God's Eternal, Infinite Provision

The question of sufficient provision is constantly recurring to humanity. In Christian Science one finds a demonstrable and satisfying answer. It is necessarily a spiritual answer and relates adequately to both reason and inspiration.

This Science teaches that God, divine Mind, creates, sustains, and governs His idea, man. Since God is All, He knows only completeness. If He could create man and then leave him to provide precariously for himself, His work would be incomplete and not in accordance with the unceasing and invariable tenderness expressed by the Father-Mother Love.

God's spiritual universe, including man, is complete and intact. Nothing can be added nor anything taken away. The Scriptural summary of this is found in Genesis: "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." Gen 1:31; In human experience, however, the suggestion is always coming up in one form or another that God's work is not complete. Mortals seem to have either too much or too little. There may be an abundance of money but a lack of good health or vice versa. Lack, though, by whatever name it may be known, is simply the manifestation of ignorance and lack of application of the ever-present law of supply, or spiritual substance. The necessity is to be aware of just what true supply is and how to lay hold upon it.
