Prayer Devotional: Day 287

What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. – 1 Corinthians 2:12 NIV

I have watched the movie The Secret a few times, which presents the law of attraction. According to an Infinite Intelligence Blog, “Abraham Hicks is the name of a non-physical entity that is channelled by Esther Hicks. Their teachings are said to be about the law of attraction. Esther describes them as ‘a group of non-physical entities who present themselves as Abraham, and who speaks through a process known as channelling.’”

We need to be careful what sources we receive information from. Abraham Hicks is not God, yet the law of attraction has become very popular. I have had coaches follow the law of attraction and preach its teachings as if it were equivalent or a replacement to the Bible.

I find this misinformation upsetting. I paid many coaches to teach me to become more profitable in my freelance business over the years, but it was only during the last four years that I realized that the source I should really be listening to is the Holy Spirit. There is no need to channel some mystical self help guru when we have the Holy Spirit to provide true direction. God will never mislead us. God’s law is the law that matters. God spoke our existence into being. There is no creative source for manifestation more powerful than God. Amen.
