No human circumstance is beyond hope and healing. When the clamor of sickness, sin, discord, or failure comes with such urgency that it overcomes our sense of good, we can be lifted out of fear and despair by trusting in God and His all-inclusive and impartial love. Health and peace will be restored when we accept the Scriptural assurance (Isa. 45:22), "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."
Mrs. Eddy explains God's dependable healing power thus (Science and Health, p. 287): "God being everywhere and all-inclusive, how can He be absent or suggest the absence of omnipresence and omnipotence? How can there be more than all?"
Since God's gifts of health, happiness, and abundance are ever available to mankind, what makes the world's problems appear so baffling and relentless? It is ignorance of the true facts—an ignorance that brings on uneasiness and fear. The pagan idolatry of vengeful gods is one of the results of this ignorance. Through the ages the superstitious belief in evil has insinuated itself into the thinking of even those who profess to worship only the one good God.
