Illusions

Was reading about the famous magician, David Copperfield, who years ago tricked his audience to believe he could make the Statue of Liberty disappear and  someone was explaining how that had happened.  There were many distractions of the seats gradually turning, the very loud music and other theatricals.  There was definitely an explanation.  It is always about the distractions, whether they be physical, financial scares, relationship problem, etc.  When our focus is on God/Good, all other fades away.  Psalms 139:14 reads “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

This can never be understood if  we concentrate on the illusion!

“What Cannot God Do?”

This morning as I was praying and pondering the above question, very subtly the thought appeared that a relationship challenge I had some concern about appeared as the very thing that perhaps God couldn’t do.  Immediately following a slight physical problem had appeared and I realized that I was listening to the carnal mind the Bible refers to as enmity against God.  My faith is very strong and I know that having doubt is denying the Christ.  Once again, I was reminded this is never about “recovery” but “discovery” of our true spiritual nature.

Psalms 139:14 states “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”  Spiritual man is made in the image and likeness of God and cannot possess error.  Praying from that standpoint I see more clearly and realize completely the answer to the question “What cannot God do?” and know that it is nothing because with God, all things are possible!

Loving Myself

Today as I was giving thanks for me, humbly and with no pride, I remembered the scripture in Psalms 139:14, which reads ” I will give thanks to You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are your works, and my soul knows it very well.”  Today, I will fast from criticizing myself and work on seeing only what God sees about me.  When I really love myself, I can certainly love others more.
