The benefits of following God’s instruction

It costs us much more to say “No,” to God, than to say, “Yes,” when a divine command follows through with a right idea.

When the voice of wisdom says, “You need to spend some time studying for your exam tomorrow,” and you resist because you are tired, you will likely be better off to find the strength of Spirit to study anyway to pass the exam, then to not study and fail it.

If your boss asks you to do something you don’t want to do, and the voice of Love within says, “Be gracious, patient, and look for the good,” you’re likely much better off over the long run to respond accordingly, than to reply with a gripe or complaint that creates tension in the workplace and casts a dark shadow on your character.

The Mind of God is giving us wise instruction all the time. Events always turn out better when we follow it.

    1. Angie, this article is absolutely golden! I read it on my phone, and kept remembering ideas from it, and had to go back and search for it. It explains CS Treatment in one of the best ways I have ever found. I realize when I read it – how much Evan’s SpiritView daily instructions are also molding and chiseling thought. He teaches us these same points – and then, when we find them again, if feels like they are old friends, and the understanding is cemented. I use the blogs nearly every day in my treatments and phone calls. I am so so grateful for this blessed spiritual daily bread! Thank you all!

  1. I think it’s true that, “the Mind of God is giving us wise instruction all the time.” Sometimes it seems like we aren’t able to hear it, but it’s always there. Or we do hear it but something else seems louder and takes our attention away. The metaphor is the radio station that is always broadcasting all good, all truth, all the time, we call it station WGOD, But sometimes our radio dial seemingly gets mistakenly tuned to another station, WLIE or WERROR. Thankfully we have the freedom, given to us by God, to tune the radio right back to the correct station, which goes on broadcasting the good news and right ideas to us 24/7.

  2. The postulates and absolute truth this morning are a great help. Thank you Evan, Angie, and Rose for your aid this morning. Surely more will follow today’s precious sharing.

  3. Thank you all for these wonderful healing messages this morning.
    I seemed to have been pulled away from my Spiritual Breakfast yesterday, and it took me all day and well into this morning to find my peace. So very grateful to learn these lessons that help me grow in grace. God, Good, Guards, Guides, and Governs all his Children.

  4. Wow, this is a “meaty” article Angie, thanks much, I have printed it to fully digest it. I have a meeting to attend today that appears to me to be a challenge, my motto (that I was considering tattooing on the back of my hand!!) will be “Be Gracious, be Patient, and look for the Good”, thank you so much Evan. Also yesterday’s SV was excellent.

  5. Yes to be in alignment with harmony definitely has it’s rewards. Calm peaceful decision making will always meet the moment. ♡
    Thanks Evan again beautiful reminders.

  6. This week’s lesson age 288:20.outlines the postulates
    1.Life is God , good and not evil
    2 Soul is sinless, not in body
    3 Spirit cannot be materialized
    4.Life is not subject to death
    5.the spiritual real man has no birth,
    Material life, and no death.
    Thanks Angie and Evan for elaborating these truths

  7. Thank you Evan for another inspired topic that supports our spiritual progress,- and Angie for another precious historical article. From this 1948 article “Spiritual Postulates” a quote from MBE’s Misc. Writings page 127 stood out to me. “When a hungry heart petitions the divine Father-Mother God for bread, it is not given a stone, — but more grace, obedience, and love. If this heart, humble and trustful, faithfully asks divine Love to feed it with the bread of heaven, health, holiness, it will be conformed to a fitness to receive the answer to it’s desire; then will flow into it the “river of His pleasure”, the tributary of divine Love, and great growth in Christian Science will follow, — even that joy which finds one’s own in another’s good.” Obedience becomes such a natural thing, and we do reap the spiritual benefits! Blessings and gratitude to all for your beautiful offerings of love.

  8. Steadfast instruction Evan…with such helpful, inspiring comments and articles. We are all surely so loved by Love❣️

  9. Love is a verb, not a noun. MBE says “Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the way.” S&H Pg 454:18-19
