"TRUST IN THE LORD"

The third chapter of Proverbs has this arresting advice (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." The student of Christian Science learns early in his experience to depend upon God, Spirit, and not upon material remedies for the healing of physical disease. To the materialist this may seem a difficult thing to do, but to the one who has been healed through spiritual means alone, there is no longer a desire for other methods or faith in their efficacy. His healing and its accompanying mental uplifting have convinced him that God is indeed the only healer of disease.

The writer of Proverbs, however, tells us to acknowledge Him in all our ways, and the student soon learns that his understanding of God gives him not only a sure remedy for physical ills, but a solution for every problem that may confront him. In some cases he finds it easy to turn to God, but this may not always be so. The belief that mortals have minds of their own which enable them to make decisions for themselves would sometimes prevent one from reaping the reward of having God direct his paths.
