Hope looks forward, Faith knows it has already received and acts accordingly.
In my classes I often emphasize the importance of digging ditches (or preparing for the thing asked for) which shows active faith and brings the demonstration to pass.
A man in my class, whom I called "the life of the party," because he always tried to find a question I couldn't answer, but he never succeeded, asked: "Why is it then, a lot of women who prepare Hope Chests never get married?" I replied: "Because it is a Hope Chest and not a Faith Chest."
The prospective bride also violates law in telling others about it. Her friends come in and sit on the Hope Chest and either doubt or hope she'll never succeed.
"Pray to thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly."
The student should never talk of a demonstration until it "has jelled," or comes to pass on the external.
So a Hope Chest should become a Faith Chest and be kept from the public eye, and the word spoken for the Divine Selection of a husband, under grace in a perfect way.
Those whom God hath joined together no thought can put asunder.
Adverse appearances work for my good, for God utilizes every person and every situation to bring to me my heart's desire. "Hindrances are friendly" and obstacles spring boards! I now jump into my good!
As I am one with the Undivided One, I am one with my undivided good.
As the needle in the compass is true to the north, what is rightfully mine is true to me. I am the North!
I am now linked by an invisible, unbreakable magnetic cord with all that belongs to me by Divine Right!
Thy Kingdom is come, Thy will is done in me and my affairs.
I am poised and powerful, my greatest expectations are realized in a miraculous way.
I now exercize my fearless faith in three ways – by thinking, speaking and acting. I am unmoved by appearances, therefore appearances move.
I am in perfect harmony with the working of the law, for I know that Infinite Intelligence knows nothing of obstacles, time or space. It knows only completion.
I give thanks that I now receive the righteous desires of my heart. Mountains are removed, valleys exalted and every crooked place made straight. I am in the Kingdom of fulfillment.
Before I called I was answered and I now gather in my harvest in a remarkable way.
