A number of years ago it became mandatory for me to drive an automobile. However, I was very fearful about driving. I did prayerful work on this matter but to no avail.

One day I had just finished reading the Lesson-Sermon when I decided to reread it in order to find the correct solution to this problem.

The lesson included the account of Moses and the serpent (see Ex. 4:1-5). Pondering this account, I was led to read an article in the Sentinel that dealt with the same incident. The author of the article stated that when Moses, in obedience to God, cast the serpent down—cast the lie or error out of his consciousness—it became a rod or source of strength, a protection, to him. Here was what I needed and would use. I held to these truths, and when the serpent, fear, arose in my consciousness, I cast it out knowing that God was the only power and presence. Soon I was mastering the automobile instead of letting it master me, and I passed the test for my driver's license.
