Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates - Archived Messages

RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for June 3, 2007 

           "This is the crucial point in the science of getting rich; right here, where thought and personal action must be combined.  There are very many people who, consciously or unconsciously, set the creative forces in action by the strength and persistence of their desires, but who remain poor because they do not provide for the reception of the thing they want when it comes. ... By thought, the thing you want is brought to you; by action you receive it" - Wallace D. Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich

     Each and every one of us goes through times when we feel that we are overwhelmed with the issues that confront us.  Many of us are experiencing health issues, financial issues, relationship issues, and employment issues.  And some of us are letting these issues take our joy away ... and we feel trapped in the situations and conditions present in our lives.  Our thoughts are consumed with our problems ... rather than our solutions.  We have searched our mind for the "cause" or "why" these negative conditions persist in our lives ... and this fixation on the problem ... just keeps giving life to it.  We don't mean to let this happen ... but the presence of the negative can sometimes be so strong that it overpowers our desire to transcend it.

     We will never overcome a problem by giving attention to it.  We overcome our problems by taking our attention from them ... with persistence and self-discipline ... and giving our attention, in our mind, to that which we choose to experience or to see made manifest in our lives.  Why?  Because the Power of God that is available to us ... is not outside of us ... but "within" us ... within our mind ... it is the Spirit within ... and the spirit in which we "make use" of this Power ... will determine our success or lack of success in transcending our problems.  Nothing that we possess or experience was "accepted" outside of us ... everything that we possess and are experiencing ... was accepted within our minds.  But ... did we "accept" it ... or did we just "let" it in?  That is the question that we might want to contemplate.  For many of us the answer is, "we just let it in" ... in other words, we have never established within our mind the decision to have or experience something different ... and in failing to make the decision ... we have "let in" that which is not of our choosing ... but of our failure to choose.  Are you with me on this?  We must be clear on this ... for this is the way to understanding where our power is ... our power to "choose" and to "accept" that which we want ... not that which we do not want or that which falls short of giving us joy.

     When we lose our love, our joy, our happiness, our peace ... we have given up our power to something else.  And in doing this, we have separated ourselves from God ... in our minds.  God lives in us ... and the Power of God dwells within our mind ... the spirit of us.  And we have allowed the situations and conditions of our lives to control our mind ... we have given up God, the Good, for them.  We cannot realize the presence of God within us and at the same time be unhappy, depressed, morose or morbid.  We cannot.  We must choose which we will allow in to our mind ... and be willing to "wait" for our consciousness to "agree" with our choices.

    Each of us must know that God, Infinite Love, wants to give to us ... but It cannot give to us unless we "choose."  It is incumbent upon us to make the "decisions" on how we are to experience Life.  Working through the Law of Attraction, Love works definitely and specifically.  Which of our desires are the most appealing to us?  Let us take the time to figure this out ... otherwise we are like the Israelites (physical man) wandering across the Desert not knowing where we are going.  And let us not be concerned about "how" our desires will be fulfilled ... for we are working with Spirit ... we are not working in the physical ... but the spiritual ... and on this level all obstructions and obstacles will be transcended.

     Once we have made our decision to manifest our desires ... whether it be for health, wealth, companionship or career ... we must take the "idea" of it into our consciousness and "accept" it has completed ... done unto us ... and dwell on it until it becomes so real in our mind we are poised to take action both in mind and in the physical to accomplish it.  This is the spirit of acceptance ... this is knowing that God is working with us, through us ... and in this knowing ... we can never fail. 


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
