God's Promises

"Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils," counseled Isaiah; and, "Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man," sang the Psalmist. Yet, when we consider the matter, we find that our confidence in our fellow men often seems greater than our reliance upon the Almighty; and it were well to ponder the pertinent statement in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 368), where Mrs. Eddy says, "When we come to have more faith in the truth of being than we have in error, more faith in Spirit than in matter, more faith in living than in dying, more faith in God than in man, then no material suppositions can prevent us from healing the sick and destroying error."

Christian Science is consistent in demanding that humanity rely wholly upon God, and confidently expect, here and now, the fulfillment of His promises. This Science has restated the basic teachings of Christ Jesus in such a way as to impress a doubting world; and many have been enabled to grasp and accept these teachings as never before. It is this insistence on the fundamental truths the Master taught that distinguishes Christian Science from all false religious teachings. On this point, that God's promises are sure, it is very definite. The Bible is full of such promises, and the study of them should give us courage to live our lives righteously and happily, in spite of the seeming difficulties that would claim to bar the way.
