“The inexhaustible resource of Spirit is equal to every demand. There is no reality in lack. Abundance is here and now manifest.” –Charles Fillmore. God is good all the time, even when what we worked to manifest doesn’t show up, God is still good all the time. The question isn’t about God, but, “Are you willing to commit?”
From Matthew, chapter 17, verses 24 through 27, “Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma temple tax came to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?” “Yes, he does,” he replied. When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” he asked. “From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own children or from others?” “From others,” Peter answered. “Then the children are exempt,” Jesus said to him. “But so that we may not cause offense, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.”
The medium of exchange is not the true picture. Divine love is the source. The abundance of divine presence is the goal for you. You are one with God. In truth, you never owe or are owed as a spiritual being. Ask of Spiritual Presence for direction. Go to the realm of energy, of Spirit represented by the lake. It is deep, but look in and “fish” out an idea. Act on the first “fish” (idea). Use it to pay the “tax”, and meet your needs in the 3D world.
We create our experiences. Let’s have joyful experiences. Open to the flow. Call the flow of God into your life. Awaken to the abundance. Act upon it. You can call it forth; you have the power. “The inexhaustible resource of Spirit is equal to every demand. There is no reality in lack.” Pull out the instruction from within and act on it. “Abundance is here and now manifest.” Nothing has any power over you but that which is true love and supports you without limitation, for you are the beloved child of God!
