Topic: Creation Obeys His Voice [Monday December 4, 2017]
“And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.” Jonah 2:10 (KJV)
In the book of Jonah chapter one, God gave Jonah an instruction. But rather than obey God, Jonah decided to run. The God of all flesh then spoke to a fish in the sea saying soon I am going to be throwing down somebody by the name Jonah but I don’t want you to eat him because he is not for you to eat as food. I just want you to keep him for a while until he recognises that God rules in the affair of men. When Jonah repented and was ready to do the Lord’s bidding, God again spoke to the fish to vomit Jonah on the land because Jonah could not swim. And the fish obeyed. That same God will do wonders in your life. Whatever has swallowed you up will vomit you.
In Matthew chapter 17, God also spoke to another fish to swallow up a coin. Fishes naturally don’t eat metals but God said to the fish swallow the coin. In other words, keep it because I will need the coin. So when it was time to pay tax, Jesus sent Peter to the exact sea where he had instructed the fish to position itself for Peter’s hook. As soon as peter cast the hook into the sea he brought out the fish with the coin. Child of God, understand that when the time comes for your need to be met, nothing will stop you. God can speak to any of His creation on your behalf and they will obey Him
There is a fish somewhere carrying your millions. God will position that fish for you. By the mandate of heaven, you will never be stranded. Money will not embarrass you and money will no longer limit you. From today, blessings will begin to gravitate towards you. God will show up in your life. You will eat the good of the land and your barns will burst forth with plenty. You will not be denied.
