Sustained by God

From the December 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal

First appeared as a Web Original on September 22, 2014

It often seems that people’s needs are far from being met. But Christian Science explains how the right perception of God meets all our needs, overcoming any sense of lack with the understanding that God is guiding and supplying each and every one of His children. This is the Science of God’s ever-present goodness. This truth brings the proof of God’s unfailing supply when our prayer is founded on the rock, Christ.

Christ Jesus met every need he encountered. To take just one example, when Jesus fed the thousands with a handful of bread and a few fish on two separate occasions (see Matthew 14:13–21 and Mark 8:1–9), he was demonstrating God’s law of supply. This demonstration was founded on Jesus’ understanding that God is our creator, and that the infinitely sustaining supply of that all-knowing source is always present. He proved that reality is spiritual: the kingdom of heaven, in which good is infinite, never lacking.

It was a call to see my friend and his family as completely sustained by God, never for an instant outside His allness.
