God’s law of Enough

July 31, 2009 | 5 comments

Many people are looking for jobs today, or fear losing their present position.

While praying about unemployment recently, I found myself mentally fighting the claim that there are not enough jobs to go around. There is a shortage of positions for the large number of workers seeking them, the carnal mind aggressively argued.

I immediately identified the claim as a lie , because I know there is never lack in God’s kingdom. There are enough jobs for everyone, I exclaimed.

And then it occurred to me how important it is to pray for everyone in the workforce when facing the issue of unemployment. It is not well enough to pray only for one’s self to find a job, for if one held in thought the possibility of someone else being unemployed because of unfavorable economic conditions, that same belief could very well hold that person back from finding employment.

We live out what we hold in thought. So if we’re battling the belief that there are not enough jobs for everyone, we need to know that there are enough jobs for everyone.

God’s law of Enough! The phrase formed in my mind.

That’s right! I exalted. We’re all governed by “God’s law of Enough!”

There is always enough good to go around for one and all. It’s the way of universal infinite Love.

When I pray for better health, I never fear not finding it because someone else is struggling with disease. I know health comes from God, and it’s unending, ever-present, built into our spiritual individuality which no one ever loses.

When I pray for more love, I never fear not finding it because my neighbor is fighting with his spouse. I know it comes from God, and it’s infinite, equally available to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

When I pray for supply, I never fear not finding it because my neighbor filed for bankruptcy. I know supply is spiritual, coming from God, in the form of wisdom, love, creativity, and inspiration, and there is never a lack of it. Supply is available to one and all.

Demonstrating enough of God’s good is about understanding “God’s law of Enough.” There is enough goodness to go around for everyone, including gainful employment that demonstrates worth and value and generates a profitable return. The opportunities and possibilities come from God, and they are without limit.

God’s law of Enough. I like it. It rings true. It uplifts and inspires one’s sense of possibility. It takes thought out of the mindless dungeon of feeling hopeless and impoverished, and puts it upon the mountaintop of Truth where the expansive view of God’s blessings and gifts is readily taken in, and enough of God’s goodness is found.

There is enough of this goodness for you too. For after all, you are governed by “God’s law of Enough,” and that is enough!

“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.” II Cor 9:8

  1. Yes, Evan! I have been focusing on “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.” Then I started thinking how true that is, but it means “need,” not wants or desires.

    Thank you for your article.


  2. Hi Evan,

    Your article reminds me of the passage in this weeks Bible lesson: “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” and further down Jesus says” Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethern, ye have done it unto me.”

    To me the agressive human belief is inequality and the antidote would be the divine concept that we all are reflections of divine Love, none more needed and valued or talented than the other. We are all connected as the Christ man. No one is left out and unemployed [not useful]. Our Father/Mother would not let any of His/Her children suffer. We are all equally supported, equally loved, cared for, inspired, comforted, sheltered, needed, valued necessary for the full expression of God’s universe.

    Thanks Evan for the inspired article.


  3. Wonderful! This is so simple, super easy to remember, and so applicable to all kinds of challenges- time, loneliness,love as you said, ideas, even patience!, as my slobbery Black Lab insists on dropping his slimed-up tennis ball yet again and again on my clean shoes! It seems this would be great one to share in Sunday school as well.

    Thank you for all you do! You make Christian Science real and practical and give us a marvelous example to follow.


  4. On this topic there’s a couple of things I’ve been thinking about recently. One comes from Miscellaneous Writing: “…I never ask for tomorrow. It is enough that Divine Love is an ever-present help; and if I wait, never doubting, I will have everything I need every moment. What a glorious inheritance is given to me through the understanding of omnipresent Love.”

    The other is from the “blue book.” “I realize that the Source of Supply, God, supplies every need and that there is plenty of work for all. My work belongs to me and no one else can do it. It comes to me direct and the supply is abundant.”

  5. “kingdom” is a bit of a bother for me. It implies geographical territory with limitations, those in and those out. It is also masculine; lets face it, kings are men. I wonder if there is another word – reign, realm – which could be used to suggest more inclusiveness?
