Mind's Infinite Resources

As the student of Christian Science progresses in the study and practice of Mrs. Eddy's teachings, he becomes convinced that he has found a remedy not only for all kinds of diseases, but for lack in every form, whatever its name or nature. Through demonstration he learns to place implicit faith in the Biblical promises that God, divine Love, does meet every need of mankind, supplies every lack, provides for every want. He learns to place complete reliance upon God, in the firm conviction that such trustfulness is the necessity, if human experience is to be purposive and successful. The broad scope of this whole-hearted trust in God may not be grasped at once, for consecration, obedience, humility, and careful thought-taking are necessary in order to encompass even a modicum of its vast possibilities.

To meet every need of mankind, humanly considered, seems an impossible task. Yet how completely does divine Love meet our needs, even though there be little recognition of the source of the good made manifest. The sick may habitually ask for spiritual aid in overcoming the belief of suffering; those in want may seek supply through invoking the divine power; the sinning, weary of their course, may ask God for forgiveness and freedom; the sorrowing, likewise, may look to infinite Love to comfort them in their afflictions; and the unemployed may seek to find their rightful place through spiritual understanding, their own as well as that of another. For all these and for many other forms of lack, relief is sought through righteous prayer.
