Ask in Faith, Believing (James 1:5-18)

Richard Mathiason

If we lack wisdom, we are to come to the Source of all knowledge and we shall receive it. But how are we to ask? In faith, believing. A double-minded man gets nowhere. How true this is! GOD CAN GIVE US ONLY WHAT TAKE,  and since the taking is a mental act, WE CAN TAKE ONLY WHAT WE BELIEVE WE ALREADY HAVE! This is in accord with the teachings of Jesus: that when we pray, we must believe we already have the answer to our prayer.

Anything that is not of faith is sin, or a mistake, as we are told in another passage of this book of wisdom. Faith in God and in ourselves should beconsciously generated. All trouble comes form disbelief in the Universe, followed by wrong acts, which are the result of disbelief and ignorance of the Law of Good, which is a Law of Liberty. 

The lesson is simple enough enough. When we ask for anything, we are to believe that we have it, but we are to ask for that which is in unity with life. This unity includes health, happiness and success. These are native to the atmosphere of God and to the atmosphere of the inner man, which is Christ. Let us dislodge doubt, fear and unbelief and trust implicitly in Good. 

Ernest Holmes “Science of Mind” page 498 

Dear Father, Mother, God!
I know from deep within my soul that you are the One true source of everything.
That being said, we are all part of that everything and therefore we are a part of God.
We have been given an amazing gift and that is the opportunity to experience Life for God.
I also know that God takes care of us to the extent that we believe.
I now remove all doubt, fear and apprehension and know that as I speak my word, believing that it is done, God takes care of it.
I am so grateful to God for this Truth.
All I need do now is the let God do the rest and be steadfast in my Belief.
And So It IS!
