Winning Wisdom: Instructions And Capacity

Winning Wisdom - Instructions And Capacity

Topic: Instructions And Capacity [Friday, 21st July 2017]

And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.  Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. John 21:6‭, ‬11‬

We’ve always said of how, when God gives you an assignment, you need not use your own strength, as He will make His strength available to you (Romans 12:10). Another issue that comes up is the capacity to hold the blessings He’s given us. We’re all aware that it is one thing to get to the top rank, and another thing to maintain THAT SPOT. God doesn’t just want us to have blessings, He wants us to be able to keep these blessings we have, be it finance, influence or people.

While Christ was praying in John 17:12, He recounted how He kept the souls He received on earth. God wants that to be THE TESTIMONIES OF ALL OF US. Since, however, we are limited in both strength to get, and capacity to hold, how then can we keep what we have received?

The story in John 21 was of how Jesus instructed the disciples to cast their net, which they did, and they caught fish. Now scripture records in verse 11 that they caught a hundred and fifty THREE (153) big fish. It was expected that their net should break from such huge catch (remember Luke 5:6), but it didn’t . What was the difference? John 20:22 “And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost”. THEY had received the Holy Spirit, which gave them capacity to hold that which they were blessed with, that their net should not break.

We received the Holy Spirit upon salvation, and it is left to us to tap into the abundant capacity in Him, so we can retain that which the Lord has given to us. God doesn’t give instructions and blessings without making provisions for achievement and sustenance. Understand and accept this gift today, and live in full capacity that the Holy Spirit provides.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Father, thank You for Your thoughtfulness towards me. How you see all and provide all. Help me to yield to Your Holy Spirit, so I can have full capacity to experience Your blessings, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
