Fire Scripture: Luke 5:1-7
5 As Jesus stood beside Lake Galilee, a crowd of people pushed to get closer to him and to hear the teachings of God. 2 Jesus saw two boats at the shore of the lake. The fishermen were washing their nets. 3 Jesus got into the boat that belonged to Simon. He asked Simon to push off a little from the shore. Then he sat down in the boat and taught the people on the shore.
4 When Jesus finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Take the boat into the deep water. If all of you will put your nets into the water, you will catch some fish.”
5 Simon answered, “Master, we worked hard all night trying to catch fish and caught nothing. But you say I should put the nets into the water, so I will.” 6 The fishermen put their nets into the water. Their nets were filled with so many fish that they began to break. 7 They called to their friends in the other boat to come and help them. The friends came, and both boats were filled so full of fish that they were almost sinking.
MFM Devotional 17th January 2023 Message:
In yesterday’s devotional, we noted that there is nothing the anointing cannot do. It can do practically anything. According to today’s fire scripture, Peter and his colleagues. had toiled all night with the hope of catching fish. They had inherited the business from their father, so there is no doubt about their expertise. But this particular day, they were confounded and confused. Why? They had failed at what they knew how to do best.
Dearly beloved, when failure wants to visit a man, it does not recognise professionalism or expertise and neither will it take experience into consideration. But when the anointed Jesus said in verse 4, “Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught”, Simon Peter did not believe what happened next, because they enclosed a great multitude of fish; and their net broke. But the wonder of it all was that the fish did not fall back into the sea.
I pray for you, in that place or that point where you have failed, may you receive greater success and celebration, in the Name of Jesus.
The anointing works wonders. A woman had just one boy and the husband died but the powers that killed the husband were not satisfied. They wanted the life of the son and they also killed him. The woman had lost hope, but as they were taking the boy for burial, Jesus appeared on the scene (Luke 7:11-14).
Beloved, the story changed and the sorrow party they were having before the arrival of the Anointed Jesus turned to a celebration. The Lord turned their mourning into dancing. He can do the same for you.
Are you weeping for the loss of valuables or loved ones? Are you bowed down without helpers? Is the burden too much for you? Jesus the Yoke Breaker says, “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden….” (Matthew 11:28).
