Claiming God’s Peace as Ours

Now will I seek and find the peace of God.

In peace I was created. And in peace do I remain. It is not given me to change my Self. How merciful is God my Father, that when He created me He gave me peace forever. Now I ask but to be what I am. And can this be denied me, when it is forever true?

Father, I seek the peace You gave as mine in my creation. What was given then must be here now, for my creation was apart from time, and still remains beyond all change. The peace in which Your Son was born into Your Mind is shining there unchanged. I am as You created me. I need but call on You to find the peace You gave. It is Your Will that gave it to Your Son. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 230, W-pII.230. See also ACIM Lesson 230 Insights.)

There is a saying about a child of a wealthy father, “He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth.” We were born as Son of the Source of infinite abundance. He gave us all of Himself in our creation — all His peace, joy and Love. This is wealth beyond measure in the world, for it is not of the world.

We do not have to do anything or go anywhere to claim the peace that is our birthright. We simply need to stop trying to make a world of illusions that hides God’s gifts from our awareness. They are still there, unchanged, waiting for our acceptance.

Today we practice pausing in the midst of our doing in the world to remember the gifts that our ours. As we do this we remember our Identity as God’s Son, His Creation.
