A Christian Science perspective: We can know and trust that God is the only power in control
By Ellen J. Wolf
Today’s world could certainly use more of the confidence of the ancient psalm writer who sang, “For the kingdom is the Lord’s: and he is the governor among the nations” (Psalms 22:28). Clearly, this man had so much faith that God, the omniscient and omnipotent Mind, was in control and meeting his and all of humanity’s needs, that he rejoiced through song. What an example!
Whether in business or government, if we want to witness God, good, as the one true power, we can. We need only look to our common Father for help and be willing to do our part in exercising brotherly kindness and gentleness to all.
As we do, like the Psalmist, we’ll also feel the assurance of divine Love’s control. We too can find the peace conveyed in another powerful hymn:
Then let us know no fear,
Our King is ever near;
Our stay and fortress strong,
Our strength, our hope, our song;
His kingdom is forever.
(Frederic W. Root, “Christian Science Hymnal,” No. 10)
