Day 25: God Is Life

You have to give that up and claim that the only life I have began with God,
for it is the life, which is God.
God is life.

God is the life of my being and of my body.
God is the life of my orchard and of my ranch.
God is the life in my garden.
And I know no other life. “I know no life divided,” says the hymn.
Only one life, and that life is God.
I don’t need any God power to preserve life,
for God power is life, and life is God power.
I don’t need any God power to heal disease.
What for? What can disease do?
It certainly can’t touch the life,
and I have no other life, nor have you nor he nor she.

I shall not fear any form or effect,
because I know that actually God made all that was made
and all that God made is good.
Why then should I fear any creature, any form, or effect?
If I can see it, hear it, taste it, touch it, or smell it,
I must not fear it,
for there is neither power of good nor of evil in it.

What a blessed revelation.
I must not love, hate, or fear anything
that I can see, hear, taste, touch, or smell.
I can enjoy the good of life.
I can use all that which is given to us for our use.
But I must not indulge love, hate, or fear.
For the power of good or evil is not in it.
All power is in God.

How To Heal, 1958, Joel S. Goldsmith
