It’s Independence Day in the United States, a holiday formed over two centuries ago to celebrate the nation’s independence from foreign domination.
The holiday serves as a useful reminder to me to declare independence from all types of domination, not just from national occupation, but personal, physical, and disease related domination that would rob us of health and happiness.
God created us to live free of all oppression. We have God-given rights to rise and conquer any type of fear, false belief, or disease that would justify suffering.
Be sure to exercise your spiritual rights. Declare your independence from all evil. Declare your dependence on God. Conquer suffering with spiritual truth and live free!
Mary Baker Eddy wrote,
“Like our nation, Christian Science has its Declaration of Independence. God has endowed man with inalienable rights, among which are self-government, reason, and conscience. Man is properly self-governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by his Maker, divine Truth and Love.” Science and Health, p. 106.
