But There Is A God In Heaven That Revealeth Secrets

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    Dan 2:28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days.

    Indecision used to be one of the most troubling mesmeric suggestions that came whenever there was a decision to be made. This brought much anxiety; but the gradual trusting that “there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets” and other truths like “I can do all things through Christ” wiped away those cruel false suggestions. The Christ, the Divine manifestation of God, is forever near to make and reveal our right decisions, as well us to give us more light to understand whatever is needed! Instead of going back and forth with what is right to do and dealing with the anguish of possible mistakes, the quick turning to God, with the consistent trust and reliance on All Knowing God has brought much peace for me to be able to stop the panic from indecision, and in the calmness hear what God is saying.

    Thank you for this post. I have been thinking about Daniel and how he had the confidence to turn to God without even knowing the dream that the king was talking about. Daniel expected God to reveal what was necessary for him to know. 1828 Webster says that expectation differs from hope because … “it is founded on some reasons which render the event probable.” Daniel already had a relationship with God and as was stated by another post, he had put off the “old man” of pagan thinking that surrounded him. I am learning that expectation is an important part of prayer because we are already one with God and as His image and likeness naturally receive his Love when we are obedient and open to His goodness. It is done… “so be calm, quiet and patient while waiting for the right answer or result to be revealed to us….” (from Dede’s article in the September 2017 issue of Love is the Liberator).
