God Supplies All Good

Christian Science reveals God as divine Love, and shows the way in which Love, the divine Principle of being, governs or cares for creation. Not only does Christian Science reveal the relationship existing between the creator and His spiritual creation; it also enables mankind to understand how divine Love supplies human needs. It is a noteworthy fact that God has been acknowledged in this way from early Biblical times, and long before Christ Jesus revealed to the world the fatherhood of God, which implied His paternal care for all His children. Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, and the Hebrew prophets all had sufficient knowledge of God, and of the activity of spiritual law, to obtain divine protection, and to experience in their lives on many occasions the goodness of God. They could sing with the Psalmist: "Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing;" "The Lord is my shephered; I shall not want."

What the prophets of Israel saw with less clear vision, Christ Jesus perceived with undimmed spiritual understanding. Isaiah had said, "And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not." Christ Jesus could say, "If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?" The Master, with his marvelous knowledge of the omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence of God, knew that man was cared for by God beyond what human imagination could possibly picture.
