“Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into newness of life and recognizing no mortal nor material power as able to destroy. Let us rejoice that we are subject to the divine ‘powers that be.’” (Science and Health, page 249)
The divine “powers that be” are those governing laws of God that lovingly preserve, save, and bless mankind. This supreme control is worth rejoicing over and releasing ourselves to, with calm trust and expectation of grace.
Physical energy can only take us so far. It can seem to rush along with enthusiasm and endurance and then just as quickly fade away. We may feel like we run until we are run down, relying on human will to push us forward, and sometimes failing to move at all. This weariness can seem beyond help. It may feel like it is our lot in life now or to come.
But the divine energy of Spirit is not daunted by these fears and limitations. This spiritual vitality comes from an inexhaustible Source and with a holy purpose—to perpetuate the Life that is God through His ideas. We can gratefully yield up that personal responsibility and let our bodies and minds lean into the constant and affectionate winds and wings of God’s power.
God is All and there is no resistance to His Spirit, His perfect and perpetual Life and its intention to be realized. You and I can feel this true energy, freely ours at all times. We can let go of the tight grip on the lies that bind us and allow the animating strength of Truth to revive us, uplift us, and energize us today and as we go forward into each new day.
