Spiritual Power

"HE whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him." So said John the Baptist. How wonderful it is to think of spiritual power as ever present, ever available, unlimited! How wonderful it is to know that man ever reflects this unlimited power! As we realize this truth we become conscious of our God-given strength and dominion. We begin to understand in "a measure what the great Master felt when he said to the storm, "Peace, be still," and when he stopped the funeral procession, touched the bier, and said, "Young man, I say unto thee, Arise."

The realization that man is conscious of spiritual power as ever present, ever available, and inexhaustible, and of oneself as always reflecting it, is a wonderful protection from aggressive mental suggestion. It enables us to see the nothingness of malice and ignorance. It causes us to be conscious of Mind as it is—infinite Spirit. It enables us to know that all there is, by way of creation, is the universe of Love, the universe of Truth, and that there is only one kind of man, who has the right or spiritual concept of everything, and is therefore incapable of being deceived by evil. Understanding of this fact causes us to know Life as it is, namely, infinite good, and to know that, consequently, there can be nothing apart from good. It enables us to know and prove that harmony alone is real.

Our realization of the ever-presence of spiritual power keeps us constantly refreshed and uplifted. It causes us to be divinely inspired. Because God gives us the spirit of truth without measure, we are able to realize the unlimited nature of spiritual power, and therefore we are capable of speaking the Word of God with authority —giving to those who are in trouble just what they need.
