"Thy Maker is thine husband"

A Christian Scientist who desired to gain the right concept of marriage wrote to a Christian Science practitioner for counsel. The practitioner referred the earnest young woman to the words in the book of Isaiah (54:5), "Thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name," explaining that while a human husband is rightly a companion, a provider, a helper, one who encourages and shows unselfish affection, it is most helpful to understand that God is all of these things to His children, multiplied innumerable times.

We may say that God, divine Mind, and His ideas are wedded in eternal union and that He provides man with all that is needed for completeness, happiness, peace, and fulfillment. Mortal sense argues incompleteness to humanity, but the Bible, in such beautiful assurances as are found throughout the chapter from Isaiah already referred to, shows that a turning to God in the very face of the lie of incompleteness brings His kindness, provision, and protection into present view and experience.
