DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR LIFE … WHAT YOU WILL EAT
Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.
Many are having a tough time making ends meet during this transition period. For this reason, I am posting an excerpt from my book A NEW AGE CHRISTIAN: My Spiritual Journey.
This story of Elijah and the widow is an example of how our present supply can be multiplied. I have experienced this in my own life; however, it is not something I can explain intellectually.
MEDITATION: The secret is focusing on your indwelling God (or I AM PRESENCE), instead of your external world and needs. Close your eyes and focus your attention on your heart area … visualize your heart as a lovely ethereal temple … know that you carry this holy place within you at all times. While sitting in your heart temple, know that as God’s Son or Daughter you are abundantly cared for in every way. You are never alone … your Guardian Angel and spirit guides hover around you … waiting to supply your every need.
We experience lack when we look to the outside world as our source of supply. Sure, we find supply within our environment, but the Source is our indwelling God. When we wait on a particular external event or source, we have turned our focus away from God. We do not know how God will supply, thus to pre-determine the means is to close the door to God’s Plan.
Meditate on Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:25-34. Our indwelling God knows our needs BEFORE we do and has already supplied them.
Meditate on the words of Jesus in Mark 11:23-24. The answer to our prayer is ALREADY DONE.
Meditate on the widow of Zarephath’s experience (excerpt below). In Hebrew, Zarephath means place of refinement, place of purification. Even though she and her son are on the verge of physical plane starvation, the widow chooses to share the last of her food with Elijah. In Hebrew, Elijah means Jehovah is God … metaphysically Elijah symbolizes the I AM Presence within each of us. The widow chooses to give her all to her I AM PRESENCE. As a result of her choice, she and her son never give out of food.
Our role is to LISTEN AND FOLLOW OUR INTUITIVE GUIDANCE. The widow did not sit down and wait on her supply. She followed her intuitive guidance—“share what you have.” She set about mixing the oil and meal … baking the bread … and giving a portion to Elijah.
The endless supply came as a result of her action—the following through on her intuitive guidance.
You and I live in Zarephath—a place of purification and refinement. We are learning to fulfill our role as co-creator with God.
A NEW AGE CHRISTIAN is no longer for sale. I have copies that I would like to give away. If you would like a copy, write me through my website and I will send you instructions. I will need your help with postage, which is determined by where you live. PRIORITY FLAT RATE = $4.95 in the USA, $16.95 international rate. 2-3 books will fit into one envelope for the same mailing price. Just let me know if you would like more than one copy. I wrote this book for Christians who want to know more, which is a characteristic of this point in time. I’ll give the books away until there are no more.
