Whatever your concept and whatever your attitude toward God at present, I want to give you the positive assurance that you can re-establish a personal feeling for God in a much more intimate and understanding and demonstrable way than ever before. You can find God as I and millions of others have found Him–within your own mind and heart. You can become aware of this God Presence when you have learned how to free your consciousness from fears and doubts and other disturbed thoughts, so that you can make contact with your real inner self and realize the miraculous fact that you actually are a part of God!
Once having bestowed upon mankind the priceless gift of free will, God is helpless to assist man until and unless man attunes himself voluntarily to God’s Will, in obedience to His law.
So start now in preparation for the good things which will be set before your soul when you have illumined the path of your life by the light of Love!
– Harold Sherman, How to Use the Power of Prayer, 1958.
Then Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious; for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription:
TO THE UNKNOWN GOD.
Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’
Acts 17: 22-28
The Bible, New King James Version
