The voice within

You’ve probably heard it—that voice that tells you that you shouldn’t do a particular thing, or that says you’ll need to take this direction, or that. When you have listened, you may have found that something you thought was right, was not the right thing to do after all, and you were saved from a lot of grief.  

I’ve learned through Christian Science that God, divine Mind, is always communicating to us, and that we are God’s ideas. And Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy states, “The intercommunication is always from God to His idea, man” (p. 284). The “voice within” is evidence of this. It is spiritual intuition, that calm, clear sense of God’s direction, coming as the Christ, the divine message that is always speaking to human consciousness. 

The Bible is full of instances where receptive listeners saw God’s direction made manifest in their lives. In First Kings 19 we read about Elijah, and the time when he saw the wind tear apart the rocks on the mountain, felt a strong earthquake, and saw a fire. But we read that the Lord was not in the wind, the earthquake, or the fire. Then Elijah hears “a still small voice.”
