Have you ever faced a daunting task? Did you ever wonder how to proceed, or if success were even possible? Many biblical figures faced seemingly insurmountable challenges including Joshua. He was tasked with taking up where Moses left off, and bringing the children of Israel into the Promised Land. The Golden Text contains one fragment of God’s message of encouragement to Joshua. The whole passage reads, “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”  

In some ways, feeling that God is with us wherever we go, conjures images of God following us around, but that’s not quite right. In this Lesson, we’ll see that God is wherever we go, because God is All-in-all, the only power or presence. We can’t be without or apart from God because since God is infinite, we exist in Him and can never be outside of Him. But it often seems like we are nowhere near God, much less in Him. In those times, we will find that despite our seeming distance from God, His messages are always able to get through to us. God commanded Joshua, and promised He would be present to help. In discussing this passage from Joshua, Eighteenth Century Baptist Scholar John Gill quotes the Targum of Jonathan, “for thy help is the Word of the Lord thy God.” One of the ways God’s Word reaches us is through “angel thoughts.” As you study this Lesson, take note of how often angels play a role.

Responsive Reading
The psalmist has no problem feeling God’s presence. He is totally devoted to God and expects to avail himself of God’s presence at every turn. He promises to think of God first thing in the morning and is aware of the importance of being earnest in prayer, and of being in a proper state of mind in order to receive God’s blessing. His prayer isn’t nebulous, but rather pinpoint accurate. Methodist theologian Adam Clarke (c. 1762-1832) points out that the phrase, “I will direct my prayer unto thee” means to take aim like an archer takes aim, and then looking up to see if he’s hit the mark. Prayers with right aims yield quicker results. Presbyterian theologian Albert Barnes (1798-1870) takes a slightly different view than Clarke: he writes the original words for “direct my prayer” mean to “properly place in a row, to put in order, to arrange, e.g. to place wood on the altar.” This would indicate that special care should be taken in one’s approach to prayer. It isn’t casual or flippant, but solemn and sacred. With either interpretation, this prayer is not meant to be haphazard.

The psalmist is also aware that thousands of God’s angels are always at hand to guide him. “The chariots of God are twenty thousand:” i.e. an innumerable company. Barnes says “the original language denotes a very great number; the idea is that even “that” great number was doubled.” He also comments on the phrase, “holy habitation” writing that: “The design of the psalmist seems to be to take us at once up to God; to let us see what he is in his holy home; to conduct us into his very presence, that we may see him as he is. What a man is in his own home—when we get near to him; when we look upon him, not on great or state occasions, when he is abroad, and assumes appearances befitting his rank and office, but in his own house; as he is constantly. … In other words, the more we see of God—the more we become intimately acquainted with his real nature—the more evidence we shall find that he is benevolent and kind.”

In 1st Chronicles, take note that God doesn’t have a portion of greatness, power or glory, but has it completely—“thine is the greatness, and the power, and the glory…. There is nothing to be compared to God. He is All-in-all.

Section 1: God Is Real and Knowable
Sometimes it amazes me how little people seem to know about God. Even those who claim to believe in God often continue to cling to the old traditional views that God is something “up there” either manipulating or ignoring the human condition.  Some people are going back to pantheism believing that God is “in everything.”  There are those who call themselves, “spiritual but not religious;” and those who outright reject God altogether.  I find that those who reject God are often not really rejecting God, but the religious institutions and the hypocrisy they’ve grown up with.

Then there’s Christian Science.  Christian Science as discovered and taught by Mary Baker Eddy reveals God as infinite Principle who can be understood, and demonstrated in our present experience.  The psalmist was intimately acquainted with God.  He urges us to sing to God—joyfully acknowledging Him as our salvation (B1).  Notice that he doesn’t tell us to sheepishly hide our faith, but to sing out and make a joyful noise.  To me, that means to “let it rip” as if singing in a shower at the top of your lungs, not caring who hears it.  Commentators note that this psalm is meant for public use, so we shouldn’t confine our faith to the privacy of our homes, but share it with the world.  We are often too timid about our prayers and faith, because we are self-conscious about what those around us might think.  Sure, there may be those who’d think we were nuts, but the Bible calls anyone who doesn’t believe in God a “fool.” (B2).  The word “fool” comes from the Hebrew word nabal, which according to Adam Clarke means, “an empty fellow, a contemptible person, a villain.”  Modern thinker David Guzik, points out that even those who theoretically believe in God often deny Him as of practical use in daily life.  He quotes nineteenth century Baptist preacher Alexander Macleran: “In effect, we say that there is no God when we shut Him up in a far-off heaven, and never think of Him as concerned in our affairs.”

But Jeremiah promises that God will cause His people to “return to [Him] with their whole heart” (B3).  Even the intelligentsia, who often relegate belief in God to obsolete superstition, will be brought back to God.  No human wisdom is adequate, and nothing is worthy of glory but the understanding of God (B4).  Even if we think we’re so out of practice or so far away from God that it seems we will never be able to make it up—even then—God is thinking of us (B5).  Even if we stop thinking of Him, He never stops thinking of us.  All we have to do is seek Him with our whole heart, with complete sincerity and without dissimulation.

Our textbook points out that materially based thinking calls God “unknowable” but “Christian Science brings God much nearer to man, and makes Him better known as the All-in-all, forever near” (S1).  Isn’t that comforting?  God isn’t lost in a morass of intellectual reasoning; He is right with us, forever near.  Of course, if we think of God in anthropomorphic terms, it seems quite impossible that God could be with us wherever we go.  Here Christian Science steps in and defines God as Spirit, Life, Truth, Love (S2).  These synonyms for God aren’t limited to finite forms any more than the principles of mathematics are, but are incorporeal and as readily available.  The bottom line is that everything real has its origin in God.  The true understanding of God, being spiritual, begins to destroy everything that seems to lead in other directions.  Our Leader tells us that as Spirit is understood, the belief in anything opposed to Spirit is given up (S3).  How could it be otherwise?  Understanding the allness of God leads to the inevitable conclusion of the nothingness of error (S4).  If we really take the time to contemplate God in this way, we will see that there is never anything to fear, because God is All.  This understanding gives us a sense that He is ever with us, but in fact, we realize that in truth, we are always in Him.

Section 2: God Is Not Manlike
The belief of an anthropomorphic God is deeply entrenched in world thought.  The mythological gods of the Greeks and Romans, and even those before that, were little more than imaginary humans with super powers.  They manipulated mankind like pieces on a chessboard, and were subject to all the foibles of human character.  The Scriptures tell us, “God is not a man…” (B6).  He doesn’t have the traits of an earthly personality.  A major point is that God is not changeable (B7).  It’s sometimes hard for us to conceive of “changeless being.”  In human experience it’s an axiom that the only thing one can count on is change.  But God changes not.  God doesn’t need to change His mind, because He is Mind, and is always right.

Isaiah depicts God as yearning for the people to listen and understand Him (B8).  It’s almost like a parent imploring a child, “Are you listening to me?”  It is essential to know that God is not modeled after man, but the other way around.  Since ancient times, statues, drawings, and paintings have turned gods into mortal forms (B9).  Every mythical god has a physical description and as Christianity came to the fore, the mistaken practice of turning statuary and icons into objects of worship continued.  These practices have been called superstitious and that’s a fairly accurate appraisal.  True Christianity doesn’t teach any such thing.  God isn’t a person; God is Love (B10).

Mrs. Eddy carried that thought further to the understanding that God is infinite Principle (S5).  Now she concludes her statement by calling God “Person” with a capital “P.”  This could be misunderstood, so elsewhere she explains that God is infinite Person, because He is One and Only. But He is not one of many persons, nor does he have a finite personality; nor does He have the whims of human character that go with it (S6).  She is clear that in Christian Science, nothing of a physical nature is attached to God.  She says, “mortals alone do this” (S7).

This is a significant distinction, because if we think of God in human terms, with a human-like personality, we may be doubtful about our prayers, because a human personality needs to be reminded of things, and can change its mind.  How can anyone count on a divine infinite Principle that’s changeable? (S8).  Mrs. Eddy writes that God is represented as a corporeal creator due to human ignorance, and for the same reason, man views himself as a physical entity.  So it’s a belief that feeds upon itself: if we believe God is physical, we believe that we are physical, and we think we are physical because we don’t understand God.  It’s a vicious cycle.  But Christian Science reverses it.  Christian Science starts with God as universal, infinite Principle, divine Love; and man, made in His image.  Understanding God aright enables us to understand ourselves aright.  Rather than God making man in His image, mortals have made God in their image (S9).  The human sense of things yields as we give up the material sense of personality and see that God and man are Principle and idea, leaving personality out of the question (S10).

Section 3: God’s Angels Always Meet Our Need
As mentioned earlier, sometimes it can seem as if we are very far from God, and that there is little chance of us reaching Him or Him reaching us.  But again, the Scriptures give us instruction. The psalmist asks, “Where can I go (escape) from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?” (B11).  There is no place we could ever be where God is not leading us and lighting our way to safety.  How is it that God can reach us even when we seem to be so far apart from Him?  First of all, the psalm clearly indicates that since there is no place we can go that is outside of God, rather than Him following us around, God is infinite, omnipresent Spirit, and we are actually in Him.  The angels of His presence break through the mesmerism that makes us believe we’re separated from Him.

Jacob was once in a situation that seemed to place him far from God (B12), or at least far from the comforts of home.  The story says he was alone, without shelter, and had to use stones for his pillow—pretty uncomfortable.  During the night, he dreamed of a ladder from heaven with angels going up and down, and he got the message that eventually he would return home and everything would be set right, along with the promise that wherever he went, God would be with him.  Jacob, may have thought that he was cast out on his own, but God revealed that there was no place in which His presence would not be there to guide and protect him.  The angels on the ladder were constantly active.  They never stopped, or slowed down.  This indicates that God’s ideas are always at hand whether we know it or not.  [Warren’s P.S. cites Cobbey Crisler’s insights about the graphic symbol of the Jacob’s ladder at Bethel and his revelation that God is omnipresent.]

Science and Health reaffirms that if God is All-in-all, it’s impossible to conceive of Him as anything less than “infinite Spirit or Mind” (S11).  Our Leader explains angels to be holy thoughts, winged with Love” (S12).  She confirms that even though the going may be slow, those angels are right with us guarding and guiding (S13). Then she defines angels as “God’s thoughts passing to man” (S14).  We are well aware that a large number of thoughts that come to us throughout the day are less than angelic.  We’re bombarded with ads, music, and images of sickness, disease, sin, and death.  Sometimes we tend to follow those images, and accept them as our own.  Consequently, we can begin to feel pretty far away from God.  But all the while, the angels of His presence are constantly going up and down “that ladder.”  These angel thoughts always lead us upward, away from material thinking to spiritual insight.  Mrs. Eddy urges us to give “earnest heed” to these divine messages (S15).  Let’s try that.  The Spirit is calling to us, “Pay attention!”  Let’s try listening to those angels.  Some people these days are on their Smartphones constantly.  They can’t put them down.  They text, or play games, or watch videos, or listen to music, or email throughout every other activity they are in.  [Let's pray for the intelligence of everyone behind a wheel that they do NOT drive distracted and dumb, using their Smartphones illegally.]   I’ve even seen some people working with one hand with their phone in the other.  How about taking the challenge instead of striving to spend every moment of our time undistracted in the here and now, in regular contact with those angels!

Section 4: Prayerful Communication with God
Those angel thoughts were constantly compelling our Master’s activities.  Eighteenth Century Baptist Scholar John Gill points out that Jesus’ return to Galilee (B13) wasn’t due to a natural love of his country or a fond desire of being there; “but was owing to the powerful impulse of the Holy Spirit, which was in him, and moved him to return thither….”  Jesus was in constant communication with God.  The Spirit impelled every move he made.  [By contrast “The disobedient make their moves before God make His, or make them too late to follow Him.” Misc. 117:29]  Luke tells us that after a full night of prayer, Jesus was moved to choose his disciples, and commenced healing multitudes of those in need. (B14).  The disciples could hardly help noticing that Jesus spent a large amount of his time in prayer, and naturally, they wanted to learn how to pray too (B15).  One of Jesus’ lessons on prayer was to avoid vain repetitions, and praying for show.  But rather, to pray secretly, because the fact is that God already answers your needs before you ask Him (B17).  This might sound contradictory to the earlier citations that tell us to let the world know about our faith.  Singing praises and being unashamed of your faith is different from praying to be seen of men.  The latter implies pride and arrogance.  When we sincerely pray, we shut out all the worldly interference [even materially-based knowledge from Smartphones], in order to be fully attentive to God, [infinite Mind’s angels].  Paul said whether praying (in private) or singing (in public) all prayer and praise should be grounded in understanding (B18).

As Jesus brought a new order of prayer to his generation, so, Mary Baker Eddy brought a new order of prayer to us.  As discussed in Section 2, we all know that the traditional ways of praying were often similar to petitioners requesting favors from royal courts.  Mrs. Eddy found that prayer had to be much more than that.  Prayer begins with an “absolute faith that all things are possible to God,—a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love” (S16).  She tells us that the old ways of praying—making requests to God—yield results due more to blind faith, than to understanding (S17).  This is another salient point.  True Scientific prayer isn’t just wishful thinking, or hoping for the best, asking God to do something, or even humanly reasoning things through.  Real Scientific prayer is understandingly, actively, humbly declaring what’s real.  Mrs. Eddy writes of Jesus’ prayers that they were “deep and conscientious protests of Truth.”  The healing power is the Christ—the activity of God right here.  Angels guard and guide us, and the Christ heals.  Jesus demonstrated this better than anyone else (S18).

When we realize that there is no power apart from God, we won’t acknowledge anything else, and we will know that we don’t have to plead with God, because we have perfect confidence that He is already answering our prayer (S19).  Our textbook echoes Jesus’ instruction to enter the closet in our prayer—to quiet the sense evidence, keep our mouths closed and just commune with God.  [like when on a Solo with God, a CedarS tradition, established by Founder Ruth Huff]  Our ongoing desire to be selfless, pure, and loving shows that we are sincere (S20).  Not merely praying with words, but actively listening and demonstrating the truths we profess keep us in tune with God and yield “infinite blessings.”

Section 5: Sincere Prayer Yields Results
Do you think there could ever be an occasion in which your angels are without recourse to save you? When we’re attuned to God, His divine messengers are always able to help.

Again, I turn to Albert Barnes for enlightenment on the 91st Psalm (B19). He says the word rendered “dwelleth” means literally, “to sit.”  He goes on to say, “The idea is that of calm repose; of resting; of sitting down as one does in his dwelling.”  It’s a lovely idea—to make our home in God, and abide there all the time.  In that abode, the angels of His presence are always there to help. [Try a word-by-word reading and feeling of “In heavenly Love abiding”—Hymn 148]

Earlier we saw Jacob struggling to find God.  Now we have Peter in a less than enviable position—imprisoned the night before what could be his execution.  He was asleep, resting peacefully without consternation over his situation, between two soldiers (B20).  Apparently, the fact that he was bound with chains meant that his right hand was chained to one of the soldiers, and his left hand bound to another.  It would have seemed that there was no way out of his predicament.  Now the church (presumably including some of the disciples) were putting their expanding understanding of prayer to the test.  They were praying, “without ceasing” for Peter.  David Guzik’s Commentaries on the Bible point out that this phrase, from the Greek ektenos, means someone “stretching out all they can for something” and that it’s related to a medical term meaning to stretch a muscle to its limits.  The same Greek word is used by Luke to describe Jesus’ agonizing prayer in Gethsemane.  So the church wasn’t being casual about this.  They were working with diligence and purpose.

Suddenly an angel woke Peter up, and the chains falling off, he was led past all the guards, out of the prison gates, and down the street.  Peter didn’t argue with the angel, or hesitate to follow.  He went along with it, heedless of the potential danger, and only when he was safe, did he fully comprehend what had happened.  No matter what chains bind you, you too, can be free.  The key is in Psalm 119 (B21).  Our freedom is assured when we resolve to walk in His precepts. [Thanks to the Lesson Committee for this message during America’s July 4th celebration of Freedom week.]

Our textbook promises that, “The power of God brings deliverance to the captive” (S21).  It’s interesting to me, that Mrs. Eddy equates all the ruthless propensities with a false sense of personality (S22).  Remember that earlier we found that God was properly the only Person, and therefore, the belief of many mortal personalities exposes an ignorance of the Oneness of God.  It’s that very ignorance that produces discord, and “the right understanding of Him restores harmony” (S23).  Science and Health states these precepts so beautifully that re-stating them is futile.  The sense is that when we understand God, we see that there is not even the remotest possibility of another power.  “Evil is not supreme; good is not helpless…” (S24).  What a powerful thing to know!

We often feel like we’re at the mercy of circumstances beyond our control.  Sometimes people comfort themselves by saying, “It’s God’s will.”  But evil is never His will and we have the right to stand up for Truth and with it and have God alone govern our lives (S25).  The fact is that whether we know it or not God is governing, but unless we actively declare it and consciously maintain our communion with Him, and correct our course to comply with His law, we may be led to believe otherwise. Even if we do find ourselves in a challenge, Love’s angels are always present to help. The worst situation can be turned into an opportunity to prove God’s allness (S26) because nothing is impossible to God.

Section 6: One God; One Unified Family
I think, given all the strife and conflict in the world today, it’s safe to say that something serious has to be done.  On the large scale, politicians may try to reason with one another, factions may try to eliminate each other, and religious folk will continue to call for peace.  A deeper understanding of God is the only path to real peace.  The first two citations in this section, (B22 and B23), were written in times of severe contention, one over disobedience, and the other after civil war.  We know that using the analogy of mankind as one family doesn’t always automatically mean everyone will get along.  Family feuds are a common occurrence.  But thinking in terms of oneness and equality can help us relax a bit, and at least listen to each other.  There is only one God, one infinite Person.  We aren’t many personalities operating in either conflict or concert.  It’s all God unfolding Himself.  When we imagine heaven, don’t we suppose that there will be no strife there?  There’s nothing to argue about, or hate each other for.  No property to fight over, or rights to be demanded.  Everything is simply under divine control and everyone has equally, all they need or could ever want.  We would dwell together harmoniously.  There’s that word “dwell” again.  The path to peace is for all of us to “dwell”—to abide in, and make our home in God.  The psalmist foresaw that the only possible outcome would be that everyone would draw nigh to one God and worship Him alone (B24).

Our Leader was right in line with that sentiment.  She says mankind will become perfect as he understands that all men have one Mind (S27).  Having one God repairs everything that’s broken with society civilly, criminally, religiously, politically, domestically, and economically (S28).  Understanding God’s being brings us the freedom to “enter the holiest”—to dwell in that secret place, that kingdom of heaven the realm of God (S29).  Do we doubt this?  Do we think mankind is too far astray?  Only if we believe in another power opposed to God.  When we truly understand God, we’ll see that any other power is out of the question (S30).  So whatever our condition seems to be, we can never be outside of God’s presence, and God is already sending us the exact angel messages we need.  Now it’s up to us to listen.


[Warren’s P.S. #1 about Genesis 28:10-16 (B12) and the angels on Jacob’s Ladder in Bethel (Notes taken in Warren’s wide-margin-Bible during a CedarS-sponsored Cobbey Crisler Bible-talk in the 1980s):  “Draw a graphic symbol with God at the top of a ladder and Man (with head on the Rock) at the bottom. On the right draw from God to Man a downward, arc-shaped arrow (like that used for the symbol of recycling).  Label it Angels.  On the left draw from Man to God an upward, arc-shaped arrow (like that used for the symbol of recycling). Label it Prayer, gratitude, healing… “With Jacob’s head on the rock here, the concept of Church on the Rock is linked for the first time…  The link of Jacob’s ladder, dramatized by angels, illustrates a rung by rung, one step at a time journey, each step closer to God and all the time surrounded by angel messages received and utilized.  This is what God intends consciousness to be… Just as Abraham was the first to see God as omnipotent (“I am the almighty Lord”) and he doesn’t stifle that revelation, or ridicule it, but utilizes it for the benefit of humanity, so Jacob is the first to see God as omnipresent and he doesn’t stifle that revelation, or ridicule it, but utilizes it for the benefit of humanity. Genesis 28:16 articulates moving from the belief in regional gods (henotheism) to an omnipresent God… Jacob’s renaming of the place of his insight to Beth-el (the house of God) becomes part of a later definition of church.”  I find new meaning in singing “Nearer my God to Thee” Hymn 192 with its verses “Though like the wanderer, The sun gone down, Darkness be over me, My rest a stone; Yet in my dreams I’d be Nearer my God to Thee… There let the way appear, Steps unto heaven; All that Thou sendest me In mercy given; Angels to beckon me Nearer my God to Thee… Then, with my waking thoughts Bright with Thy praise, Out of my stony griefs Bethel I’ll raise; So by my woes to be Nearer my God to Thee…]
