Free—under God's government
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
The thought of being governed by an all-wise, loving God may seem appealing, yet unrelated to the realities of day-to-day existence. When circumstances claim to wield authority in our lives and to force us into certain directions, God can certainly seem distant. But God isn't distant, precisely because He is God. He is omnipresent, supreme Spirit, who governs His creation wisely and maintains man's freedom. The challenge is to discern and prove this.
A limited, materialistic sense of life can't perceive the reality of God's nearness. But spiritual receptivity, something we can all cultivate through humble prayer and greater purity, does comprehend God's love for man and the tangibleness of His blessings. And this opens the way to progress. It enables us to gain at least some degree of dominion over the circumstances that would imprison us. Regardless of the severity of a situation, the spiritual fact of man's inseparability from God does have authority over the impositions of carnal thinking.
Are problems barriers to us?
