"Why is thy faith in God's great love so small?"Hymnal, No. 390. I have always loved pondering this question found in a hymn in the Christian Science Hymnal. The question always brings me up short, causing me to search my heart. It rebukes the mental debris of doubt and discouragement, while at the same time giving assurance of God's great love for His creation.
Even when an individual has been privileged to witness blessing after blessing, healing upon healing, still the temptation to worry or become fearful when a challenging situation arises is not uncommon. The human experience can be very challenging—at times requiring more intelligence or strength than we may feel we have. The loss of a loved one or a dramatic change in one's career or fear of future changes or even fear of the unknown can seem to rob us of our peace and well-being. One may even wonder, "What is to become of me?"
What comfort and reassurance it brings to realize that no problem, however great, is beyond the ability of God to resolve. The spiritual fact is that nothing is really going on outside of God. All, in reality, is ever under His tender caretaking and provision.
