Got a problem? Have you considered asking God for help? I mean really asking your Higher Power for assistance as if they were a real person sitting or standing right next to you?
In this chapter this is exactly what Peale suggests that we do. Look at the Lord your God or Higher Power as being with you always in the same way that you would see your husband, wife, family, friends and even business associates as being with you!
That’s right! You did just read that!
Talk to your Higher Power or God in the same manner about the things going on in your life as you would to a friend, business associate or life partner. Hey, don’t knock it until you try it! You just might find out that it can work!
Of course, as you talk to God you have to have faith that God is hearing your words and that he will respond in some way. Your faith should be such in using this method that you expect a response even if it is simply through ideas for a solution coming into your own mind. Otherwise, it is more than likely not going to work.
You don’t have to be the only one talking to God. In certain situations you may wish to do this as part of a group. This can actually have more powerful effects under certain circumstances, if the situation affects all of you. But none of this will work unless you believe it will. Part of getting divine intervention is being able to believe that it exists!
Matthew 9:29: “According to your faith be it unto you!” You don’t have to have a lot of faith to get benefits from it! But, the amount of faith you put out will determine what God will give you back!
If you believe that every problem has a solution you can stay calm and relaxed mentally and physically regardless of the situation. How does this work? If you’ve never done this before Peale tells us that the process basically goes like this.
Impartially assemble all the facts about a situation or problem you are experiencing. Take care to write down the facts on paper to clarify what they are. Pray about the problem or situation you are experiencing. Believe in and seek God’s guidance. Trust your intuition. Do all this with an attitude of faith and the final solution is yours to experience!
