Weekly Bible Quote 129, School of Truth, read by Andre

Be strong in the Lord - (Eph. 6:10)
I do my share towards acquiring faith and God does the rest

Are you a timid person? Do you shrink from making new acquaintances and experiencing new conditions? If so, remember today's text and be strong in the Lord. His Spirit within you should give you the courage you need - but only if you have faith in it.

You may say that you have no faith and ask how you are to acquire it. The answer is, by behaving as if you have all the faith you need. Play the part of one who has absolute faith and see how it will help you. 'Assume the virtue if you have it not,' says Shakespeare, and it is good advice. Modern psychologists tell us the same thing.

Another thing you can do is to make an affirmation such as: My perfect faith casts out all fear. In your true being you are Spirit, and Spirit is perfect, so your faith must also be perfect. Therefore in the quoted words you are making a statement of Truth. Try to accept it as such and bring all Power into action.

We must be fearless and strong if life is to be the great adventure it should be.
