THE first four words of the
Bible are in the beginning, God. This fact is very
significant because it indicates that God must be the
beginning of anything worth while. Here it begins the Bible,
and the text goes on to deal with the creation of the
universe, showing that God, of course, is the real beginning
of all things. If you take this thought in the
beginning, God, and make it the keynote of your whole life,
you have found the secret of success. If you make this
keynote of any particular
enterprise, that enterprise must and will be successful.
The trouble with so many people is that the actual keynote
of their lives is in the beginning, me. They are not always
aware of this. As a rule they do not even suspect it;
but the fact remains. The real cause for the inharmony
in the world is that so many individuals, groups, and
nations, think in terms of in the beginning, me. Working
from yourself as the center can only bring
discouragement, depression, and failure. Working from God
as the center, not nominally but actually, must bring
success, for God is Creative Life. The Bible says, "I
am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end"-the First and
the Last. This means that where God is the beginning you
will find He is also the end, that your demonstration will
be complete, perfect, and final.

"I have conscious Divine
Intelligence. I individualize Omniscience.
I have direct
knowledge of Truth. I have perfect intuition. I have spiritual
perception. I know."
The whole object of spiritual
treatment is to increase your realization of the truth
which you already accept; namely, that God can and will protect
you from all harm, and that fear and error have no power when
you yourself do not give it to them. Realization means to make
God absolutely real to yourself as a subconscious conviction.
we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest
appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John F. Kennedy
Emmet Fox was
always pointing out how the tremendous power of God could be
released by the simple acts of prayer. Ease of operation that
accomplished miracles was a thing that always fascinated him.
He sometimes mentioned when he had been to his safe deposit box
at the bank how gently the powerful, heavy door of the vault
opened, and how the guard pointed out the tremendous weight of
the door, yet when unlocked it could move by the slightest touch
of a finger. God did not need to be besieged violently, or
hammered at. "Pray gently," he would say. Gentleness in prayer
was a point he stressed, after sincerity and wholeheartedness.
He said to one student, "speak to God as gently as you would
paint a picture on a cob web."
If there is a high road to
demonstration, it is through praise and Thankgiving.
Giving thanks for the good you expect
from your prayer is really another indication
of your faith. Jesus terminates the
magnificent "Lord's Prayer" with praise to God
- "For Thine is the Kingdom, and the
Power and the Glory."
Emmet Fox (From his essay Spiritual
Be thankful for what you have; youíll end up having more. If you
concentrate on what you donít have, you will never, ever have
Prayer of Gratitude ~ Joseph Murphy
I give thanks sincerely and humbly
for all the goodness, truth, and beauty which
flow through me. I. have a grateful,
uplifted heart for all the good that has come
to me in mind, body, and affairs. I
radiate love and goodwill to all mankind. I
lift them up in my thought and
feeling. I always show my gratitude and give thanks
for all my blessings. The grateful
heart brings my mind and heart in intimate union
with the creative Power of the
Cosmos. My thankful and exalted state of mind leads
me along the ways by which all good
things come. "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise: Be
thankful unto him, and bless his name."
For what I have received may the Lord make me truly thankful.
And more truly for what I have not received.
You can have true success and happiness in life if
you consistently put these truths into practice in your daily
living. It is your God - given duty to Stake Your Claim to peace,
poise, power, prosperity and health - and God expects you to be
satisfied with nothing less. (Herman Wolhorn)

Dr. Fox: It is with deep appreciation that I write this
letter. Thank you for all the help you have given me by way of
spiritual treatments for failing eye sight. A recent medical
examination confirms that I will not lose my vision and my sight
has actually improved. I am so blessed to have had your personal
prayers. God bless you Dr. Fox for affirming the truth with me,
and for giving me the gift to see clearly again." Ernest Wagner
