This lesson encourages you to seek God as a refuge. A refuge is a source of strength beyond your own. When we seek God first and believe in his power as our only source, we find ourselves.
God is my refuge and security.
I will identify with what I think is refuge and security. I will behold myself where I perceive my strength, and think I live within the citadel where I am safe and cannot be attacked. Let me today seek not security in danger, nor attempt to find my peace in murderous attack. I live in God. In Him I find my refuge and my strength. In Him is my Identity. In Him is everlasting peace. And only there will I remember Who I really am.
Let me not seek for idols. I would come, my Father, home to You today. I choose to be as You created me, and find the Son whom You created as my Self.
Quote of the Day "At the highest level of our being, we don't do anything. We are at rest when the power of God works through us. Meditation is a profound relaxation. The ego's frantic voice, its vain imaginings, are burned away."
