I've been hearing a lot about Law of Attraction. One full day face to
face training, training on whatsapp for 31 days, 90 days and, so on. Out of
curiosity I joined a free introduction training on whatsapp for one week and a
concept was taught everyday.
was interesting to attend as I received most of the answers to how the Bible
works. When I was a child and asked questions as I read the Bible, I was asked
to believe without a doubt what the Bible says. But when I attended the
training on whatsapp, the hidden information was explained in detail. So I
thought of writing this blog on what struck my mind.
take a concept – Ask, Believe, Receive (LOA)
In the Bible, in New Testament, the first
book, Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 7, verses 7 and eight (Matt 7:7–8) says,“Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one
that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it
shall be opened.”
seeking, and knocking are all metaphors for the act of prayer. But how to ask
and how to receive aren’t clearly mentioned. Because of that some ask and
receive while others don’t. And they don’t know why they didn’t receive.
LOA, three concepts were explained.
1) Thoughts become things
2) What you put your attention and
focus on, grows stronger in life and
Like attracts like
When we want something, we think of it. When we keep
thinking positively, our thoughts manifest and become things that we desire.
And then thank the universe for bringing our thoughts into reality.
Now for the comparison, prayer is asking to
the Almighty God. LOA is having a burning desire which gets manifested by the
universe. We all know God; we worship Him in one form or the other. I am not
going to debate on this, let me leave it here. What is universe? It is the open
space where the planets, stars, clouds, galaxies, etc (who knows, we are yet to
find them) are free floating. They did not come into existence automatically.
The Almighty God created them. Then why do we have to get it from the universe
which is the creation instead of the creator. I am borrowing a whatsapp status
of my niece, “Why wish upon a star when you can pray to the one who created
Ask God the creator of the universe and you and me
and He will fulfill all the desires of your heart.
Bible says in the book of Psalm 20:4,“Grant
thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.” In Psalm 37:4,
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine
heart.” In Psalm 21:2, “You have granted his
heart's desire and have not withheld the request of his lips.” In Psalm
145:19, “He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; He hears
their cry and saves them.”
will discuss one more concept in the next blog. Do share your comments to [email protected]or in the box below.
