Did you realize that you are in the very best possible place you could ever be right now?
Daniel, when thrown into the lion’s den, could have been tempted to think that he was in a very bad place. But he didn’t. He knew better. He knew that God’s presence was the only place he ever occupied. And he knew he was 100% safe in God’s presence. And he was. There was no safer place to be than where he already was—consciously in God’s presence.
Jesus could have been tempted to believe he was in a very bad place when nailed to the cross. But he didn’t. His sense of place was not physical, but spiritual. He knew he was living in God, and all was well in God. And it was. He was soon brought down off that cross, laid in a place of peace and quiet, and soon risen to show the world that his trust in God was the wisest position he could have ever taken. He came out of that trial triumphant, proving there was no better place for him to be than where he already was—consciously with God.
You too, are in the best possible place you could ever be right now—with God, in Mind, where there are no obstacles to progress, no lack to fear, and no unsolved problem.
You have everything you need this moment, from Mind, to know what to do next, what step to take that is progressive, what thought to think that heals, what blessing of Love to embrace to be fearless and move on unimpeded. You are fully provided for, fully loved, fully cared for, watched over and sustained. You do not lack. You have everything that is of substance and value, and all because you live in the presence of God and reflect God’s fullness this moment and every moment.
You don’t have to be in a different place than where you are to listen for God’s direction, to know what is true, to let go of what is false, and to progress without bounds.
Let go of any temptation to believe that if only you were in a better material place, things would be better. This is a drag on your progress. The primary need is not physical, but metaphysical. Go spiritual! Think and live in Spirit where there are no bounds on the place you occupy.
The best place to be is always with God, and that’s a place that is always yours to enjoy every moment, every day, every time.
Stay in the right place spiritually, and the right place humanly will work out.
“I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me”
Psalm 139:7-10, NLT.
