Radical Reliance Is Faith


Mrs. Eddy, on page 167 of Science and Health, states, “Only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific healing power be realized.” It sounds rather simple, but I have come to realize that what I used to do years ago was to declare the Truth, but somehow I was holding firmly onto the lie that was so tempting.

Radical reliance is implicit faith in the Truth that we declare; so it’s quite expedient, that after declaring the Truth, from time to time, check to see if you are still holding onto the lie that you want to be rid of!

This week I heard the Director of the series “The Chosen,” and I was so impressed by his faith, and all that it has taken for him to produce this series. He talked about a song called “Faithful Now.” Part of it says:

I am holding onto faith

‘Cause I know You’ll make a way

And I don’t always understand

And I don’t always get to see

But I will believe it, I will believe it

‘Cause You make mountains move

You make giants fall

And You use songs of praise

To shake prison walls

And I will speak to my fear

I will preach to my doubt

That You were faithful then

You’ll be faithful now.

It touched me, and it also reminded me of a verse that I have heard in this church many times, “Hitherto has the Lord helped us and hitherto he will.” So let us be clear to pray, trust God, and keep gaining more conviction in His supremacy and His ability to destroy all error in our thinking.
