All That the Father Hath

Who does not realize, in the general upheaval of the world today, that the human heart, through all its trials, is reaching out for good? Often this good is materially interpreted; often there comes a cry to be relieved from a binding, enslaving sense of limitation. So many human beings are wandering in darkness, oppressed with a belief of separation from what they think is substance, because they are cut off from what they consider to be their source of supply. How does divine Love meet this human need?

In Jesus' parable of the prodigal son, the father said to the elder brother, who remained at home, "Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine." "All that I have"—this is what the heavenly Father is saying to every one of His children. It is the Adam-dream, the false belief that man does not reflect one infinite God, good, which brings the sense of separation and seems to close the door to plenty.

Job, in the midst of his material loss, cried, "Oh that I knew where I might find him!" Eventually Job recognized God so near at hand that he declared, "I know ... no thought can be withholden from thee." And with that realization of the power and presence of God came a true sense of health, and of God's infinite abundance; and these were made manifest in his experience.
