What do you believe? Not intellectually, but in action. Thinking or saying something does not make it so. Only by our actions, our demonstrations in truth, do we show all what we really believe. Is the man who speaks of, espouses honesty an honest man if his actions are dishonest? Those who preach peace of mind but are the first to be offended at trifles, what aspect of living are they demonstrating? The road less traveled, Living on the Spiritual Basis, is not for the faint of heart. It requires all of us, complete commitment, body and soul to be successful. Fortunately God knows our fear and weakness, smoothing the way for us by asking us to place the burden on Him, to trust Him to carry us to freedom. What is required of us is to keep our eyes on Him; even as the world seemingly spins out of control around us, walking the way we talk in faith, with no regard for the chattering voices constantly trying to pull us from the path.
By trust and belief in a Power Greater than Ourselves, Our Father, we are promised freedom. By standing in faith, refusing fears ever clawing fingers, we demonstrate over negative conditions. What do you believe, really? “Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). What are you asking for? On what doors are you knocking? “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:8). The universe responds to our actions, for good and ill. The gifts of heaven are ours for the taking if we will only truly step out in faith, trust in God rather than our finite selves and live as the children of God, heirs to Our Father’s kingdom.
