In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Every day we contact worldly power in person or in reports in the press, on TV, in social media. And all the while there is a quiet power always present, always responding, always furthering the perfect will of God. It is Spirit that communicates with us through feeling, beyond thought and word.
Spirit empowered a teenage shepherd boy to overcome Goliath, a giant with the latest armor and highest military training. Spirit, moving through the channel of Jesus Christ, revealed sight to the blind; movement to the paralyzed; life to a dead and buried Lazarus.
Today, as then, that same Spirit is equally present in everyone. It has no limits; it is outside time; space is no obstacle. It waits for us to know it is the power over which there is no other power.
Worldly claims to power fade and dissolve as faith and trust ignite our attention and fill our awareness with the certainty of God’s loving presence and power. We give no instructions to Spirit to do this or that; we simply rest, knowing we are forever part of God and all is well.
