The Reality of God’s Overflow – Peter’s boat sinking experience
Scripture Reference: “When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!” – Luke 5: 18
I want to believe you are already tapping into the visions of overflow. I am excited about the new things that will be birthed through this revelation. Peter experienced overflow in the reference scripture above. On this particular day, we can categorize Peter as a frustrated fisherman. He, however, had an encounter with Jesus after his boat was used for the gospel. Peter had an unforgettable experience that night. Verse 6-7 made it clear that after following Jesus instruction, they caught a great multitude of fishes so that the net began to break, and the boat began to sink. Wow! – A net breaking, boat sinking blessing!
For a man that had caught nothing all night, just enough would have been a testimony, but God is not just enough, He gave Peter more than enough. I had to ask why the net began to break while the boat started to sink? And the Holy Spirit said, “That is the signature of God.
When Peter saw it, he was ‘afraid’ (verse 8). You talk of fearful blessings! The God who knows the number of our hair knows the amount of fishes that would have been just enough for Simon Peter’s boat, which means the overflow measure was deliberate, it was intentional. It was showing forth His way of doing things. God is not a man.
My desire is for businessmen and women to experience such in their business endeavors. A fisherman that had nothing to show suddenly had to call for partners to help him with the overflow measures coming from heaven. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. What he did for Isaac, Jehoshaphat and Peter, he will do for you, if you will align yourself to covenant demands. It’s your turn!
Daily digest: Read Luke 5: 1 – 11
Prayer: O Lord endow me with the required mental skill to interpret every opportunity that comes my way correctly and take maximum advantage of them in the name of Jesus. I receive total liberty from the embarrassing yoke of debt in the name of Jesus
