"Trust ye in the Lord for ever"

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE is teaching men the true nature of God and how to put their trust in Him. It is revealing to them His unlimited goodness and love, His omnipotence and omnipresence, and showing them how they may avail themselves at all times of that goodness, love, and power. It is saying to them, even as did Isaiah, "Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength." How strong was the prophet's faith in God! And Christian Science, which in every particular agrees with the teaching of Christ Jesus, inculcates the same faith, showing how it insures divine aid. Mrs. Eddy writes (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 444), "Step by step will those who trust Him find that 'God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.'"

God is never absent from anyone. God is infinite Mind, and man is the image, reflection, or idea of this Mind. Hence, there is never any separation between God and the real man; and the real man is the spiritual selfhood of each of us. This means that in reality we as individuals are ever at-one with, ever allied to, omnipotent good. Let material sense suggest what it may to the contrary, the great spiritual truth remains that man is continually supported by divine Mind, continually supplied with life, love, and good, even to an unlimited extent.
