Did you get the notice? When circumstances
said, "No!" and people said, "No!" the Father said, "Yes!!!"
The Father said, "Yes" - this is the favor of God. This is the grace
of God. You did not do a thing to deserve it. Favor is a gift. Grace is a
gift. You never have to do any thing to deserve a gift. A
gift is always freely given - when you had accepted Christ as the head of your
life you received the gift of grace. Grace - the favor of God is a gift that
came when you accepted Christ.
The notice was given long ago and it applies to
you. The notice applies to all the people of the world. You might recall the
news - "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever
believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." This includes
everyone - but on condition. And the one condition is to believe "in
Grace is part of eternal life. Recall the news,
Jesus was quoted in the account, saying, "I came that you might have life
and have it abundantly". Well, the only kind of life Jesus offered is
eternal life. The qualities of Jesus Christ are the qualities of Awakened
Imagination - the qualities of the Image that acts. So, Awakened Imagination
offers you the abundant life - eternal life. Consciously aware of self as the
Image that acts, look around and see the fullness of life. How much life did
To experience the fullness and completeness of
life, especially when operating in the world - where the world focuses on
various forms of limitation and separateness, you need special advantages. You
need special arrangements.
With grace, you experience the fullness and
completeness of life when the circumstances showed limitation, lack, and other
things concerning you. In the favor of God, you experience perfection and
wholeness although the situations reflected insufficiency, sickness and
disease as well as unfair laws or confinement.
The grace of God overrides the impact of
universal beliefs. Situations in the world demand certain responses from you.
In the favor of God, these situations are rearranged on your behalf. The cells
in the body of a loved one reflected illness. With the grace of God upon the
loved one, the cells of his body took on the nature of wholeness and wellness.
The contents of the cells were rearranged. The chemistry of the cells was
modified to express perfection.
The favor of God is a gift that came when you
accepted Christ as the head of your life. This gift of grace was upon you from
the moment you recognized Awakened Imagination as the rule over your life. In
the Image that acts, you rearrange situations, cells and chemistry. In your
actions with images, you constantly make new interpretations and arrangements
to match those interpretations.
Notice of grace and favor is served to remind
you that where you missed the mark - did not hit your target or reach your
goal, grace is available at a super abundant level. In other words, amounts of
grace and favor available to you far outweigh the errors. Far more grace - far
more special arrangements are available for you than are the stuff that formed

favor is a concept. For each, personify them and observe them as images. Call

mind. Instruct these images to tell you their missions for you. Listen and
hear what they said. Do this to be familiar with grace and favor in your life.

that you are one with them - you are merged as a single being. You are grace
and favor. Express joy that these energies are with you and are now available
to rearrange circumstances on your behalf.

grace and favor of God. In other words, you activated the consciousness of
grace and favor within you. These states were always within you and are now
activated for your use as you deal with situations in the world around you.
