Breaking the chain of aggressive suggestions

What If?

The question "what if?" is one of evil's subtle tools. What if this or that should happen? What if I don't get well soon? What if I can't find a job? Such suggestions would keep our thought in a state of perpetual fear. The remedy lies in turning away from the trouble, whatever it may be, and centering thought on God's all-power, which heals.

When error presents its suggestions, shouldn't we say, "All right, what if God is all-power, all-presence, always taking care of me?" The result then can only be perfection, illimitable good. This is the only kind of legitimate "what if?"
