"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free"

"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." These are the words of Jesus (John 8:32). The declaration of a spiritual truth, and the acceptance and realization of it, are indeed powerful. This was proved in a healing in our family.

As we lived some miles from the nearest city, when I went shopping there I would often visit members of our family who lived close by, before returning home. One day I felt drawn to visit our eldest daughter's home, as she was expecting a child very soon.

I found her somewhat upset. She had been to see the doctor, and was advised that she had an unusual amount of water weight, and that it would not be possible for her to deliver for some time. She had been given a strict diet and told to return in one week. She had already called the Christian Science practitioner who had been praying with her during her pregnancy. The practitioner had shared this with her: "I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and deliver you" (Isa. 46:4). This helped us both to realize that God was in control.
