If we were to ask a modern scientist what authority he has for believing in a certain principle in nature, his only answer would be: “Because I can do something with it, it must exist. Since it reacts to the use I make of it, there must be something real about it.” This is equally true of our faith in God. Because something does react to our faith, there must be something real which can react. Even after Jesus had demonstrated the authority of his faith in God through so many wonderful acts, one of his disciples asked him to show them the Father.  He told them again that his words and works were of the Father, or else to believe him “for the very works’ sake.”  If Jesus were the first or only man to multiply loaves and fishes and make the wind and wave obey his will, it was not because God or the Supreme Creative Cause had withheld this power from others. It was merely because Jesus was the first, and perhaps the only one, who completely accepted and acted as though it were true. When we make our affirmation in the silence of our own consciousness, we are facing the Divine Reality, dealing with It directly, using Its power consciously.
