Most people know that who they are is not a body, but a soul — an infinite, immortal being of God. You are an eternal being. You will live forever constantly aware of God and creation.
The great problem of life is the constant distraction that keeps us from being fully aware of our immortal existence and the power of our choices. Solve that and you can live empowered in the present moment with God making the right choices the rest of your life.
Within the pages of the Bible is the secret to divine living.
In John 14:21 Jesus reveals the secret with these words, "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest."
Here's the 120 Commandments of Jesus
Jesus reveals that it's not necessary for you to live a powerless life.
What you just read forces most people to seek the commandments of Jesus to maintain a faithful and cultivated life in His grace.
Furthermore, the negative inner dialog of defeat, hopelessness, and scarcity is not a natural condition. This point of view is dispersed by the Son of God through His word.
Do you know the difference between a divinely driven life and one that is not? The divinely driven life is inevitably guided by a frame of mind cultivated by God's word.
A mind developed in the meditation, repetition, and thought of the commandments of Jesus is highly tuned to the mechanics of creation, and it doesn't stop there. Additionally, support from God's spiritual forces inaccessible to most aides you at every turn.
Flowing with God's presence we constantly look forward to a positive future knowing our prime state with God is how we accomplish anything. That's how we constantly grow with the expectation of better prospects.
The secret of divine living has two great adversaries, time and age. Over the course of time, most people falter from their discipline to let the commandments of Jesus influence their inner life.
Age is the second adversary. Age has a way of eroding commitment and inspiration. As years progress most people lose hope and swiftly slide into old age.
History shows that constant mental and physical development are the pillars of long-lasting influence and power over life, and everyone is giving the choice.
If you realize that there is no end to growth and that you can daily set your mind to God's perfect laws you can grow indefinitely.
You never need to know how time and age destroys your dreams. You can keep growing into God's perfection every day.
Every moment you live is a moment of birth into greater realization.
Another lesson history teaches us is that our body wears out. The difference is that with divinely inspired thought our body reacts favorably with health and increased years.
Within you is a biochemical factory that produces a positive or negative physical atmosphere and it's run by the master of your mind. Think and feel positive with God's divinely inspired word and your mind produces healthy biochemical patterns in your body.
The original blueprint of health and inspired thought comes from God and your brain draws from God at a deep level when you think and meditate with the commandments of Jesus.
The word of God was not written in vain. When Jesus states that the presence of God increases in you if you keep His commandments you learn a powerful truths from heaven.
Here's the key principle that empowers the secret of a divinely empowered life.
Your mind has a natural tendency toward laziness. If you let life take over without disciplining your mind you let life happen to you. If you let your mind believe that you have no expectations, your mind will slow down even more.
The result is a life bogged with problems, atrophied abilities, inflexible attitudes, and an existence cut short in scope and length.
The fault is not with your mind, it is with you. You need to hold your mind to a standard. When a project fails we don't blame the crew but the leader in charge of executing the plan.
You are the leader of your mental, spiritual, and physical environment. You need to supply the proper leadership. You are the one who directs and motivates every cell in your body and thought in your mind.
What would think of a leader who with the best plans and material in the world threw away the plans and let his crew work as they please ruining the material given to him?
That's what you do when you decide to just let life happen to you. Age and time play an even more sinister role in this scenario because they reinforce the negative cycles in your mind. What would you expect the outcome to be?
God's commandments are your blueprint to an extraordinary life and your mind, body, and soul are the material given to you by God. Don't waste them.
You must execute the instruction with the materials you have every day with gusto until God calls you home.
What you get out life depends on how well you discipline your mind and life with God's commandments. Your time of life should be the best you can develop with what you've been given.
As you skillfully develop through life with God's law the end result should speak for itself. The model you pass to your brain through meditation and concentration will be much clearer and perfect in the end than when you started.
Instead of doubting your life's position in later years, you can boast of how your unceasing trust and development in God's word resulted in a better life than years ago.
Read, concentrate, and meditate on the commandments of Jesus, and develop a perfect picture of your life within God's laws. Then model yourself after it. Within a few weeks, you will begin to see the model more clearly.
Like all endeavors, you need to take action. Constantly taking action toward a purpose under divine guidance through God's law can help you accomplish anything.
