Do you trust your ability to be successful in achieving good results with your career, homelife and prayers? It’s important to trust lest you unwittingly get pulled down a path of failure without seeing it ahead of time.
Consider these words that Mary Baker Eddy wrote about achieving success.
“Science reveals the possibility of achieving all good, and sets mortals at work to discover what God has already done; but distrust of one’s ability to gain the goodness desired and to bring out better and higher results, often hampers the trial of one’s wings and ensures failure at the outset”
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 260.
To repeat, “…distrust of one’s ability…hampers the trial of one’s wings and ensures failure at the outset.”
Avoid failure, by knowing ahead of time why you will be successful in whatever worthy endeavor you are engaging.
As a child of God, you reflect all of God’s abilities and talents. You are not a faulty mortal prone to making endless mistakes. You are a glorious immortal endowed with teeming talent and a clear understanding of how to accomplish all good.
You never act alone. You act on God’s inspiration and God gives you all the insight, wisdom, and foresight you need to be successful in accomplishing good and worthy results.
God never fails in reaching His lofty goals, and neither does God’s reflection—you!
God backs you up 100%. Trust this truth and demonstrate it beyond doubt.
