"The inspiration of the Almighty"

Moments of inspiration assure us of the existence of a divine power and give us glimpses of that new heaven and new earth of which John spoke in Revelation (21:1).

Inspiration, however, does not come without effort. It has to be earned, it usually follows a humble, consecrated searching to find the Christ, Truth. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 84), "Acquaintance with the Science of being enables us to commune more largely with the divine Mind, to foresee and foretell events which concern the universal welfare, to be divinely inspired,—yea, to reach the range of fetterless Mind."

All of us long to be inspired and to feel the heavenly exaltation that gives us a foretaste of eternity, but inspiration should not be confused with mere elation. The latter is but an emotional experience. The former is deep and lasting.
