Government Is On God’s Shoulder
Affirm: There is one omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient Presence in this universe. It is God. It is Good. It is the authority in my life.
Scripture: ‘Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God. The things that are God’s.’ Luke 20:25 (NRSV)
Dear Prosperity Partners and Friends,
I give thanks for you and pray that all is well for you and persons everywhere. We live and have our being in God’s radiant presence that abides and influences all that concerns us.
On Sunday, April 3, Dr. Jean Beaumont’s lesson, The Government Is On God’s Shoulder, reminded us that God, alone, is in charge. The earthly kingdoms are the realm of the Caesar’s of the world. While the Spiritual Kingdom is God’s realm or domain. It is eternal and everlasting. It was and will be when earth’s kingdoms pass away. Therefore, we have a choice to either hang our sense of identity on the temporary kingdom of earth and its powers or choose to identity with God’s Spirit Kingdom and its various attributes, gifts, and realities. Jesus’ invitation to us to follow him as he teaches that the Government is Upon God’s Shoulder.
- The Government is upon God’s Shoulder.
Jesus’ response to religious leaders to give Caesar what is due to him (in the form of taxes) demonstrates an invisible act of power that teaches us how to be spiritual beings in a material world, ever awake to our spiritual purpose.
The Earth School can enhance our spiritual growth as we contribute to the well being of others. We are here to exercise our power to heal, to help others and to make a positive difference in the world.
- Practice Communion with God.
In communion with God, we purify our mind and heart and renew our strength. We blend our mind with the Father-Mind and there is harmonizing of every aspect of consciousness. In gratitude for the Upper Room experience, we can’t help but celebrate God’s presence with praise and thanksgiving as we live with Christ at the centre of our lives.
- Remain true to the Divinity of your Being.
We are on earth to bear witness to the truth—the truth of our Divinity! In our day to today living, we tend to forget who we are, as spiritual beings. We play by earth’s Rule Book. It is our choice to remember who and whose we are as often as possible so that we may be ever mindful that God’s Kingdom is ‘not of this world’, as Jesus says. (John 18:36) ‘My mind is stayed on Thee, and I rest in Thy peace and power.’ Charles Fillmore
Let’s pray: God, thank You for creating me in Your image and likeness. As I keep my mind centered on this Truth, I am supplied beyond measure and blessed in all ways. Putting my trust in God, alone, all things are accomplished in orderly and loving ways just as God promised. To God be the glory now and always. Amen.
