8. What Is The Real World?
A Happy Outcome To All Things Is Sure.
God’s promises make no exceptions. And He guarantees that only joy can be the final outcome found for everything. Yet it is up to us when this is reached; how long we let an alien will, appear to be opposing His.102 And while we think this will is real, we will not find the end He has appointed as the outcome of all problems we perceive, all trials we see, and every situation that we meet. Yet is the ending certain, for God’s will is done in earth and Heaven.103 We will seek and we will find according to His will, which guarantees that our will is done.104
2. We thank You, Father, for Your guarantee of only happy outcomes in the end. Help us not interfere and so delay the happy endings You have promised us for every problem that we can perceive; for ever trial we think we still must meet..

Footnote 102. The “alien will” is the ego’s will, which is alien to us because it does not represent our true desires.
Footnote 103. Matthew 6:10 (KJV): “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” The above reference, rather than asking us to pray that God’s will be done on earth, simply acknowledges that in the end His will is done on earth. This is why “A happy outcome to all things is sure.”
Footnote 104. Matthew 7:7 (RSV): “Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” In the above reference, what we seek we will find because God’s will guarantees that our will—our true desire—is “done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10 [KJV]).
A happy outcome to all things is sure. I meditate on above prayer today, and in quiet I wait to hear my Father’s Voice. I pray for all my brothers and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection, and illumination, of The Way, The Truth, The Life, in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!
