God is the universe you live in

Do you understand that you are living in God’s universe of infinite Love and boundless good now?

Too often, people entertain the notion that God’s blessings are in some far-off place, out of their reach, or perhaps not attainable until after death. But in truth, all of God’s good is here and now.

There is only one universe. There is only one place to live, and that is with God. God is not in some far-off place. God is here and now. God is the only place one can possibly live.

Material sense does not discern God’s presence. But spiritual sense does. So, keep those spiritual senses of yours keenly tuned into the realities of God all around and be ready to participate in their blessings.

God is infinite Love. There is no lack of Love to express and bear witness to wherever you go and in whatever you do.

God is boundless good. There is no limit on how much good you can do today, how many people you can bless and how many blessings you can count to be grateful for. The universe of Love you live in will support and prosper your right motives.

Mortal mind would cast a pall over God’s universe and make one believe there is lack, limitation and reasons to suffer. But this is an upside-down view of God’s creation. God’s universe is spiritual. It’s here and now and to be experienced fully. And you are right smack dab in the middle of it.

“The kingdom of heaven is at hand,” Matthew 3:2, Jesus preached. And spiritual sense discerns it.

Live in the Kingdom, in God’s universe, and enjoy life. It’s your divine birthright.

    What a lovely post, so encouraging and so good. Thanks Evan.
    Wish and pray that everyone realized this fact that “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” God’s blessings are at hand.. All true happiness is at hand.. Because God is Infinite Love, the source of our very being, the source of all blessings the source of everlasting peace and joy… Yes but we need spiritual sense to discern the happiness that flows from the divine source, the happiness which never fades with time, which always satisfies and is ours forever.
    Material sense can not bear witness to the boundless good of God, and to His infinite Love. We need to cultivate our spiritual sense which bears witness to the Truth..
    “Spiritual sense is the constant conscious capacity to understand God.” Do we ever try to understand our inseparability and our unity with God? Our relationship with our divine Father? If we did, then happiness would always be at hand, goodness and mercy would be our constant companions all through… We would not need to seek happiness, but happiness would follow us everywhere and in abundance.
    Happiness sought through material senses is vain, full of trouble, of a few days and ends in sorrow and suffering. Because the essence of our being is spiritual, only the joys of SOUL can satisfy us and fill the emptiness within us.
    Quote Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind and happiness would be more readily attained and would be more secure in our keeping if sought in Soul. Higher enjoyments alone can satisfy the cravings of immortal man. Unquote. from Science and Health.

    With the discoveries of the extensive physical universe by stronger &stronger telescopes, it is so comforting to know that “even there Thy right hand shall hold me” Ps. Inner space or outer space–God is there.

    This is the concept that gives me the most reassurance in any situation. That we can never for even a moment be without his presence because we live in his presence continually. Thank you, Evan for this wonderful post. And Nergish for yours also.

    Yes, we “live and move and have our being” in God, good. We are one with Him. We are His creation and are loved and well cared for by Him. God is All. We can trust Him with all our heart.

    A Bible verse to include in this good discussion is Psalm 46:10-11: “Be still, and know that I am God … the Lord of hosts is with us.”

    A beautiful and inspiring reminder of where we truly dwell. A short quote from a article I have says “Because I am God centered, I am always in my right place.” This includes not only my home, but wherever I am every moment of every day. And this is true for everyone!

    Thank you Evan, for this great Truth and for your loving explanation, how to participate in it.

    MBEddy states in S&H on page 210: lines 16-24:…that they all must give place to the spiritual fact by the translation of man and the universe back into Spirit …
    I think by proving that it is “Gods universe” we just translated the universe back into Spirit in our spiritual sense. Oh, by the way “Spiritual sense is a conscious, constant capacity to understand God” same page, line 31.

    Am grateful for everything I learn more in Christian Science 🙂
