“Thou shalt decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee:  and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”  Job 22:28

In Job, we see the law of attraction personified in this verse.  While Job himself was seen as suffering for no reason, often we feel the same.  But here he is reassessing, and he knows that when the light shines, all is well.  The light is coming out on the other side, the side of rewards, material blessings, intangible blessings of harmony, peace, joy, calm.

It is important that we understand what “decree” means.  We have to know a thing to be true, have no doubts.  Doubts will block our good every time.  When our mind and heart are crystal clear, that is when the blessings rain down upon our heads.  But only then, in clarity, nothing murky.

If we cannot decree a thing, then we are not ready for that particular blessing.  Casual affirmations don’t mean to “decree.”  Casual affirmations in which we cannot really believe will not get us where we want to go.  Affirmations require the whole force of a strong personality behind them.  If we can believe with our whole heart, we are onto something.  The whole world may doubt, may not stand behind us, but if we know in our deepest heart that a thing is true, we are very, very likely to be right.

I once believed a thing that none of my family and friends believed to be true.  But this belief was the deepest thing in me, barring none.  Years and years have passed, and I still believe it.  Such is the power of belief strongly held.  And nothing has ever happened to sway my belief.  I was onto something.

In the midst of conflicting evidence, still this belief has held sway.  And I expect that eventually I will know that I have been accurate in my understanding.  Miracles placed in our heart by God have a place of honor that no human dissembling can displace.

Decree a thing in which you really believe, and see what happens.

We all could be pleasantly and happily surprised.

  1. Thank you. I have been looking for this and thank you. And that is the Law. Torah means Law. Such a lovely post and lovely to see another who knows this great book is an allegory. Jesus is the Greek translation for Joshua and each one of us is on the road inside our minds – Calvary. Joshua comes from the Hebrew name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (Yehoshu’a) meaning “YAHWEH is salvation” I AM Salvation. I AM XXXX. Decree it. Be Peter the Rock and hold on tight. Imagination has taken over and is bringing you what you have declared is to be – if you believe it then you are happy. It is done. All beliefs are self imposed. Two sides to everything and in the end it just is and because it is – it is good. Love those monsters away. Love them because you made them but let them go into the light. That you know now all is good. Only we individually place good or bad upon something and turn it into an experience. That’s learning. The knowledge to be gained is not what Man says it is, the knowledge is it is all you and it is up to you and you can deny it all you want that isn’t going to stop Law from being Law. It is whatever you believe it is. It is all in the response. I truly love this post. Magnificent. Thank you for sharing!!


  2. Dear Celia – This time you have sent me this message at an extreme crossing on my path, when it was precisely what I needed to rememeber and to trust and to hold onto. Thank you. This is why God made so many of us, so we could help each other. We never know when a few words, a gesture, even something as simple as a genuine smile, can make all the difference in another person’s life, and soothe another soul’s journey. Thank you so much. Namaste.
