For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.—Isaiah, 55:8.

What a wonderful difference there is between God's way as taught in Christian Science and mortal man's way, which is really no way, although we are sometimes deceived into thinking it is. How often we hear the statement, "Each must work out his own problem in his own way." This is good advice, providing the student understands what the true way is. Paul says, in his Epistle to the Philippians. "It is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure." There are earnest students of Christian Science who are working faithfully in the way which seems to them right, yet who fail to receive that rest of which we read in the Scriptures.—"There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God." This condition probably arises from the lack of a proper conception of what is meant by working out one's own problem. The problem of the student of Christian Science is so to study the Scriptures and his text-book that he may see more clearly each day God's way; for there is only one way in which anything can be accomplished successfully; viz., in God's way; and the sooner we learn this fact the better.
