“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.”
I’m going to share a technique with you that changed my life several decades ago. I was taught by a wise spiritual teacher to pronounce everything in my life “as good.”
I argued with this teacher, protesting that everything in my life wasn’t good. That teacher said, “Try it, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.”
When I first started to do this, I was criticized by others for my “Pollyanna” attitude. I was criticized for not looking at things realistically. I came to realize, that always looking at things negatively was NOT a realistic attitude. Over time, the same people that used to criticize me saw such a change in me that they wanted what I had obtained.
In my 40 years of ministry, I have been amazed at how blind people are to the good in their lives. The good always overwhelms the bad. If you cannot believe that, then you need this exercise.
I have seen this exercise eliminate depression in people that did not have chemical imbalance, but that had been focusing exclusively on the bad things in their lives.
Pronounce every personal experience as good, and of God, and by that mental attitude you will call forth only good in your life. What seemed bad will disappear, and only the good will remain.
By the act of pronouncing every experience good, you can transform your life and your thinking. Such a pronouncement is an expression of faith in God and absolute goodness, and as you put your faith in this goodness you will see it coming into manifestation in every aspect of your life.
You will see good in yourself and in all others, the good that was there all along. Where before, you were focusing on the bad, now you have eyes to see the good that was invisible to you. You see beyond appearances as Jesus told you to. You see beyond appearances to the power of God at work. You become more aware of, and in tune with, the harmony of the universe.
Your mental attitude of pronouncing every personal experience as good has a healing effect on both your mind and your body. Your health improves, and you feel harmonious and at peace within yourself. Your human relations will be good because you are pronouncing all relationships as good. Others will feel the effect of your faith in the good of everyone and everything.
POSITIVE DAILY PRAYER:
Today, I am walking in the light of God’s goodness. In my mind’s eye, I see myself as walking along the path of continuous good. I see my life as taking a straight and true course, one blessed by the continuous good of God. I see myself, and all who share my life, as walking together in harmony. I am working in the light of the goodness of God. I see myself as accomplishing with speed and spring of spirit doing the good work that is mine to do this day. Whatever the task, I see it as an opportunity. I see the light of God’s good shining in and through me, and within all that I work with, making the time that we spend together a time of wondrous good. I see good in all my co-workers and in my company. I am filled with new understanding and satisfaction.
Today I choose to live in the light of God’s good. What a wonderfully glorious revelation it is to know that the good of God is an eternal part of me. I am never in darkness; always I am one with good. I am one with good that never diminishes. I decree in the name of Jesus Christ my pronouncement of my life as good. I am walking, working, living in the continuous good of God.
Thank You, God!
