I said to the Master, “How do I turn on the power of God?”
The Master said, “How did you turn it off?”
Then I saw that if the power of God should be turned off even for a moment, the universe would crash to an end and crumble into nothingness.
The power of God is at work in every atom.
The power of God is at work in every mind.
The power of God is at work in you.
Night and day, pouring forth power, sending power surging through every trembling wire, the generators are at work in a city, whether the city wakes or sleeps.
Night and day, the power of God is at work, whether you turn it on or not. Whether you are awake to it or not, whether you know it or not, whether you invite it or not, the power is at work. And it is at work in you.
You can refuse to use the power consciously–that is all. But always, when you refuse to use the power consciously, the power may unconsciously use you.
The power of God presses at every point of being, waiting to be drawn forth.
How do you draw it forth?
Is not the best way to let it draw you forth?
For you can use the power of God to the extent of your capacity, but God uses you to the extent of His capacity.
Your wisdom is limited but God’s wisdom has no limits.
So when you let God use you as He finds good, who can foresee what good wil be brought forth?
