No Limitation in Truth

The Psalmist, referring to the disobedience of the people, said, "They spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?" This question epitomizes the human doubt that divine aid can meet human needs in circumstances where supply appears to be humanly impossible. The Scriptures record many instances in which the realization of Spirit's supremacy overcame the belief in lack or limitation.

In the fourteenth chapter of Matthew's Gospel it is related that when Jesus had departed "into a desert place" a great multitude followed him out of the cities. There he healed their sick, and having thus fed the people spiritually, he proceeded to prove, contrary to material belief, that Love could also supply them with their temporary food. He demonstrated the truth, overcoming the sense of limitation, and proved that no set of circumstances can prevent the realization and demonstration of spiritual abundance. Anxiety for daily supplies is therefore overcome through spiritual understanding. In his Sermon on the Mount, our Master gave the express command, "Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on."

What seems to be limitation is primarily the human belief in limits, made manifest in experience. Matter is not the solid substance which human belief claims it to be. When this is recognized, it will be seen that matter can neither help nor hinder the right endeavor to demonstrate the truth of supply as Jesus did.
