Lesson 71 – Only God’s plan for salvation will work.

Keys to this Lesson

The ego works opposite of God.
The ego’s plan for salvation will not work.
The ego’s plan is about holding grievances.
If someone else spoke or acted differently, well then you would be saved.
If some external circumstance or event were changed, you would be at peace.
The ego sees salvation always outside of us.
Each grievance that we hold tells us that if something were different out there in the world, then I would be happy.
It always leaves us searching for someone or something else.

The solution to all of this is today’s idea.
Only God’s plan for salvation will work and nothing else will.


2 longer practice periods today.
Think about the idea for today.
It has two parts:
1. God’s plan for salvation will work.
2. Other plans will not.

Don’t be upset at the second part.
Today is full release that will lead you to joy.

After this, devote the remainder of the extended practice to asking God to reveal His plan to you.
Ask Him very specifically:
What would You have me do?
Where would You have me go?
What would You have me say, and to whom?

Give God the rest of the practice period and let Him tell you what needs to be done by you in His plan for salvation.
He will answer you in proportion to your willingness to hear His Voice.
Jesus tell us: REFUSE NOT TO HEAR.
We do have willingness to listen as proved by the fact that we are actually doing these daily lessons.

Shorter practices:
Tell yourself often that God’s plan for salvation, and only His will work.

If you hold grievances respond with:
Holding grievances is the opposite of God’s plan for salvation. And only His plan will work.

Remember the idea for today 6-7 times and hour.
This is the for you to remember your Source of salvation and see where It is.


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
