God's perfect control

To prevent frustrations and costly mistakes, intelligent control and timing are very important in this accelerating world!

Christian Science assures us that harmonious control need not be exceptional. Such control is perfectly natural as one turns to God. The Bible instructs us, "Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee." Job 22:21. Acquainting ourselves with God, we know Him as divine Mind, as supreme wisdom governing harmoniously His entire creation. Man is inseparable from God as the full expression of His inexhaustible qualities.

Christ Jesus declared, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:24. God is not in matter, for He is not matter. He exists instead of matter. Spiritual sense, which is inherent in human consciousness, brings us the secure feeling that God Himself is truly the source of our very intelligence, life, and substance. This sense opens our thought to God's goodness and love for His creation so that we can experience in our lives the operation of His law of harmony. Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, writes, "Mind's control over the universe, including man, is no longer an open question, but is demonstrable Science." Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 171.
