Reliance On God!

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!

    2 Chronicles 32:8 With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles.

    These were Hezekiah’s words when besieged by the Assyrian king. It shows once again that reliance on the All power of God, trusting it and the sure good results. Sennacherib was trusting his army but like David, Hezekiah relied on God and the victory was on his side!

    It’s not enough to voice how much we trust God; when something comes up, prove that trust by remaining calm and listening for His comfort, care and direction. Is God not always at hand?

    Thank you for this post.

    Sennacherib’s trust in his army, in his own strategic ability, and even in the love of his children, proved to be entirely misguided.

    This reminds me of my life before coming here: I always felt I was one bad day away from it all unravelling. That turned out to be true, as it was for Sennacherib, and as it will be for anyone placing their trust in anything but God.

    I am grateful for that “bad” day, because it turned out to be a great day…the day I began listening and learning to be receptive to “His comfort, care and direction.” It is now so clear that God absolutely is always at hand. Thank you!
