The Bible, which was written for the most part by seers, prophets, and holy men who knew the barrenness of great tracts of land in Judea, has many references to water and rain. These individuals recognized the value of water and gave thanks and praise to God for it. They knew that all good is supplied by the creator of the universe, who ever tenderly provides for all His creation.

Jesus taught the multitudes about this same loving God and Father and gave them proofs of His infinite protection. In countless instances he demonstrated that good is ever present and instantly available. He gave assurance to mankind that our Father meets its every need with infinite supply.

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, centuries later brought this assurance to humanity again through many proofs. She has through her writings lifted the thought of all who turn to her teachings to an understanding of God's omnipotence and His unfailing love. She has set forth this great fact in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" where she writes (p. 494): "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need. It is not well to imagine that Jesus demonstrated the divine power to heal only for a select number or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good."
