“There is to-day danger of repeating the offence of the Jews by limiting the Holy One of Israel and asking: ‘Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?’ What cannot God do?” (Science and Health, page 135)
God is infinite and all-powerful. He has the ability to do all things and there is nothing that is too hard for Him to carry out. He is also infinite Love, pure goodness, and perfect wisdom. Everything that God would do, He can do. And everything that He would do is good, loving, and right.
Let’s not limit God. Let’s not let our eyes and thoughts stay so focused on the “why nots” that physical senses would present to us. Material obstructions and restrictions and limitations are no match for infinite Spirit, the Life that is All and eternal and ours. God doesn’t back down or get discouraged by a presentation calling itself human circumstances or even material laws. He is the Law itself and He is not concerned. He knows what He can do and we should know it, too.
We must honor God with our trust and not darken that with doubts. God can furnish a table in the wilderness, can provide us with sustenance and ideas and inspirations in the midst of what seem to be our darkest hours, our deepest need. And His table is not merely a place with a few crumbs upon it. His table is a sumptuous spread of beauty and goodness, filling and fulfilling, satisfying and entirely natural for divine Love’s infinite grace to provide.
