Love, radiating everywhere. With It, I did heal the sick, raise the dead, feed the multitudes and refuse to stay dead for long Myself.
As the children’s song goes: There can be no spot where God is not. Thus His Son is ever safe and cherished, and You are His Son.
Truth for Every One.
1 If you are trusting your own strength, you have every reason to be apprehensive, anxious, and fearful. – And the ego counsels You to be so. Don’t be foolish, it insists! Trust in a God You cannot see? What complete nonsense! Every One You know believes in dying. Don’t be different. Just follow the crowd! Be a good lemming! All things pass away! Trust God? That’s crazy! … And the ego lies. – What can you predict or control? What is there in you that can be counted on? What would give you the ability to be aware of all the facets of any problem and to resolve them in such a way that only good can come of it? These words are indeed a Soul-felt prayer for the proper results of Guidance: “only Good can come of it”. What is there in you that gives you the recognition of the right solution and the guarantee that it will be accomplished?
God can and will do all these things for You, as You are willing. This is the purpose of the Holy Spirit, Your Real Mind that trusts God completely. It’s not foreign, but natural to You. You’ve just forgotten. Let Me re-Mind You.
2 Of yourself, you can do none of these things. To believe that you can is to put your trust where trust is unwarranted and to justify fear, anxiety, depression, anger, and sorrow. Who can put his faith in weakness and feel safe? Yet who can put his faith in strength and feel weak? God is the only Source of strength there is. (All else is but the puny ego.)
3 God is your safety in every circumstance. His Voice speaks for Him in all situations and in every aspect of all situations, telling you exactly what to do to call upon His strength and His protection. There are no exceptions because God has no exceptions. There are no exceptions to this rule, and the Son of God is surely not a fool. And the Voice Which speaks for Him thinks as He does.
See how You are Loved. See how safe You are!
4 Today we will try to reach past your own weakness to the Source of real strength. Four five-minute practice periods are necessary today, and longer and more frequent ones are urged. Close your eyes and begin as usual by repeating today’s idea. Then spend a minute or two in searching for situations in your life which you have invested with fear, dismissing each one by telling yourself,
5 God is the Strength in which I trust.
His Strength is Here and Now, available at every instant. Reach out and feel this great loving Power.
6 Now try to slip past all concerns related to your own sense of inadequacy. It is obvious that any situation that causes you concern is associated with feelings of inadequacy, since otherwise you would believe that you could deal with the situation successfully. It is not by trusting yourself that you will gain confidence. But the strength of God in you is successful in all things.
The Holy Spirit is God’s Strength as You.
7 The recognition of your own frailty is a necessary step in the correction of your errors, but it is hardly a sufficient one in giving you the confidence which you need and to which you are entitled. You must also gain an awareness that your confidence in your real strength is fully justified in every respect and in all circumstances.
This Lesson can return Your Self to You, as You allow It.
8 In the latter phase of the practice period, try to reach down into your mind to a place of real safety. You will recognize that you have reached it if you feel a deep peace, however briefly. Let go all the trivial things that churn and bubble on the surface of your mind, and reach down and below them to the Kingdom of Heaven. There is a place in you where there is perfect peace. There is a place in you where nothing is impossible. There is a place in you where the strength of God abides.
God is Here for You. God is Now for You.
9 Repeat the idea for today often. Use it as your answer to any disturbance. Remember that peace is your right because you are giving your trust to the strength of God.
Feel His Peace and Joy, and let Them be Yours. For They really are.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
