“Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.’
“And as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.
“Then Jesus said to them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.’"
I enjoyed watching this lone fisherman casting his line into the ocean and decided to take a picture of him. He of course had bait on the hook, and he would reel the line in and then cast out again, over and over again.
Jesus told His disciples to follow Him and He would make them fishers of men. Certainly, Jesus is talking about preaching the gospel and getting people born again, but someone else to consider as a fisher of men is you: God’s Intercessor.
Think of the countless times you have been alone in your prayer closet. You have sought the Holy Spirit to pray for multitudes you don’t even know, throwing the line out to the lost that are in turbulence and darkness, who are living lives without purpose or direction.
Saints, God knows and He takes into account your sacrifice of love and dedication to pray.
There are many blessings from the Lord to be enjoyed now, but far greater rewards of glory when our assignments here are completed and we are living with our Savior Jesus face to face. Until then, dear heart, keep up the good work!
Throw that line out to the lost in prayer and be fishers of men!
One morning a few weeks ago the Lord gave me some words from Heaven that will bless you. I would like to post them here on the website so that you may refer to them from time to time.
There’s more of Me to know.
There’s more of you to know.
There’s no end to My Kingdom.
You were called before the foundation of the world.
You are My handiwork.
The creation is My handiwork.
The creation is calling for the sons to help. Speak the blessing to it.
Prayer releases the ability of God.
When you pray expect an answer.
The Bible is your mirror. See what you look like there, and not the world.
You were designed for greatness.
You are not your own. You were bought with a price.
There’s power in you.
Do not love this passing world.
Love the Father.
You are His workmanship.
You have received an anointing. It teaches you all things.
Live in faith, hope and love.
Pay little attention to the “screaming” headlines.
There are many untruths spoken. Stay in the Word.
Live in truth.
You have a goal. We have a goal.
Everything is in Christ.
Follow your Leader.
Your life is hid in Christ.
You are a sojourner.
Please the Father. Walk by faith.
You haven’t seen anything yet.
The end is better than the beginning.
It’s already planned.
You’re standing on solid ground.
You are doing far more than you know.
You have abilities that are yet unseen.
The Kingdom is far, far greater than this world.
You are on the increase. Your favor is increasing.
You have blessed Me.
Do not be dismayed. Your best days are now.
Life is made of individual days. Enjoy life. Look at the birds.
My peace I give to you. My Kingdom I give to you.
My peace is My rest.
Be encouraged. Encourage the brethren.
Take no fear saying…
It’s all about faith.
Stay with what you know.
Your identity is in Christ Jesus, not the world.
Your everything is in Him.
Love is the key to fulfillment.
Faith is the substance.
God does nothing without faith.
God communicates His faith by words.
His Word is His bond.
I give you the keys of My Kingdom.
It all adds up to: God loves you! And if God be for you who can be against you?
