SUPPLY IS EVER PRESENT
Through the study of Christian Science we learn that supply is eternally present, even before the human need for it appears. As our understanding of the truth of spiritual being increases, we discover that omniactive and omnipresent God, divine Mind, ceaselessly supplies all our needs through spiritual ideas.
On page 307 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy states, "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies." This becomes plain as the limited material sense of man is corrected by the understanding of the spiritual fact that "now are we the sons of God" (I John 3:2). When thought is thus illumined, false beliefs are dispelled as naturally and as effortlessly as wrong figures are replaced with correct ones when the rule of mathematics is understood. Such illumination is inevitably accompanied by improved human conditions, just as the use of the right figures brings the correct answer to a mathematical problem.
Does anyone doubt the power of Spirit, God, to solve a problem of so-called lack? Then let him turn without reserve to Christ Jesus' immortal words in the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:3), "Blessed are the poor in spirit: for their's is the kingdom of heaven." Spiritual ideas are real and tangible to the inspired thought, and as we refuse to identify ourselves as impoverished, discordant, disappointed mortals and become truly "poor in spirit" by acknowledging our need for the things of God, false beliefs are erased and a more satisfying and comprehensive expression of spiritual ideas is seen; for poverty in any form, whether it be lack of health, supply, home, or friends, is but a phase of the false sense of man—is the failure to realize that man is the idea of Mind and reflects the substance that is God. Therefore, material lack is evidence of spiritual penury. Christian Science, the revelation of Truth to this age, has come to struggling humanity with the assurance that God, infinite good, is the only Mind and that man, God's image and likeness, reflects the divine affluence in all its spiritual perfection.
