7th Secret from “Secrets of Prosperity” by Mark L. Prophet
Remember that the God presence is the source of your supply
I AM come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” is the secret of it all. The Bible doesn’t say, “You have come.” It says “I AM come” – in other words, the I AM, the God in me, is come – “ that they might have life, and that they might have it for abundantly.” This denotes that the God Presence is the source of your supply. Supply doesn’t come from outer sources.
I can tell you a funny story about The Summit Lighthouse. It isn’t so funny, but it happens to be true. In our early days, when we were in Washington, D.C., our budget was much less than it is today. I would sometimes wait three or four days to go down to the post office and pick up the mail. Then we would get a good stack and it would seem as if we were getting more money.
This was good for my morale. If I went down there and found only four or five envelopes, it was depressing, especially since we had a lot of bills to pay. So I’d wait and I’d bring home a big stack.
One time I kept track of donations over a period of several months. Whether the mail was a big stack or just half as big or only four letters, the amount of money in the envelopes never seems to very more than $10. Now, you figure that one out.
I’d open for envelopes and there would be $100 bill in one, maybe a fifty in another and a check for $75’s in another. Those four envelopes would contain as much money as a great big stack of mail.
At other times I’d come home with mayo and I’d say, “Gee, we really got a lot today,” but there would be just a dollar in one envelope, 50 cents in another, a dollar in another and a check for $1.75 in another envelope. One woman sent in a check for $0.75! And it was like that all the way through the big stack of mail.
So I’ve noticed that the Lord takes care of you regardless of the source. We have experienced this and have found that supply continually comes in.
