"HE MAKETH THE STORM A CALM"

The assurance of God's care contained in the Psalmist's words, "He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still" (Ps. 107:29), affords healing balm and consolation for one beset with a storm of conflicting mortal fears and beliefs. It is evident that these words apply not only to winds and high waves, but to the rising and ebbing tides of conflicting human beliefs. Very simply the Psalmist sets forth the remedy, that God is able to overcome any seeming power opposed to Him. "They cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses," he says (verse 28).

In a corroborative statement from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy says (p. 99), "The calm, strong currents of true spirituality, the manifestations of which are health, purity, and self-immolation, must deepen human experience, until the beliefs of material existence are seen to be a bald imposition, and sin, disease, and death give everlasting place to the scientific demonstration of divine Spirit and to God's spiritual, perfect man."
