… As long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.
II Chronicles 26:5
… we do not wish, we know. We do not dream, we state. We do not hope, we accept.

Infinite Abundance Is Now Mine
The unknown is often scary. When we don’t know what to expect in a particular situation, our imagination can go wild and before we know it we have created a horrible scenario.
That’s exactly what happened to me two years ago, after I had completed my first four months as a Science of Mind minister. It was tax time, and I needed the advice of an expert, since I wasn’t exactly sure how to file. Previously, I had been a teacher, and filling out the tax forms was fairly simple, but this year I had taught part of the year and been a minister part of the year. That meant I might have to pay additional taxes, since during this latter period nothing had been withheld from my paychecks.
The tax consultant was not very optimistic. He implied that I would have to pay lots of money to the government and proceeded to enumerate the reasons. A wave of terror hit me. After I left his office, I began to affirm, “Infinite Divine Abundance is now mine to meet all financial demands made upon me.” Ten days later, the tax man called me to tell me the results of his calculations. I must admit, my heart was pounding as he began telling me all the details. Suddenly he paused and I asked him, “How much am I going to owe?”
“Owe?” he responded. “You aren’t going to owe anything. In fact, this year you will receive a $1,500 refund!”
Today I know without a shadow of a doubt that God is the Source of my supply!No person, institution, or place of employment is the source of my supply. God is the Source of my supply. And God uses many wonderful avenues through which to bring me this Infinite Supply. I am eternally grateful.
