Ever-present Supply

The Psalmist sang: "Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.... Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass." When our friends are sad and cast down with affliction, and we ask, "Do you believe in God?" they usually answer, "Oh, surely I believe in God!" It is indeed good to believe, but that is not sufficient; we must also put our trust in Him. The verb "trust" is defined in part as "to place confidence in; to rely on; confide or repose faith in." These words indicate plainly that we should depend upon God alone to supply our every need.

Mrs. Eddy says (No and Yes, p. 42): "God is not unable or unwilling to heal, and mortals are not compelled to have other gods before Him, and employ material forms to meet a mental want. The divine Spirit supplies all human needs."

Many people believe that their greatest need is money, since they cannot get along without it in this modern world. There is no doubt that money as a means of exchange is needed. Our true need, however, is for more spiritual unfoldment of the Christ, Truth. Our beloved Leader has given us this unfailing promise (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 494): "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." This statement has often brought comfort and consolation to students of Christian Science.
