Today’s lesson, and the lesson for every day until the end of this year, is the beautiful declaration that you will follow God. You have decided to step back, to merely follow and not lead. It goes so beautifully with the DVD I was watching today ‘A Gathering Of Unchained Melody: I Will Step Back And Let Him Lead The Way‘.

The incredible quote from the DVD is this:
“Walk safely now, yet carefully, because this path is new to you. And you may find that you are tempted still to walk ahead of truth, and let illusions be your guide. Your holy brothers have been given you, to follow in your footsteps as you walk with certainty of purpose to the truth. It goes before you now, that they may see something with which they can identify; something they understand to lead the way.
It goes before you right now. Ok? You are at the journey’s ending. Can you tell? If you kept stepping back, suddenly you find yourself surrounded by a light that allows you to leave the continuum in which you thought you were present. Ok? Step back, step back now:
Yet at the journey’s ending there will be no gap, no distance between truth and you. And all illusions walking in the way you traveled will be gone from you as well, with nothing left to keep the truth apart from God’s completion, holy as Himself. Step back in faith and let truth lead the way. You know not where you go. But One Who knows goes with you. Let Him lead you with the rest. Listen.
When dreams are over, time has closed the door on all the things that pass and miracles are purposeless, the holy Son of God will make no journeys. There will be no wish to be illusion rather than the truth. And we step forth toward this, as we progress along the way that truth points out to us. This is our final journey, which we make for everyone. We must not lose our way. For as truth goes before us, so it goes before our brothers who have been following us.”
You let the light guide you. You don’t try to get ahead of it and to stay ahead of it, you don’t try to do things of your own accord; you simply wait and ask and then you proceed. You let the Holy Spirit lead you, you let God take over. And what comes out of your mouth might surprise you, it may cause mayhem and uproar; let it. This is your undoing. It’s all too easy to give into this world, to concede to getting old and dying, because it seems to be the easiest way out and you have simply given up. But the light is here, it is always with you. Don’t forget now what you have been shown. You are responsible. You owe a great debt to your brother, you owe him the truth. Give him what you have been offered, and be you uncompromising in your declaration. Let your world fall apart, it will reconfigure in a brand new continuum. Let all things be new, that you may be new. It is the time of rebirth and it is happening in you.
And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by my request. And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son.
