The Magic of Faith
The purpose of this chapter is to teach you the spiritual truth of your dominion and freedom. “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Prov. 3:6). “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.” (Psm. 121:1).
In the above verse from proverbs you are told to acknowledge the Infinite Intelligence within you, and that It shall direct you in all ways. The answer to your problem will come when you turn in faith and recognition to the Divine Principle within.
It was Shakespeare who said, “Our doubts are traitors, making us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.” Fear holds us back. Fear is a lack of faith in God or the Good.
A man told me one time that he was a member of a sales force for a large, chemical organization which had two hundred men in the field. The sales manager died, and the vice president offered him the position; however he turned it down. He realized later that the only reason he rejected the offer was due to fear. He was afraid to attempt the responsibility. This man lacked faith in himself and his Inner Power. He hesitated, and the wonderful opportunity passed him by.
