Alone with God

The ability of Christ Jesus to realize the real man's constant unity with the Father doubtless accounted in a great measure for his many wise statements and wonderful works. When pointing out to the Pharisees the difference between their false judgment and his true judgment, he said, "And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me." And as though to emphasize the importance of this statement, he further said: "I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him."

The Father never leaves any of His children alone. It is only because we are not always thinking in conformity with Truth that we are not always conscious of His presence. Failure to recognize the presence of the "Father which seeth in secret" and rewards openly, may come from the belief that we are doing something of ourselves, something which, because of its wrong nature, God's law could not help us do, or something we think we can accomplish through our own sufficiency. Whether sinful desire, egotism, or ignorance has been standing between us and the blessings which come from the realization of the truth about God and man, it is comforting to know that God is always present, ever available, ever able to free us from all inharmony if we will only recognize and utilize His power.
