PONDER on THIS for Monday, March 17th, 2008 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“What if God told you today,”You can have anything you want, my child; just ask for it…” would you bother to ask for what you want, then? Incidentally, that is exactly how it works. “Ask and ye shall receive.” I know this to be true, I use it, and I truly feel compassion for those who, without even trying something, can be convinced that it won’t work, or that it isn’t valid. Prayer works. And in case you can not hear it, you are indeed being asked to make a wish.

If you were extremely ill, would you spend five minutes, three times each day, saying affirmations simply because you read in a book that thousands of people have created their own cures in this way? Or, would you just go to the doctor and let your health ride on his faith and know-how alone? So many people will allow their skepticism to stand between them and their desires, or the answers to their prayers.

Why not try it now? If you have some chronic pain or illness, or if there is something that you truly want out of life, create an affirmation and start saying it for several minutes when you wake-up, while taking a break in the middle of the day, and before going to sleep at night. You probably wouldn’t be surprised at how many people don’t even have faith enough to “waste” fifteen minutes of their day asking God for what they want.

Don’t just try to do it one day and then give up; that is not faith.”
