Affirmations for Living an Abundance Life

My higher good is in motion, and I expect its arrival momentarily.

The Christ within guides me in all I do.

I am blessed in many ways, and I am the blessing in many ways.

I give thanks for my Divine Potential to be healthy, wealthy and wise.

I give thanks for my inner power to create the life I desire to live.

My expectations are bold and hopeful.

My blessings are many; my regrets are short lived; my future is flush with great benefits.

In the prosperous circle of light, as I give so shall I receive.

I now manifest in my life the good that is mine to have!

How do we know what scripture is the voice of God?

It tells us in the Bible that human beings were made in the image of God. That may very well be true; however, human beings have also invented a God in their image. If an ancient ruler governed the people with anger, punishment and wrath, it is most likely he projected those attributes onto God when overseeing and approving what would be written in scripture and what wouldn’t. At the same time, if a ruler was compassionate and benevolent, that became the character of God. So which ruler is right? Or perhaps they are both right leaving us with a volatile God that we have to tiptoe around lest we get struck down by lightening.

I don’t believe that God is a person perched on a throne somewhere in the far reaches of the universe looking down on our every move. I believe God is spirit; the life-force within us; the one and only power in the universe that is the creative energy behind all that exists. God is it all; the whole shebang; everywhere present. Scripture that is divinely inspired is totally supportive, compassionate and loving of the “whole”. Scripture that dips into inequalities, prejudices and divisive lines of demarcation is not sound thought, and therefore, I believe, not representative of the God spirit that is the essence of all life.
