THE GOLDEN CALF
In my book The Bible and the Law of Attraction, I committed an entire chapter to the Golden Calf. This may appear unrelated to the Law of Attraction, but it is very relevant. As it states in the Old Testament book of Exodus, God had redeemed the Israelites from slavery and as they were departing Egypt, God preformed many wonderful miracles for them. Miracles so astounding that if we were witness to them, we would never doubt Gods existence and power in the world. Astonishingly enough, the Israelites lost their trust in God any way. While Moses was on Mount Sinai receiving the Ten Commandments, the Israelites became rebellious. They fell prey to their doubt. Continue reading
GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS
Many stories and legends can be found In the Judeo-Christian religious traditions. Many of them are not recorded in the Bible.

What I am going to say right now may be radical, but it will require stepping back from your situation and really thinking about God and the Law of Attraction. Sometimes, God answers our prayers in unexpected ways. Most teachers of the Law of Attraction say that the reason we are going through negative situations is because we are attracting them, I agree with them, but to a point. From my personal experience, and reading the experiences of so many others, I learned that all negative things we are attracting are sometimes necessary for us to make clear what we do want to in our lives. God does not just heap heavy burdens on us so we will suffer. God never does anything in a random and haphazard way. Those things we deem as “negative” in our lives are Gods way of teaching us how to live happier lives and until we learn, he will continue to heap them on our shoulders, this is not because God is punishing us, but it is because God loves.
