Today I woke up with happiness in my soul!  I had an exciting day at the salon yesterday and God was moving in the spirit realm from the time I woke up he was placing things on people’s heart and in turn they revealed those things to me.  Oh how great it is to hear from God.  My morning scripture reading was from the book of Luke Chapter 5 and I read and once again God has revealed something to me within the scripture in verses 1-5.  This prompted me to write a blog today because someone out there will be just as excited as I am at the revelation that was revealed. 

Luke 5:1-5 KJV

And it came to pass that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God; he stood by the lake of Gennesaret.  And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.  And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land.  And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.  Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for draught.  And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

My God! My God!  I have heard several sermons on this scripture and they were all taught from the perspective of what Jesus saw and taught but my blog today is going to speak from the perspective of us that follow Christ.  When he says go we go, when he says do we do, when he says stop we stop, when he says give we give, when he says take we take, whatsoever God says we do it with faith that we are following his will and desire for our lives.  I can’t tell you how many times I have acted on faith only to feel like Jeremiah, ready to stop and give up because the promise wasn’t there but I couldn’t because it was like fire shut up in my bones, ready to say God must not be real and I must be crazy BUT GOD!  Yes, BUT GOD, he knew those days would come so the way he called me to him I couldn’t say he didn’t exist he is very, very real!  He called me from Florida to Ohio with a contrite heart and a broken spirit to show me he was real.  The pastor called me out in church that day and spoke to me what no other man but God knew therefore I know he is real lovelies. 

Now in the scripture if you caught what I caught Simon and the fisherman had already been out fishing all night long (in my Mary J. Blige voice), they had caught all they could catch or they caught nothing at all (because sometimes say nothing but only one is something), they had given up and came back to shore, stepped off the boats and were washing their nets.  They were done with fishing!  BUT GOD!  Jesus stepped onto the scene and called Simon to the boat and prayed him to push back from the land! Jesus prayed someone to do something for him, he petitioned Simon, and he begged Simon to come on just trust me!  Jesus was saying Simon, push back from the people and take a ride with me Simon.  Step away from the natural and ride with me into the supernatural.  You did it your way now let’s try it my way.  See this was Jesus plan unbeknown to Simon so he did as Jesus had asked.  Now Jesus taught the people from the ship then he asked Simon to launch out into the deep.  Jesus asked Simon will you allow me take your faith deeper than it currently is, are you willing to trust me enough to give it one more try?  Simon replied as we all do when we have given up (let’s keep it real okay), we tell God what we have done, what we found, what we have and in the end we either proceed in faith or we walk away not trusting God.  So Simon told Jesus and let me paraphrase a little.  He said, “Look Jesus we have been out there all night and caught all we could catch and it really wasn’t much.  We already went out there in faith and we did not return with what we were expecting, as far as I can see we have nothing.  I have washed the nets, I’m tired and I just want to go home.  But you know what Jesus I trust you so if you want me to launch out into to the deep there must be a reason so if you tell me to do it I’m going to do it.”  Simon let Jesus know where he had been and where he was at but in the end he said you know what Lord I still trust you and he preceded with Jesus request.  And what did he receive?  A blessing, an overflow, more fish than his boat or the other boat could hold.  The scripture says it was so much fish in the net that the boat started to sink, but not only Simon’s boat but the second boat as well that came out to help.

 Now what does that mean, to me it means when you were going through all those that stood with you and encouraged you, helped you work your faith, when you get your blessing they get theirs as well because the blessing you receive is over flow, it’s more than you can receive, it’s in the land of milk and honey and God said he would bless you to be a blessing.  I have come to the crossroad so many times in life and was ready to give up and turn away from the blessing.  I didn’t want to turn the wrong way but I had an option.  Keep walking toward the blessing (straight), do evil for a quick breakthrough from the devil (left) or just give up and live a life of mediocrity while praising God (right).  I always choose the road to the blessing.  I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to give up but I kept pressing through.  I can’t tell you the tears I cried and the number of sleepless nights I have endured but there is one man that can.  God had seen all that I have done openly as well as in secret, he knows the exact number of tears that I have cried, the exact amount of sleep that I have lost and every person that has done me wrong.  When I read that scripture it confirmed all that happened yesterday and today I am fully prepared to launch out into the deep.  So just sit back and relax and watch my God work because he is moving and I am catching the wave as should you. In life moments arise and we think OK God look me and you need to talk because I’m not seeing anything over here, don’t give up keep toiling your ground and digging to the ROCK so your foundation will be strong and sturdy.    NEVR GIVE UP!  Until next time my lovelies have a glamorous day.
