Study Question 5

  • The master gives us a sense of co-measurement when he tells us “...Some of the greatest masters that ever lived, when faced with the most terrible, searing trials of their existence, understood that by a smile and the understanding that it was necessary were able to feel a renewal of the flame of victory within them, of the God-determination that said:
I will not stop!
I will not accept the pressure of this mortal thing!
I will not accept this shroud over my identity!
I AM a son of God!
I am following in the footsteps of the master.
And behold, the master is my example.
I will do as he did
And believe as he believed.
I will act as he acted
And I will feel as he felt.
And there is no power in heaven or earth
That can dissuade me from acting that way.

Affirmations Taken from "The Victory Way of Life"
by Mighty Vic­tory (Decree 22.04 excerpt)

 
I AM the enveloping power of my Victory
That is a marvelous gift
Of infinite capacity to expand—
To expand my thought, to expand my perception to realize
I AM not the limited but the limitless.
By the power of the universal hierarchy,
I AM and I accept not only a sense of Victory
And its buoyancy, but also
The God‑realization that this is the plan
That was conceived from the beginning
By the pure Mind of God.
 
I AM and I accept the joy of the happy child that I AM
I AM and I accept my return
To that God‑realization of the miracle of Light!
I AM the pulsations of the sun's rays
As a marvelous potion, as a lotion bathing
The body and the mind and the being of man.
In the name of Jesus the Christ,
My own beloved Mighty I AM Presence,
I call to beloved Mighty Victory
To wipe away from my consciousness
All that is less than my Christ‑perfection,
All sense of doubt and fear and tribulation
And human mischief and produce in its place
The God‑realization that I AM Victory.
 
I AM THAT I AM
I AM the God‑realization that I AM Victory.
I AM the God‑realization that I AM Victory.
I AM the God‑realization that I AM Victory.
And in the name of my Mighty I AM Presence,
I understand that this is no ordinary activity;
It is an extraordinary activity
Of my own God Presence, I AM!
