The Law of Attraction – Living by Faith

The Law of Attraction – Living by Faith

Claiming Your Inheritance

The following is an excerpt from “How to Attract Prosperity” by Orison Swett Marden.

If you are a subscriber, you already received the complete chapter free.

I like to randomly read parts of this book…

and when I did today, the following stood out:

“Mental laws are clear and simple. We know that the fear thought attracts more fear, the worry thought more worry, the anxious thought more anxiety, the hatred thought more hatred, the jealous thought more jealousy, and the poverty thought more poverty. This is the law of attraction. Like every other law, it is unalterable.

The poverty disease can be cured only by its antidote——the prosperity thought. You carry within you this antidote to the poison of poverty, of lack, of pinching, dwarfing limitation. Use it, and cure yourself. The prosperity thought will kill the poverty germ.

Keep your supply pipes open between yourself and the infinite source of all supply. Don’t pinch them by doubt, don’t cut off the supply by limiting, pinching, poverty, lack thought.

Keep your supply pipes wide open by the consciousness of your oneness with God, your connection with the All Supply.

Abundance follows a law as exact as that of the law of mathematics. If we obey it we get the flow. If we pinch it, strangle it, we cut off the supply.

Suppose a youth who had decided to study medicine and become a doctor should say to himself: “I cannot picture myself as a success because I don’t know anything about what may come to me. Perhaps I haven’t the qualifications that make a successful physician. I may never become one. I may be a failure. I doubt if I am fitted for it, but I’ll try, anyway.”

Do you think such a timid, doubting, negative attitude would ever carry anyone to the success goal? Of course it wouldn’t.

The young medical student who is going to succeed is the one who pictures himself constantly as a successful physician, sees himself in a fine office, with a lucrative practice, climbing to the top of his profession. He is constantly visualizing himself as a successful physician.

Now, the same rule applies to the poor man who wants to become prosperous. He must picture himself as prosperous, he must obey the law of opulence by holding the ideal of opulence in his mind, and he must saturate himself with the prosperity thought, the thought of abundance.

If you wish to cure yourself of the poverty disease you should begin by giving yourself prosperity treatments something like this:

Say to yourself:

If I am God’s child I have inherited all the good things of the universe. I am heir to all supply, to the all-good. Poverty cannot touch the reality of me any more than disease can, for the reality of me is health. Health is the everlasting fact, and disease, sickness, is merely the absence of the reality. Poverty is not my normal condition. There can be no lack, no poverty for God’s image. ‘All that my Father hath is mine.’”

Repeat daily the twenty-third psalm:

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters,” etc.

Follow this during the day with frequent assertions of your kinship with the Creator of all the universe.

Commit these lines by Ella Wheeler Wilcox to memory, and frequently say them to yourself, vigorously, and with the force of absolute conviction:

“I am success.
Though hungry, cold, ill-clad,
I wander for a while, I smile and say:
‘It is but for a time—I shall be glad
Tomorrow, for good fortune comes my way.
God is my Father, He has wealth untold;
His wealth is mine, health, happiness and gold.’”

All the good things you need are yours by inheritance. Claim them, expect them, work for them, believe they are already yours, and you will realize them in your life.

If you continually assert your kinship with God your Father, to whom all things belong, and send out the vigorous thought of abundance, a generous supply of all you need—which is your birthright—poverty cannot hold you its slave.”  — Orison Swett Marden

As Christian believers we are to live by faith, because God’s Word says so.

“The just shall live by faith.” — Romans 1:17

Living by faith means believing and obeying the Word of God. We have to think, speak, meditate, and act on God’s Word daily. There may be many books that inform, encourage, and inspire us, but there is only One Book that is full of Divine Living Power…

Have you opened your Bible yet today and let the Word of God speak to you?

May God’s Word come alive in your life this year like never before and leave a trail of growing prosperity everywhere you go!

Be blessed to be a blessing!

Cheers,
Brenda

P.S. Feel free to share experiences of your faith attracting your needed supply…
