Luk 5:3 And He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, He asked him to thrust out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the people out of the boat.
Luk 5:4 And as He stopped speaking, He said to Simon, Launch out into the deep and let your nets down for a haul.
I am truly grateful for one thing. I am finding my hunger and thirst for righteousness back. In recent days, i have been doing my bible study and speaking in tongues. Coming from a place where I inadvertently neglected this precious and necessary spiritual exercise, i believe i appreciate quiet time better. and i am convinced of one thing…those voices that made me pen words in my little book of prophecy were not my imaginations. because in the last few months, i have been unable to pen any words of the spirit, whether imagined or real. No, God didn’t stop talking; i don’t believe he does….i only lost my reception.
But i am tuning in slowly but surely. As i read my bible in the mornings, i see beyond the words of scripture. Today, i saw a simple message – Jesus Pays Up. Or like another part of scripture puts it, He is a rewarder of those who diligently see him. So what i saw this morning, was Jesus stepping into Peter’s life, and making use of him. But he didn’t just get up and leave. Even without asking for compensation, Jesus offered Peter a net-bursting catch of fish.
Now, if God does not change, and he did this miracle for Peter just for using his boat, think what he could and would do for me, having offered him my life and professional services in the past four years.
Thank you Jesus, because my profiting is surely evident.
