"Fear not"

In times of stress such as individuals and nations are today experiencing it is comforting and reassuring to consider attentively some instances recorded in the Bible when God's angels spoke to men who were struggling with doubts, fear, and grief, no less great than seem to torment men today, in these strengthening words: "Fear not."

"Angels" are defined in part by Mrs. Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 581) as "God's thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect." And the Psalmist assures us that "the counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations." How could it be otherwise, since God is unchanging Love? Today, as always, he who listens prayerfully hears this angel-message, "Be not afraid."
