Daily Watch for the week of August 27th – September 3rd, 2017
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
420 — WATCH lest you become too concerned over your own spiritual progress. We must learn to have patience and to wait on God, since Mrs. Eddy once said, “In proportion to your growth will you see things.”
Jesus recommended that we consider ourselves as lilies that grow naturally. Let us realize that progress is the law of God, — it is continuous and inevitable. Mrs. Eddy once said, “To be over-anxious regarding one’s own progress is to acknowledge a person apart from God.” When biscuits are placed in the oven, do they worry lest the heat fail to bake them?
To The Watchers
from Watches, Prayers, and Arguments, as given by Mary Baker Eddy, page 49
“Hear, O Israel, for the Lord, our God, is one God.”
You are not to come in your own name to pray.
You are not to control any mind.
You are to come only in the divine strength, and know that God will rule and does, and that hypnotism and evil minds cannot, and do not, control men or governments.
All power is God, good.
This is my only formula to Christian Scientists for prayer, and God will give you faith that will remove mountains.
