Jesus Christ emphasized the power of the word; "By thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned," and "death and life are in power of the tongue."
So man has power to change an unhappy condition by waving over it the wand of his word. In the place of sorrow appears joy, in the place of sickness appears health, in the place of lack appears plenty. The imaging faculty is the creative faculty and it is important to choose words which bring a flash of the fulfillment of the demand.
Never force a picture by visualizing; let the divine idea flash into your conscious mind; then the student is working according to the divine design.
There is no truth in lack or limitation. He waves over it the wand of his word and the wilderness rejoices and blossoms as the rose. Fear, doubt, anxiety, anger, resentment pull down the cells of the body, shock the nervous system and are the causes of disease and disaster.
Happiness and health must be earned by absolute control of the emotional nature.
Power moves but is never moved. When man stands calm and serene, has a good appetite, feels contented and happy when appearances are against him, he has reached mastery. Then he has power to "rebuke the winds and the waves," to control conditions. His word is his wand and he transmutes apparent failure into success. He knows his universal supply is endless and immediate and all his needs manifest instantly on the external.
