"Begin to possess"

"Begin to possess, that thou mayest inherit." Thus spake the God of Israel to His people and their great leader in the olden time; and it is still true that if we would possess our inheritance as children of the Most High, we must begin to assert our God-given dominion, casting out the enemy in all the various and subtle forms with which it strives for a foothold in our consciousness through our consciousness through our particualr environment. This calls for alertness.

Though gently forbearing with his disciples, the Master seemed to express a rebuke when he said, upon their failure to heal, "This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting," for it showed that those who would try to do his works must abstain from worldly thoughts, desires, and ambitions, and give themselves to constant communion with the Father. In this silent communication, inharmony's jarring notes are hushed, care slips away, the burden falls, the dark is light, the crooked straight, and over the pain-racked body are spread the healing wings. Thus we sit in heavenly places with Christ Jesus, with John and Peter and Paul, and all the good of all times, for Paul tells us of "the whole family in heaven and earth." Here we can be sure that all are in one accord.
