WHOLEHEARTED RELIANCE ON GOD

Recognizing God's ability and willingness to bless those who rely completely upon Him in all circumstances, Solomon declared (Prov. 3:5, 6): "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Down through the years those who have heeded this wise man's precept have found blessings infinite in times of mental and physical distress.

Obeying the divine rule of trusting God absolutely in his teaching and practice of truth, Christ Jesus evidenced a definite singleness of purpose. He defined the position of all who would follow him truly in expressing man's unity with Truth and Love when he said (Matt. 6: 24): "No man can serve two masters. ... Ye cannot serve God and mammon." The Saviour's singleness of purpose stemmed from his knowledge of God, Mind, as the one primal cause and of man as Mind's idea. This spiritual understanding, enabling him to destroy sickness, overcome evil, and raise the dead, was proof of his Messiahship and oneness with God.
