CAST YOUR NET DEEPER

CAST YOUR NET DEEPER


The same River that Peter spent the entire night without catching any fish,is the same River where they caught thousands of fish in the morning.

🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠

The issue is when Jesus came in the morning and said ‘Do you have any fish?’ and they said no. He did not advise them to change the River,  instead He advised them to cast the nets deeper.

🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟

You tried to fish the whole of 2016 but you caught nothing. No work, no marriage, no finances, no education, no stable income, no kids, no peace, no success. When your life is going the opposite direction, it’s not about changing your place of work, changing your church, changing your husband or wife, or giving up.

🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬

It’s all about casting your faith deep in God, casting your fellowship with Jesus deep in believing that God will provide, heal, restore, uplift, deliver, revive, and bring blessings and favour along your way.

🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳🐳

May the Lord give you the grace to go deeper.

OVERLY STRETCHED AND STRESSED

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

OVERLY STRETCHED AND STRESSED


410

For you have been my refuge, a strong tower. I long to take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Psalm 61:2-4. The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10

Overly Stretched and Stressed

The young owl was venturing out on his own, enjoying the sunshine and soft breeze. He sat stock still in the marked off spot for an endangered species.

I couldn’t quite get the photo I was after.  Slowly I tip toed closer, full lens camera magnify-cation on. His small head swiveled around to check out possible approaching danger.

Just as I zoomed in he disappeared from view. I was too close for comfort, and that bird was scared and stressed.

Leaning in, I cautiously put my face near the 6 inch poly pipe only to see – not the baby ground owl, but his not-at-all happy mother. Her head was all fluffed up nearly filling the space, totally protecting her young one somewhere behind her. She looked intimidating enough that I dared not step any closer.

I snapped a picture of the Mom ‘guard’; and thought how this scenario was a reminder that when I’m feeling overly stretched and stressed, it’s good to remember where to go.  I can run to our strong tower, our father God. He is waiting, arms stretched out wide, to shield and protect us. That’s good news.

FORGIVENESS

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

FORGIVENESS


409

Corrie Ten Boom in her excellent book “Tramp for the Lord” tells of a time when some close Christian friends hurt her. Forgiveness was hard; it took time. Finally, it happened and she was able to move on.

Many years later, she was now past eighty years old, a friend paid Corrie a visit. As the two of them sat in her tiny apartment in Holland, he asked about those people who years earlier had taken advantage of her.

“It is nothing,” Corrie said, “It is all forgiven.”

Then she continued, “They say there is nothing to forgive! They deny it ever happened. No matter what they say, though, I can prove they were wrong.”

I want to continue the story now using Corrie’s own words: I went eagerly to my desk. “See, I have it in black and white! I saved all their letters and I can show you where….”

My friend slipped his arm through mine and gently closed the drawer. “Corrie! Aren’t you the one whose sins are at the bottom of the sea? Yet are the sins of your friends etched in black and white?”

For an astonishing moment I could not find my voice. “Lord Jesus,” I whispered at last, “who takes all my sins away, forgive me for preserving all these years the evidence against others! Give me grace to burn all the blacks and whites as a sweet-smelling sacrifice to your glory.”

I did not go to sleep that night until I had gone through my desk and pulled out those letters–curling now with age–and fed them all into (the fire).

“Forgive us our trespasses,” Jesus taught us to pray, “as we forgive those who trespass against us.” In the ashes of those letters I was seeing yet another facet of His mercy….”

She went on to write, “Forgiveness is the key which unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.” 1 Corinthians 13:5 simply notes that love “keeps no record of wrongs suffered.”

If you want to truly and completely forgive, drop the matter. Let it go.

CLAY BALLS

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

CLAY BALLS


408

A man was exploring caves by the Seashore. In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay balls. It was like someone had rolled clay balls and left them out in the sun to bake. They didn’t look like much, but they intrigued the man, so he took the bag out of the cave with him. As he strolled along the beach, he would throw the clay balls one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could.

He thought little about it, until he dropped one of the clay balls and it cracked open on a rock. Inside was a beautiful, precious stone!

Excited, the man started breaking open the remaining clay balls. Each contained a similar treasure. He found thousands of dollars worth of jewels in the 20 or so clay balls he had left.

Then it struck him. He had been on the beach a long time. He had thrown maybe 50 or 60 of the clay balls with their hidden treasure into the ocean waves. Instead of thousands of dollars in treasure, he could have taken home tens of thousands, but he had just thrown it away!

It’s like that with people. We look at someone, maybe even ourselves, and we see the external clay vessel. It doesn’t look like much from the outside. It isn’t always beautiful or sparkling, so we discount it.

We see that person as less important than someone more beautiful or stylish or well known or wealthy. But we have not taken the time to find the treasure hidden inside that person.

There is a treasure in each and every one of us. If we take the time to get to know that person, and if we ask God to show us that person the way He sees them, then the clay begins to peel away and the brilliant gem begins to shine forth.

May we not come to the end of our lives and find out that we have thrown away a fortune in friendships because the gems were hidden in bits of clay. May we see the people in our world as God sees them.

I am so blessed by the gems of friendship I have with you. Thank you for looking beyond my clay vessel.

APPRECIATE EVERY SINGLE THING YOU HAVE, ESPECIALLY YOUR FRIENDS! LIFE IS TOO SHORT AND FRIENDS ARE TOO FEW!

Do not ask the Lord to Guide your Footsteps if you are not willing to MOVE your Feet.

With thanks to John &amp; Ramona Rohrer

MAY THE CHURCH’S GLORY BE LIKE THE FIRSTLING OF THE BULLOCK

MAY THE CHURCH’S GLORY BE LIKE THE FIRSTLING OF THE BULLOCK


407

“The greatest of men are nothing before the wrath of the great God.” – Matthew Henry.

The “bull” is mentioned several times throughout the Bible. In all instances, it is pictured as a symbol of great strength and power. Nonetheless, in some instances, it is used to illustrate how power is used for evil – in opposition against Christ and the spread of the Gospel.

In Psalm 22:12, we read – “Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.”

This Psalm was written by David, but it can also apply to the Lord Jesus as well as to every believer.

As already mentioned, the “bull” is noted for its great strength. In fact, it is an emblem of brutal strength – in that it gores and tramples down all that stands in its way.

In this instance, David described his enemies as those who – with the fierceness and fury of a bull – insulted, surrounded, and rose up against him. These wicked, violent, and powerful foes longed to gore him to death with their insidious plots and schemes. They were not a few – but “many.” They were likened unto the “strong bulls of Bashan”- those who were fat and fed to the full.

It is interesting to note that the country of Bashan – situated on the east of the Jordan River and north of Gilead – was a rich, fertile, pasture land that yielded the “rams of the breed of Bashan” (Deuteronomy 32:14)the “oaks of Bashan” (Isaiah 2:13)and the “king of Bashan” (Amos 4:1). These “strong bulls of Bashan” were the largest and fattest in the country – remarkable for their size, strength, and fierceness.

They came to represent any and all men who were fierce and furious – pushing at others with their “horns” and authority. Like bellowing wild cattle, these savage and violent assembly of the wicked would plot, scheme, enclose, and eventually kill their innocent “victim.” This is seen in the instance of Absalom and Ahithophel rising up in rebellion against David as well as in the example where the chief priests, scribes, and Pharisees gathered together at the foot of the Cross to kill Jesus.

Again, we see the same idea of a formidable, terrible enemy acting like a wild beast – pictured in Psalm 68:30 where David prays – “Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter Thou the people that delight in war.”

David had in mind the “wild beasts of the reeds” – the lion in the thickets of Jordan as well as the hippopotamus or crocodile that lay under the covert of the reeds. These strong beasts typified all strong, antichrist nations which took pleasure in opposing Christ and making war with His saints.

He prayed – “Rebuke the company of spearmen.” In other words, restrain. chastise, or destroy these treacherous and cruel ones whose weapons are spears – likened to reeds. They are “the company of spearmen” who refuse to be ruled by the Lord Jesus Christoppose Christianity on all sidesand persecute God’s servants. Confound their devices, O Lord…decrease their maliceand wipe out their pride.

They are “the multitude of bulls” who dash against the Church of the Living God. These leaders are fierce, warlike, proud, headstrong, and “fat” with wealth and power. And they have the poor and common people – “the calves of the people” – influenced to oppose Christianity as well. They are “the people that delight in war.”

David understood that it only took one – “Thus saith the Lord God” – to stop them in their wild pursuits. And the Almighty would respond by – not only treading them under foot and causing them to prostrate themselves before Him – but He would also cause them to finance His kingdom work – “till every one submit himself with pieces of silver.”

The Prophet Isaiah mentioned the “bull” in Isaiah 34:7 when he said – “And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.” Here he was using three particular names of oxen to describe the lords of Edom. The “unicorn” – also pictured as the rhinoceros with its single thirty-six (36) inch horn – with its strength and fierceness – typified the princes and the potentates of Edom. These leaders were to be smitten by the sword, be slain, or fall down along with the less powerful Edomites – “come down with them” – typified by the lambs, goats, and rams. “The bullocks with the bulls” – representing the young and old Edomites – would also be slain. Together, their blood would fertilize and make rich the land where their bodies lay slain under the sword. 

In all three verses of Scripture mentioned above, we saw how the “bull” was pictured as a fierce enemy.

However, in Deuteronomy 33:17, we find a reference to Joseph’s descendents – Ephraim in particular – who was likened unto a “bull” in a more positive light – “His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim; and they are the thousands of Manasseh.”

Here we see Ephraim – raised to the honor of firstborn by Jacob – likened to “the firstling” of Jacob’s oxen. The “bullock” was considered as a favorite among the Jews because of its usefulness in their sacrifices as well as in agriculture. In appearance, it was considered to be a noble, dignified, and stately creature. Its “horn” – “like the horns of unicorns” – was an emblem of strength, glory, and sovereignty. With its “horns,” this tribe “pushed,” drove away, overcame, and destroyed all its enemies – the Canaanites – who stood in their way of conquest. Through Joshua – who was of the tribe of Ephraim – Israel smote the thirty-one (31) kings of the surrounding country – and conquered their land. Like a “bullock,” this renowned tribe lived up to its reputation as a warlike tribe – noted for its strength, courage, triumph, and power over its foes.

God desires that His church’s “glory” be “like the firstling of His bullock.” He desires that she would be warlike and with “the horns of unicorns” “push the people together to the ends of the earth.” In other words, that she would “invade” this world with the Gospel.

There is one last note that we must consider as a warning. In Psalm 78:9, it is recorded in the Holy Scriptures that – “The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.”

How could this be? How could this tribe which was so warlike and fierce against its enemies become so weak and defenseless?

The answer is found in the next two verses – “They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in His law; And forgot His works, and His wonders that He had shown them.”

Through disobedience and unbelief, Ephraim lost its power and influence among the nations. The church – though its calling is for triumph and the greatest display of supernatural power – will also appear weak and defenseless before her enemies if she follows the same pattern of sin.

May the church’s glory be “like the firstling of His bullock.”  May she – with the horns of unicorns” – “push the people together to the ends of the earth.”

Be strong in the Lord, Saints!  Go forth today and conquer! May God give each of us “thousands” and “ten thousands” of souls.

For His glory, honor, and praise!

May God Bless His Word, Connie Giordano.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. (Isaiah 54:17)

TWO CHOICES


403

Read This Let it Really Sink inThen Choose How You Start Your Day Tomorrow…

Michael is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, “If I were any better, I would be twins!”

He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Michael was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Michael and asked him, “I don’t get it! You can’t be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?”

Michael replied, “Each morning I wake up and say to myself, ‘Mike, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.’ I choose to be in a good mood.

“Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.

“Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.”

“Yeah, right, it isn’t that easy,” I protested.

“Yes, it is,” Michael said. Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. “The bottom line is: It’s your choice how you live life.”

I reflected on what Michael said. Soon thereafter, I left the tower industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.

Several years later, I heard that Michael was involved in a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Michael was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.

I saw Michael about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, “If I were any better, I’d be twins. Wanna see my scars?”

I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place. “The first thing that went through my mind was the well being of my soon-to-be- born daughter,” Michael replied. “Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or I could choose to die. I chose to live.”

“Weren’t you scared? Did you lose consciousness?” I asked.

Michael continued, “The paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read ‘He’s a dead man. ‘I knew I needed to take action.”

“What did you do?” I asked. “Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,” said Michael. “She asked if I was allergic to anything.

‘Yes,’ I replied.

The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, ‘Gravity.’ Over their laughter, I told them, ‘I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead’.”

Michael lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude. I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully. Attitude, after all, is everything.
