“The more difficult seems the material condition to be overcome by Spirit, the stronger should be our faith and the purer our love.” (Science and Health, page 410)
Our challenges may seem overwhelming, and our strength depleted at times, but the significant thing to remember here is that this seeming trying material condition is not being overcome by human strength. It is Spirit that does the overcoming, the dissolving, the saving.
Divine Spirit’s promise of Allness, of potency, of rightness releases us from a personal sense of struggling and fighting, of being humanly strong and patient and fearless. We are not the source of healing, nor can we be. God, divine Spirit, the omnipotent All that is Love, is caring for us, is asserting Truth actively where that lie appears to be, and is showing us our safety and perfection and peace. It is not human effort that overcomes, nor is our strength of faith and purity of love drawn from human resources.
The very Spirit that protects and defends, renews and revives, is also the Source of our faith and love. We are able to draw upon that ever-present goodness and power, to claim and utilize the very qualities of God on our own behalf. It is because He is faithful that we can reflect that fortitude. It is because His love is pure and perfect and unconditional, that we can wrap ourselves in that very love and breathe a sigh of grateful relief.
The harder the battle may seem to appear, the greater the Truth that beckons us to claim it. We are more than simply hopeful, we are expectant, we are buoyant! Spirit is here to reveal our Life more fully, more gloriously, and we might as well be at the ready for the victory now!
