Spiritual reasoning

The book of Nehemiah in the Bible tells about Nehemiah bravely leading the effort to rebuild the destroyed wall around Jerusalem. As the book points out, there was a great deal of resistance to building the wall, much of it led by Sanballat and Geshem. At one point Nehemiah tells us: “Sanballat and Geshem sent to me, saying, ‘Come, let us meet together among the villages in the plain of Ono.’ But they thought to do me harm. So I sent messengers to them, saying, ‘I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and go down to you?’ But they sent me this message four times, and I answered them in the same manner” (6:2–4, New King James Version).

Most of us have probably experienced times when, through our study and practice of Christian Science, we feel with absolute conviction that God is infinitely loving, good, and all-inclusive. During these moments of spiritual inspiration, God’s power fills our thought, and we know with a certainty that God is governing our experience. Like Nehemiah, we are confident in our direction.
