From the September 1948 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In revealing spiritual man as His manifestation, God simultaneously decrees the irrevocable law of unfolding good as eternally sustaining and maintaining the perfection of His expression. In the first chapter of Genesis we read (1:29), "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."

On page 508 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," we find the explanation of this meat which God is constantly giving to man. Here Mary Baker Eddy writes, "The seed within itself is the pure thought emanating from divine Mind."

As we accept Mind's pure thought, we find ourselves strengthened and sustained. This is natural, for as Mrs. Eddy says in her book "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 307): "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for to-morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment. What a glorious inheritance is given to us through the understanding of omnipresent Love! More we cannot ask: more we do not want: more we cannot have. This sweet assurance is the 'Peace, be still' to all human fears, to suffering of every sort."
