The power of one

“But I’m only one person.” How many of us have said this when faced with a political or social situation that seems to need remedying. The unlikelihood of success, the fear of being thought foolish, as perhaps too old, uneducated, or not mentally quick enough—all of these would argue against challenging an injustice, wrongdoing, or even the “way we have always done things.” 

These arguments of the carnal mind—a material mentality that opposes itself to God—would keep individuals fixated on material limitations instead of seeing and claiming their God-empowered ability to insist on freedom, justice, honesty, and truth. 

The conviction of unity with the one Mind makes it possible to overcome limitations, and challenge evil’s argument that “you can’t make a difference.”
