“Mortal mind is not a prophet!” These words have stuck with me for nearly 30 years since hearing them from a testifier at a Christian Science church service back in the early 1990s.
The testifier was telling about a time when she feared for her future. A “prophecy” had been made that she would suffer great loss because of actions by someone else close to her. She was panicked, afraid, even terrified about what was to come as a result and didn’t know how to prevent the foreboding harm.
As she prayed for release from the fear, it occurred to her that mortal mind is not a prophet. As Christian Science teaches, there is only one Mind overall, the divine Mind of Love. And divine Mind brings only good our way, all the time. She saw that there is no room for evil to occur in Mind’s plan for her life. She began to see clearly that the so-called mortal mind, which is the belief of a mind other than God, could not form a plan, formulate a strategy to carry it out, and then wreak havoc in her life; that mortal mind is not a mind at all; that it cannot think, plan, strategize or do anything, she accepted.
Her fear of the predicted danger vanished, she felt complete relief, and as events proved, the prophesied evil never happened.
Mortal mind is not a prophet in your life either! Accept only what God plans for you and have no fear of anything less.
