Lesson 168

“Your grace is given me. I claim it now.”

God speaks to us. Shall we not speak to Him? He is not distant. He
makes no attempt to hide from us. We try to hide from Him, and
suffer from deception. He remains entirely accessible. He loves His
Son. There is no certainty but this, yet this suffices. He will love His
Son forever. When his mind remains asleep, He loves him still. And
when his mind awakes, He loves him with a never-changing Love.

If you but knew the meaning of His Love hope and despair
would be impossible, for hope would be forever satisfied; despair of
any kind unthinkable. His grace His answer is to all despair, for in it
lies remembrance of His Love. Would He not gladly give the means
by which His Will is recognized? His grace is yours by your
acknowledgment. And memory of Him awakens in the mind which
asks the means of Him whereby its sleep is done.

Today we ask of God the gift He has most carefully preserved
within our hearts, waiting to be acknowledged. This the gift by
which God leans to us and lifts us up, taking salvation’s final step
Himself. All steps but this we learn, instructed by His Voice. But
finally He comes Himself and takes us in His Arms, and sweeps away
the cobwebs of our sleep. His gift of grace is more than just an
answer. It restores all memories the sleeping mind forgot; all certainty
of what love’s meaning is.

God loves His Son. Request Him now to give the means by
which this world will disappear, and vision first will come, with
knowledge but an instant later. For in grace you see a light that
covers all the world in love, and watch fear disappear from every face
as hearts rise up and claim the light as theirs. What now remains that
Heaven be delayed an instant longer? What remains undone when
your forgiveness rests on everything?

It is a new and holy day today, for we receive what has been
given us. Our faith lies in the Giver, not our own acceptance. We
acknowledge our mistakes, but He to Whom all error is unknown is
yet the One Who answers our mistakes by giving us the means to lay
them down, and rise to Him in gratitude and love.

And He descends to meet us as we come to Him, for what He has
prepared for us He gives and we receive. Such is His Will because He
loves His Son. To Him we pray today, returning but the words He
gave to us through His Own Voice, His Word, His Love:

“Your grace is given me. I claim it now.
Father, I come to You. And You will come
Tome who asks. I am the Son You love.”
