ACIM Lesson 275 God’s healing Voice protects all things today. ³Join me in hearing. ⁴For the Voice for God tells us of things we cannot understand alone, nor learn apart. ⁵It is in this that all things are protected.
God’s healing Voice protects all things today.
1. Let us today attend the Voice for God, which speaks an ancient lesson, no more true today than any other day. ²Yet has this day been chosen as the time when we will seek and hear and learn and understand. ³Join me in hearing. ⁴For the Voice for God tells us of things we cannot understand alone, nor learn apart. ⁵It is in this that all things are protected. ⁶And in this the healing of the Voice for God is found.
2. Your healing Voice protects all things today, and so I leave all things to You. ²I need be anxious over nothing. ³For Your Voice will tell me what to do and where to go; to whom to speak and what to say to him, what thoughts to think, what words to give the world. ⁴The safety that I bring is given me. ⁵Father, Your Voice protects all things through me.
Many Ways to Hear His Voice
We have been told that God’s Voice speaks to us all through the day. Now we are told that God’s healing Voice protects all things today. Should we not learn to be attuned to that Voice? I hear His Voice in different ways. Sometimes it comes as what appears to be inspired thoughts, sometimes just a knowing. Often, it comes as a feeling such as feeling safe in a dangerous situation, or feeling at peace amidst chaos. Sometimes it feels like bliss.
Some people experience God’s healing Voice as visions or colors. One person I know sometimes sees words appear as if on a screen. This Voice for God shows up in the way the individual can understand and accept and is so normal that it is often overlooked or imagined to be their own thoughts. But that Voice is always there, comforting, directing, guiding, and healing. I am grateful that I learned to cultivate my ability to be aware of It.
Consider These Promises
If we accept that God’s healing Voice protects all things today, and if we stay attuned to His Voice, we can go through our life without anxiety. Jesus has told us that “You are afraid of this because you believe that without the ego, all would be chaos. ⁷Yet I assure you that without the ego, all would be love. (ACIM, T-15.V.1:6-7) It will not be chaos because we don’t actually need the ego to direct our lives, a job it does badly, anyway.
Consider this promise: ³For Your Voice will tell me what to do and where to go; to whom to speak and what to say to him, what thoughts to think, what words to give the world. In receiving this help, we give it to the world and so His Voice protects all thing through me. I have heard people say that we should not bring the Holy Spirit into the world, but that is exactly Who we should bring here.
Bring Everything to the Holy Spirit
Consider this: You have been told to ask the Holy Spirit for the answer to any specific problem, and that you will receive a specific answer if such is your need. (ACIM, S-1.I.2:1) And this: ⁴It is only because you think that you can run some little part, or deal with certain aspects of your life alone, that the guidance of the Holy Spirit is limited. (ACIM, T-14.XI.8:4)
There are many other places in the Course where we are told to bring our problems and questions to the Holy Spirit. As it says in the Song of Prayer: ⁴There are decisions to make here, and they must be made whether they be illusions or not. (ACIM, S-1.I.2:4) Why would we ever ask the ego for advice when we have the Voice for God to turn to?
