A while ago, my back suddenly started giving me grief for no apparent reason. When I lifted boxes or turned in certain directions, pain would shoot through my body and cause me to freeze up and not dare to move any further for fear of more pain.
I jumped on this with prayer, wanting it resolved quickly.
As I turned to God for healing truth, the first words that came to me were, “No random error.”
I did a brief mental search as to why this back pain suddenly appeared, and there was no apparent reason. I hadn’t done anything strenuous or out of the ordinary. The trouble seemed to come out of nowhere.
“No random error,” the healing message came again.
As I listened for insight as to what God was trying to tell me, I noted that a large portion of public thought right now is believing in random error, that bad things can happen out of nowhere, without warning. Most specifically, in the form of infection from the coronavirus. I wasn’t afraid of the coronavirus, but then I remembered that I was healed of a serious back problem many years ago, and perhaps I had a slight lingering doubt in the back of consciousness that it could happen again. That evil could randomly catch me by surprise, without warning, and cause me a back problem again, which is what seemed to happen.
So, I challenged the suggestion of random error!
I prayed to see that God was the Principle of my being and was predictable good, that everything about my life was determined by God, not by random error, and was certain to always be good, healthy, and supportive of Life without limit. There is no random error, I declared with conviction and confidence!
As I found my peace with this truth, I dressed for a tennis match that evening. My back was still giving me grief, but while driving to the match, I stayed convicted of my harmonious spiritual being sustaining me as always, with only predictably good things happening to it. There was no random error taking up residence in my life, I insisted!
And honestly, that was the last I thought about the issue until a week later when I realized the back problem had vanished sometime that evening.
I’m grateful to see more clearly that we don’t have to accept random evil in our lives. We can live out God’s predictable good!
