Have you ever felt helpless, hopeless, or alone, unable to bear the burden of the moment?
You are not alone. You are not helpless.
Christ is with you. Christ is in you, giving you all the power, capacity and ability you need to overcome any challenge and move forward to something better.
I’m not sure how many people appreciate what Christ can do for them.
Many people, I suppose, think of Christ as Jesus, a man who lived 2000 years ago. That was then, and this is now, they may reason, figuring Christ is irrelevant. A man who lived 2,000 years ago is no aid today, they conclude. But that reasoning couldn’t be further from the truth. Christ lives forever.
The power that worked through Jesus is present today. “I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world,” he told his followers.
The same power that healed through Jesus is in you, as a child of God.
Are you aware of this presence? Are you letting it benefit you?
Jesus said, “When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” (John 14:20 NLV.)
Consider what it means for Christ to dwell in you and you in Christ.
Christ is God’s power and presence, “The divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error.” Mary Baker Eddy wrote. (SH 583:10.)
When you have Christ you have everything! You have the best help available. You have the best health provider, caretaker, supplier, encourager, supporter, and companion. You absolutely do not lack. It’s impossible.
But you need to recognize the presence of Christ to feel it consistently. Honor it. Value it. Acknowledge it. Be aware of it. When you do, those feelings of helplessness and lack will vanish like vapor into thin air.
