Pain can be silenced

Knowing that we live in Spirit, God, not matter, is what gives us power over pain.

People are looking for a way to be free of pain. They may echo Jeremiah’s lament, “Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuseth to be healed?” (Jeremiah 15:18). But other Bible passages offer convincing hope that pain can be overcome. For example, the book of Exodus records God as saying, “I am the Lord that healeth thee” (15:26). I have found a beautiful solution to pain through my study of Christian Science, which shows me that I am the loved child of God. This is not wishful thinking but a recognition of the presence of God’s harmony in my life—and it is based in spiritual law. 

Describing our permanent oneness with God, infinite good, the Bible tells us, “In him we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28). This spiritual law governs everyone, for we are all created by God to represent His beauty, goodness, and peace. The truth of spiritual creation places man (the true, spiritual identity of everyone) forever in the realm of God. As His creation, man is always perfect, manifesting perfect health and harmonious being under the law of God. Nothing needs to be or can be added to this expression of God. And when we understand and trust our omnipotent God, we need not fear or experience pain.
