Divine Protection

Since the Scriptures are so full of assurances of protection to all who put their trust in God, it seems impossible for an earnest student of the Bible to doubt for long the practical availability of God's power as a "very present help" in every time of need. The psalmist sang, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." Those who are learning and striving to follow the Christ-way as taught in Christian Science, prove beyond all cavil that the Word of God is indeed a covert from the storms of earthly experiences, where they may enter and abide in safety and security forever. As mortals awaken to the fact that it is not the Father's will that any of His "little ones" should perish, but that all may be sheltered today "under his wings," then will the practical import of the Word of God be more and more understood and utilized, until it shall have become universal in its scope of loving helpfulness to all mankind.

We learn from the Bible that "God is no respecter of persons," and also that He is a "shield and buckler" unto all that call upon Him in truth. Christian Scientists are daily proving that no situation or condition can possibly arise in which God is not omnipresent and ever willing to sustain and protect them from every conceivable phase of mortal experience. With every victory over untoward conditions they grow proportionately more grateful for the infinite wisdom which revealed this Science to one who was found ready and willing to make it comprehensible as well as available to a suffering world. The world may not be ready as yet to believe all our report, and some may even say, as did Festus to Paul, "Much learning doth make thee mad;" but as Christian Scientists we can always give the reason of the hope that is within us and answer, as did the apostle, that we "speak forth the words of truth and soberness."
