A Safe Abiding

WE all want to be healed, healed of sickness and the liability to sickness, of sin and the temptation to sin.

If besetments of sin or sickness came to us at known intervals and with a measurable claim of power, we might meet them with occasional strength and dispel their shadows with a flood of unusual light.

Spasmodic effort, however, will not liberate us; it is in the abiding under the shadow of the Almighty that we are secure; for these false accusers,—sin, sorrow, sickness, lack, discouragement,—gain ingress through our own habitual apathy. They have no power or reality in themselves, they are simply negative, and can no more enter the consciousness of him who abides in Love than darkness can enter light.
