Haanel 6:9 “In the first place, there is the great mental world in which we live and move and have our being; this world is omnipotent and omnipresent; it will respond to our desire in direct ratio to our purpose and faith; the purpose must be in accordance with the law of our being, that is, it muse be creative or constructive; our faith must be strong enough to generate a current of sufficient strength to bring our purpose into manifestation. “As thy faith is, so be it unto thee.” bears the stamp of scientific test.” (bold and italic added)
What does “As thy faith is, so be it unto thee” means. This phrase is found in the Bible when Jesus met two blind men and healed them.
In the Bible, Mathew 9:27-30
” 27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” 28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied. 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”; 30 and their sight was restored.”
You see, when Jesus asked two blind men “Do you believe that I am able to to this?” how simple their answer was, “Yes, Lord!”. That’s all it’s required, very simple answer saying “Yes, I believe”! Can we do that? What do we usually do? We try to reason in our mind, “Well, really?, can this be done? How could it be? Can I? Should I? What are these questions? They are all doubts and resistance for whatever reason we are thinking of internally. They all stem from our thoughts. What kind of thoughts?
Haanel 6 “Thought is product of Mind and Mind is creative, but this does not mean that the Universal will change its modus operandi to suit our ideas. but it does mean that we can come into harmonious relationship with the Universal, and when we have accomplished this we may ask anything to which we are entitled, and the way will be made plain.” (bold added)
Once again, it seems simple and should be easy for us to this but is it? Can we get our thoughts in line with God and His promises and His character? But that’s all we need to be able to simply bring our request and ask.
Philippians 4:6-7 “6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (bold added)
It’s simply stated “present your request to God”. This is it, I just need to believe and bring it to God and present it to Him for whatever I desire as long as it is in line with His will and purpose.
Haanel 6:18 “The man who looks within instead of without cannot fail to make use of the mighty forces which will eventually determine his course in life and so bring him into vibration with all that is best, strongest and most desirable.”(bold added)
As long as I am looking within, I can be in tune with this mighty force (God) and Truth and will be able to discern what is the best, strongest and most desirable thing to request and ask for. What a privilege and blessing it is that this is available to us!
