Power

We are never anxious about the sun or the stars. Why not establish the same simple conviction concerning ourselves that we entertain regarding the heavens; that is, that harmony and well-being are natural? Let us consider the astronomer gazing at the stars, or the physicist, who sees that there is a force, which he names gravitation or attraction, and investigates it. Although it is elusive, still as he proceeds he is awed by the overwhelming conviction that there is a tremendous force which holds the earth in its orbit. Has he not caught a glimpse concerning force from which we may all glean a lesson?

Let us reason from the admission that God is the only creator, and assume that the creator can also govern or maintain His creation. In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, we find this sentence (p. 514): "Understanding the control which Love held over all, Daniel felt safe in the lions' den, and Paul proved the viper to be harmless." This sentence includes the assertion that one power holds control over all, and it defines that power as Love.
