Using God's law of protection

Safety Now

Calamities loom ahead if we continue to identify ourselves as mortals, subject to material belief. Greed threatens to rob and hatred to kill if we find no protection beyond that offered by military pacts or local police. Food shortages project disaster for whole nations if we look to the physical universe alone to feed us. Yet despite all these threats, we can find safety through spiritual inspiration.

The divine Mind which is God impartially guides and protects each individual in practical ways just as surely as, for example, it did Abraham, Moses, Peter, and Paul. Divine Mind shows each of us not only what we need to do to disarm each threat but also how to do it. We need, however, to acknowledge Mind's all-wisdom and seek it. We need to silence the intellectual egotism of a belief in a personal intelligence separate from God. God's children can have no other Mind, nor can they be separated from Him in any way. As we begin to recognize this and seek inspiration from Mind, we find it. Then we need only follow Mind's commands to find that spiritual reality understood does indeed provide human protection.

God is Love—all-powerful, ever present, tenderly caring for each of us. When we acknowledge that Love is real and present, we feel Love's embrace and receive Love's inspiration. This protects us humanly, no matter what the danger may seem to be.
