Certainty of Healing
Christ Jesus, saying to the man with the withered hand, "Stretch forth thy hand," Luke 6: 10; knew that the man was bound to be healed. When he stood before the tomb of Lazarus, after Lazarus had been dead four days, and cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth," John 11:43; he was sure that Lazarus would walk out. On what was his certainty based?
He knew, as Christian Science teaches, that man and all creation are included in the structure of spiritual law, which proceeds from and is exactly sustained by divine Principle, God. Where there is law, and intelligent understanding of it, results can be predicted. This is true, in a relative sense, even in the sphere of natural science. Physicists do not have to bolster their faith in the law of gravity daily!
Certainty of healing is to be found in an abiding recognition that we live in the realm of Truth, or spiritual law, where God, supremely intelligent, loving, and omnipotent Mind, is the only lawgiver and therefore the guarantor of ever-present health in His creation. This is the realm we enter when we pray, especially when we pray with the understanding that Christian Science gives of the infinity, or allness, of Truth and the consequent nothingness of every claim of error, or evil.
