    This week’s lesson sermon begins with the Golden Text of Psalm 114:7:
    “Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob.”

    And the lesson continues with so many references to God “which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:” (Ps. 146:6) that it is a wonderful treatment for the current state of affairs on this planet whether it be extreme weather or other disturbances.

    “But the Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.” Habakkuk 2:20.

    This is a very timely lesson, thank you.

    It’s uncanny how God provides what we need, even months in advance of when we need it. This lesson was written in May.

    This Golden Text is a sharp rebuke to all “earthly” tendencies, such as materialism, envy, malice, hatred. These “earthly” states of thought tremble and fall in the presence of the truth. Jesus stilled the storm by rebuking the materialistic thought that condoned (caused?) it. Mrs. Eddy stopped approaching storms by looking into the sky and seeing only the face of God in control. These are invaluable lessons, for we have the same God, before which all limited, false, materialistic beliefs tremble and lose their influence over us. As Mrs. Eddy writes in S&H (368): “Error is a coward before Truth.” Anything unlike God, good, is error, and that includes damaging storms as well as disease.

    We have a tremendous power available in our heavenly Father. We really can thank Jesus, his disciples, and Mrs. Eddy for showing us what it is, and what it does for us.
