19 Feb 2015 Comments Off on W-50: I am sustained by the Love of God.
Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)
Anyone who is weary of the world understands the line, “Put not your faith in illusions. They will fail you.” Withdrawing faith in illusions does not result in cynicism. Actually, it is our release from the nightmare of the world. It is God’s wake-up call penetrating the coma-state the ego has established.
Lesson 50 reminds us where to place our faith. Placing our faith in God sustains us. Choosing to remember that we are sustained by the Love of God is an act of faith. From this faith comes the realization that my brothers are my saviors and vice versa.
I am released by the Son of God. And you are released by the Son of God. As we recognize this, we become each others’ miracle workers. Putting our faith in the Love of God proves to be the nswer to every problem. Jesus says, “It is a declaration of release from idols. It is your acknowledgment of the truth about yourself.”
Choosing to be sustained by the Love of God is choosing to “allow peace to flow over you like a blanket of protection and surety.” Yes, I choose to know that I am sustained by the Love of God. What else could be better?
I am sustained by the Love of God.
Here is the answer to every problem that will confront you, today and tomorrow and throughout time. In this world, you believe you are sustained by everything but God. Your faith is placed in the most trivial and insane symbols; pills, money, “protective” clothing, influence, prestige, being liked, knowing the “right” people, and an endless list of forms of nothingness that you endow with magical powers.
All these things are your replacements for the Love of God. All these things are cherished to ensure a body identification. They are songs of praise to the ego. Do not put your faith in the worthless. It will not sustain you.
Only the Love of God will protect you in all circumstances. It will lift you out of every trial, and raise you high above all the perceived dangers of this world into a climate of perfect peace and safety. It will transport you into a state of mind that nothing can threaten, nothing can disturb, and where nothing can intrude upon the eternal calm of the Son of God.
Put not your faith into illusions. They will fail you. Put all your faith in the Love of God within you; eternal, changeless and forever unfailing. This is the answer to whatever confronts you today. Through the Love of God within you, you can resolve all seeming difficulties without effort and in sure confidence. Tell yourself this often today. It is a declaration of release from the belief in idols. It is your acknowledgment of the truth about yourself.
For ten minutes, twice today, morning and evening, let the idea for today sink deep into your consciousness. Repeat it, think about it, let related thoughts come to help you recognize its truth, and allow peace to flow over you like a blanket of protection and surety. Let no idle and foolish thoughts enter to disturb the holy mind of the Son of God. Such is the Kingdom of Heaven. Such is the resting place where your Father has placed you forever.
