Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about strengthening your faith in the face of disappointments and failed attempts to remedy what would seem to you as a hopeless cause. Discouragement and anger directed at yourself or at God for some ongoing affliction will never solve your problem. You must be diligent and work toward the goal of solving the issue at hand, using every spiritual tool available to you. Persistence, faith, and holding the outcome you desire firmly in your mind, which must be aligned with the highest good for all, is the answer to your problem.
“Constant prayer and communication with the Father's presence is vital in manifesting the highest good. Keep asking questions and listening for answers about what options you might pursue that would best serve you and others that may be involved. You must also keep in mind that God does not move according to your expectations, and time is never a factor in any remedy of spirit, only when the conditions are right will spirit move.
“Impatience leads to frustration and anger. Be patient and know that the solution to your problem is being worked out and is on its way to you. Look for the signposts and do your homework. Many times the answer can be found in human sources. Listen to those small ‘nudges’ from spirit, which will lead you on a path to solving the issue. Sometimes a book, article, Internet research, or talking with a trusted friend will point you in the right direction.
“Be at peace, having faith that your affliction has a higher purpose and the journey to finding the solution, healing, or answer, is a part of some needed experience that will serve you and others well in the future. It may be that you are a pioneer in solving this particular problem and that your advice for solving it will be sought out by many for which you will become a great resource for the relief of suffering.
“Draw close to the Father's Presence and remain in constant communication with spirit.
“Join me now in a prayer: Father, my God, my maker, my reason for being, please help me in solving this problem that plagues me. Lead me on the path of light and discovery that will bring me to the other side where I can look back and clearly see the meanings and understand the values for being so afflicted. Give me peace when I am frustrated and give me hope when I doubt, for all shall be made right in your time, according to your Will, according to light. Encourage me to seek, to find, and to knock until all doors are open to me. Give to me the inspiration to move through the open door and to have the confidence that I have chosen well, knowing your Spirit of Truth guides me in my choices. AMEN!
