Have no fear of a recession

July 28, 2022 | 32 comments

There’s much talk in the news media about a looming recession, not only in the United States, but in many countries around the world.

To stay ahead of error and prevent suffering, it’s wise to give this topic some good vigorous prayer to neutralize any negative effects from such popular belief.

With God, there is no such thing as a recession.

The economy of divine Mind is forever flourishing. It is a continuum of grand good unfolding without end. Opportunities to be fruitful, productive, and profitably engaged abound without limit.

Divine Mind never takes backward steps, never slows down, never recedes into a state that is less than ideal and perfect. Recessions do not happen in divine Mind. Expression happens!

God’s economy expresses the intelligence, wisdom, creativity, productive and profitable thinking of divine Mind.

Divine Mind never comes up short on ideas that bring good results.

There are no material limits, supply constraints, bad policies, or fearful thinking in the economy of divine Mind. Divine Mind knows no limits, provides infinite supply of good ideas, governs wisely and intelligently, and knows no fear. Love abounds in Mind’s economy.

So, have no fear of a recession. Be an expression! Focus on expressing the truth about God’s economy where supply abounds, opportunity multiplies, and good advances without limit, and your activity will keep moving ahead without limit, fear, or constraint.

  1. ‘Progress is the law of God’. No backward steps. Expression not recession. I like that. Thanks Evan.

  2. Thank you so much for your thoughts on what is in the public minds. I need those very clear thoughts to maintain poise especially when others are asking what do I think . I am so grateful for the teaching of Ms. Eddy for Science and for other members who live by those divine spiritual laws.
    This is the fellowship so needed for those who walk a different walk, and talk a different talk.

  3. Thank you for such wonderful, powerful thoughts, Evan! “Divine Mind never takes backward steps, never slows down”; “not recession, but expression!” (love that one!). Thanks so much for the “rifle shot” of these powerful truths that destroy the lie of limitation, fear, and limited good.

    1. I agree Mike. Also love: “Opportunities to be fruitful, productive, and profitably engaged abound without limit.” I have not been as fruitful in years! The pandemic slowed my life down so that I have the space to focus on what is truly important. I now work at asking the Christ for water in the desert to cool our planet down where rain is a must. Jesus said, “Ye receive not because ye ask not.” So every day, 3X a day at least, I ask for rain where there is drought; rain where there are fires. Focusing on the West and mid-West, Iraq and Iran, Morocco, Tunisia, Portugal and Parma, Italy at this time. Grateful for being a branch on the vine of Christ.

      1. Thank you for the wonderful post today! I always love posts on for infinite supply. Thank you for mentioning we need to ask. I will ask for rain also, where ever it is needed. I live in Texas and it is needed.

      2. Lisa:
        Many lessons of Soul, God, are always “flowing” to His/Her beloved children, & creation, when we do God’s will & obey His/Her providence. This supreme Intelligence at times is beyond our reasoning, & unknown in this existence we call life, but known to God, Life. We need to trust and know that All that He/She has created is under God’s control, governance, harmony, & preservation of Good. Good is all there is..Ever! See it, Feel it, Trust it. It’s absolute!!!

  4. Thanks Evan, we all need these metaphysical ideas. Nothing can paralyze the power of Spirit from meeting our every need+

  5. Flood-tides of supply and that includes flood-tides of perfect ideas, policies and their implementation and these put out the fires of fear. Thank you Evan

  6. Wow – that is SO HELPFUL dear Evan. I’ve been thinking wrongly about the suggestions of recession. To counteract the concerns, I’ve been finding myself singing hymn 225 a lot in my head. It’s so comforting:

    “O’ Lord, I would delight in Thee, and on Thy care depend to Thee in every trouble flee, my best, my ever Friend, When all material streams are dried, Thy fullness is the same; may I with this be satisfied, and glory in Thy name.

    All good, where’er it may be found, its source doth find in Thee, I must have all things and abound, while God is God to me. O that I had a stronger faith to look within the veil, to credit what my Saviour saith, Whose word can never fail,

    He that hath made my heaven secure, will here all good provide; while Christ is rich can I be poor? What can I want beside? O God I cast my care on Thee; I triumph and adore; hence-forth my great concern shall be… to… love and praise Thee more!


  7. Our Leader said it so succinctly – “…God giving all, and man having all that God gives;” (My. 5:9,10)

    Someone (who?) once said “What part of “all” do you not understand?” I sometimes remember to ask myself that question when I see the word “all”.

  8. The will of God will never take us where the grace of God cannot sustain us. Billy Graham.

    No lack, no deficiency, indeed no doubt for as Psalm 23 says….’The Lord is my shepherd..I shall not want..’

    Thanks Evan and all for your thoughts today❣️

    1. Oh this is perfect for me, Barbara. Thank you. And thank you Evan for your wonderfully helpful sharing. And everyone who shared metaphysical thoughts. I find it so helpful to keep thought guarded from thinking that there are any material causes, may they appear to be bad, or good… Spirit, Mind, is the only Cause, never matter, which is only a misapprehension of Reality. That’s why “things” are thoughts (or “Thoughts are things” as SH marginal heading 260:31 puts it) be it vegetation or “man-made” it’s all thought. Thanks be to God.

  9. Thank you Evan for awakening spiritual sense to behold the harvest of plenty where there seems to be lack and drought.

    I rejoice with you all in this “vigorous prayer”.

  10. Thanks Evan, and all.
    So many helpful ideas from the community today, articles,hymns, and everyone else’s ideas.
    I’m so grateful.

  11. Thank you Evan, and wonderful comments everyone! With rising interest rates, the industry I’m in would appear to be imploding. It’s been helpful to work with these quotes by others:
    – A ray of sunlight receives all that it needs directly from its source, the sun…In the same way, we each receive everything we need directly from God, our true source of being. It may look to us as though good comes from people or circumstances, but the source is always God – and that never changes. (Virginia Anders)
    – Fear is a denial of God’s presence. The thing we fear is always an illusion. Fear anticipates evil. It suggests that one’s life experience may be disrupted, and that it lacks coherence and continuity. This spiritual law of right activity is uninterruptible because it expresses divine Life. The forces of divine Mind eternally maintain, govern and control all ideas of Mind.
    – Any erroneous situation or condition exists only within the dream of mortality, and that we command the situation by not being deceived by its seeming reality.

    1. Thank you very much J, these quotes are so powerful and really uplifted me, as I sit here reading all the comments late in the day.

      As it is late I was not going to comment, but I think it’s always a good time to appreciate God’s wisdom and guidance coming forth from so many wonderful ideas shared today. Grateful, and will take time to let all this bounty sink in.

  12. Thank you all for your comments. When I read this the word that came to me was recede. I seem to be experiencing receding gums. After reading Evan’s truths, I cannot “recede into a state that is less than ideal and perfect”. Nothing about me can decline, withdraw, move away from, etc. So thank you for this awakening to my pure, perfect, spiritual self.

    1. Thank you kindly Carrie. I also “seem” to be experiencing that same receding you mentioned. So glad you made that astute connection with the word recession in today’s topic, really snapped me to attention to adopt a higher and truer viewpoint to counteract this wrong thought. Nothing good can recede in the realm of God and His creation.

  13. When we personalize evil, we give it its sincerest form of flattery — IDENTITY and/or identification.

    We NEVER NEED do this in order to be free of some claim.

    It’s been said by some of Mrs. Eddy’s pupils that “the more UNIVERSAL your spiritual application to a claim is, the more specific will be its results.”

    The Adam dream world is hypnotism, and there is no “fix” to a dream except to WAKE UP. This is doable because the Mind of this universe isn’t hypnotized.

    Life is Spirit, and Spirit is Life. “Matter can afford you no aid.”
    (S&H 492: 13-21)

  14. Yes! Yes! this Spirit View from Evan and everyone’s most helpful comments have put me on a most positive and uplifting track of thought. I shall indeed be prayerfully addressing this worldly aggressive suggestion. Thank you to everyone and Evan!

  15. Thank you Evan and thank you all for sharing. This is very uplifting as the fear of a world’s depression has wiped off and I will keep on seeing expression. Thank you for this healing. Let us rejoice as we live in this abundance. Grace Ngoindai Ajayi

  16. Exodus 17:6 – “Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shat smite the rock and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink, and Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.” Bible scholars widely agree that sufficient water did come out of the rock.

  17. Wonderful ideas, Evan. I’m going to have to reread this and everyone’s comments nd keep them in mind. Thanks to all.
