If you pray for healing over a health issue that your neighbor might take a medicine for, be clear that the Truth you are relying upon is by far the most powerful remedy known to mankind for relief from your ailment.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote,
“The universal belief in physics weighs against the high and mighty truths of Christian metaphysics. This erroneous general belief, which sustains medicine and produces all medical results, works against Christian Science; and the percentage of power on the side of this Science must mightily outweigh the power of popular belief in order to heal a single case of disease” Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 155.
When going to God in prayer, its important that God has your ear, not popular belief.
We live in a realm of thought, and if one hundred million people believe you should take an aspirin for a head pain, and you are inclined to listen and believe what your neighbor argues, then you might start to believe the same thing. However, if you are clear that only what God knows and supports has legitimacy and weight, you will not be persuaded, and spiritual healing will come much quicker.
The truth is, popular opinion has no weight in the scale of Truth. When we turn to God for spiritual healing, belief does not play a role. Truth is the only factor. What is true between you and God is all that matters. It doesn’t make any difference what anyone else believes. Their opinion carries the weight of nothing.
Truth outweighs all popular belief and renders it powerless and unpersuasive.
When you stand on the side of Truth, you stand on the winning side.
