The melting effect of Truth

The ninety-seventh Psalm has a powerful thing to say about "melt": "The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth." Ps. 97:5. And Amos likewise tells us of the great melting power of the Lord. He says: "The Lord God of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt." Amos 9:5.

Thinking of the hills and the land as representing mortal consciousness and materiality, one finds a tremendous power in these two references. At one time the six-month-old child of someone very near and dear to me was extremely sick. The Psalm reference flooded my thought. In my prayers, I held to it the whole day, thinking of the great power of God to melt the fear and false belief that would enslave this child and call her a victim of material circumstances. By nightfall the whole congestion had melted away, and the child was completely healed.
