“We shall obey and adore in proportion as we apprehend the divine nature and love Him understandingly, warring no more over the corporeality, but rejoicing in the affluence of our God.”
Which do you spend most of your time in prayer doing? “Warring over corporeality,” or “rejoicing in the affluence of God?”
The affluence of God is all the goodness of God. It is abundance, supply, peace, harmony, love, solutions and health.
Corporeality is the opposite of Spirit. It is material things, money, status, prestige, physicality, the body, mortality, time, opinion and human ego.
One way of “warring over corporeality,” is to be primarily concerned about material conditions and circumstances. It’s the prayer that struggles with the world, trying to change it, improve it, to have more of it, or to manage other people and get them to follow your will. It is in a constant struggle with mortal mind, as if in a competition to see who will win.
To rejoice in the affluence of God is to put on the Mind of Christ that sees unending good. It is a consciousness of Truth and Love, a spiritual view of reality that sees all the good things God is doing that makes Life a joy to live. It doesn’t see an enemy to struggle with, but blessings to accept and enjoy.
It’s like a dreamer wrestling with a bear in a dream. The dreamer thinks the wrestling is necessary. But it isn’t. There is no bear. The easier way to win against the bear is to wake up from the dream and accept safety. Wrestling with the bear is not necessary.
The same rule applies to demonstrating health and abundance. We don’t have to wrestle with “the bears” of mortal mind that argue for disease and lack. The easier path to success is to wake up from corporeality, and accept spirituality. In God, there is no lack, no disease, and no suffering.
Rejoice in God’s affluence today and live free! Skip any warring part mortal mind wants you to engage, and get right to the victory.
