"Hope thou in God"

[Original article in German]

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me?" asks the Psalmist. These words indicate a condition of human thought that is certainly not unknown to men today. The suggestions of mortal mind seek to deceive and strive for recognition, as though they were true and real. The outward picture may present the appearance of sickness or weakness. The suggestion may appear as a difficult business situation, or lack of work. Or the trouble may be inharmonious family relationships, which cause sorrow. But since evil never has real power, we are only faced with unreality claiming to be real.

The most common weapon of the tempter is doubt in some guise, the attempt to shatter faith in God, good. But whoever has learned in Christian Science and has proved for himself that God is omnipotent, that He alone has power, and that only His law governs, knows that in God's kingdom all is perfect, harmonious, and healthy. He knows, furthermore, that divine law can never be made ineffective through anything that mortal thinking may devise. The unity of God and His ideas can never be disturbed, much less destroyed.
