The Strength of Spirit

We need strength at all times, but where does our strength, either moral or physical, come from? Where can we find strength in time of need? Is it something within ourselves to be summoned by exerting our will? Is it a property of matter? The answer is given in the words of the Psalmist: "Ascribe ye strength unto God....The God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people." Ps. 68:34, 35;

Christian Science reiterates the Bible teaching that God is Spirit, and it proves that in His allness is found every right idea, including strength. Strength is not found in matter or in human thinking. The strength of Spirit, God, is His active power unfolding His divine universe of spiritual ideas in infinite beauty and goodness. He does not have to use His strength to resist or endure evil, for there is nothing besides Him. Evil, in absolute fact, is neither real nor powerful, for Spirit, God, is omnipotent and omnipresent. The strength of Spirit is exercised in inexhaustible and unwearying support and maintenance of its limitless creation.
