"Thou shalt be secure"

"Thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety. Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid." Job 11:18, 19; These stirring words deserve the careful attention of everyone searching for security.

In the eyes of mortals, security appears all too often to be tauntingly out of reach. Yet the pressing uncertainties and the ruthless upheavals of materialism demand that each individual not only cultivate but actually demonstrate security in daily life. Christian Science, with the Bible as its authority, teaches how this can be done.

The Bible abounds in many convincing proofs of security. Elisha, for example, was once sought out by a woman in desperate straits. She was a widow, left moneyless; and now, to satisfy a debt, her two sons were being threatened with enslavement. The situation was tense. But there was majestic calm in Elisha's simple question, "Tell me, what hast thou in the house?" II Kings 4:2; It was as though ever so gently Elisha was encouraging her to look inward, not outward, to find security.
