Omnipresent Good

True prayer enables us to partake of boundless good. And Christian Science reveals that because God is infinite good, good does not come and go. It is not localized, and we do not have to go anywhere to experience it. Good is omnipresent and flows into human experience in the measure that we make room for it through spiritual-mindedness and right living.

Many times we strive to get something material which we believe is essential to our happiness. The understanding that God is ever meeting our needs, and that as His reflection we are now where good is, will result in the manifestation of our daily supply. Instead of waiting for some spectacular evidence of God's presence to strengthen our faith, we may find it necessary to purge self of material longings, discontent, avarice, and fear, thereby preparing our thinking for the inspiration which reveals omnipresent good. The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 154), "God only waits for man's worthiness to enhance the means and measure of His grace."

Bringing every thought into obedience to Spirit, God, enables us to see that no matter what the problem presenting itself to us may be, its counterfact is already established in divine Mind, and but awaits our acceptance of it. It is unthinkable that in the infinitude of perfection aught of an imperfect nature exists to be corrected! As we learn to base our thinking upon present perfection, we shall begin to see the abundance of good for which we have hoped and prayed.
