Many human problems appear as "always" problems. We hear people complain of being always in the wrong place, always poor, always sick, or always in some kind of trouble. But the Christ, the true idea of God, honors no such complaint. In the Bible account of Christ Jesus at the pool of Bethesda, a man complained that at the times when the waters were supposed to have a healing effect someone else always got into the water before him. He thought the healing was not for him. But Jesus had a different viewpoint. Knowing "that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?" And paying no heed to his "always" complaint, he said, "Rise, take up thy bed, and walk." John 5:6, 8; And the man did.
This man had been crippled for thirty-eight years. The Bible tells us that Jesus healed a woman who had had an issue of blood twelve years, a man blind from birth, and many others. Before calling Lazarus from the tomb, he spoke aloud to God, saying, "I knew that thou hearest me always." 11:42; And of his own relationship to God, he said, "The Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him." 8:29;
God does hear us always; it is His nature as divine Love. And if we live to do those things that express His ever-presence and His all-power, we find we are able to silence in our human lives those things that deny Him.
