Rejoicing in God's Allness

There is no greater joy than that which comes from the assurance of God's allness. As we become conscious of God as omnipotent and omnipresent good, we cease to fear evil, disease, and lack, and we are at peace. That God is the only presence and power is a sustaining fact. Spiritual assurance of this truth comes from understanding God; and the way to obtain this understanding is indicated in Psalm 111, where we read, "A good understanding have all they that do his commandments." The spiritual sense of God's allness can be maintained even when discordant sense testimony is clamoring for recognition. When the joyous consciousness of God's infinitude is experienced, we are able to maintain the assurance of spiritual victory.

Realization of the allness of God is won by outweighing the material with the spiritual in our thinking. There is no other way. The right goal can be reached as we become conscious of the allness of Spirit, and work from this standpoint. In "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 104) Mrs. Eddy says: "I will gain a balance on the side of good, my true being. This alone gives me the forces of God wherewith to overcome all error." As we gain and maintain "a balance on the side of good," our days are filled with the joyous conviction of Love's allness. What inspiration is gained to press forward when we realize that all good is possible of attainment now! Since God is ever-present good, there is in reality nothing that can obstruct or hinder the success of right effort. To gain and maintain a balance on God's side, through consecration to good, is an achievement within reach of each and every one. Much meditation upon the things of Spirit, and constant effort to apply in daily life the truth thus gleaned, enable us to maintain a clear realization of the omnipotence of God.
