Topic: In Christ You Are Connected To Divinity [Wednesday October 4, 2017]
And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.” (Luke 5:5 KJV)
In Luke 5:1-11, you will find the account of a man called Simon. He was a fisherman and he was an expert. He had skills in fishing. The scripture tells us that he went to fish at night. He knew the right time to fish. He went with his net. He knew the right tools to use. He went with his partners. He had the right partners. Everything was perfect. Yet he toiled all night and caught nothing.
All he depended on failed, until he connected to Jesus, the rock of ages, the ancient of days, our rest in our weary land, the way maker. The God that shuts and no one opens. He opens and no one shuts. When you connect to divinity, you won’t be ordinary. As believers, we are not ordinary because in Christ we are connected to divinity. We are connected to Grace. That is our right. That is our heritage. You are connected. Christ is our head, we are his body. The head and body cannot be separated. The benefits he has we have. The victory he has, we have too.
When Peter connected to divinity, he caught the type of fish he has never caught in his life. Then it dawned on him that he had connected to a superior platform, the grace platform. When he laboured and toiled there was no fish but as soon as he connected to grace, fish came. From this moment forward, you will no more struggle because you are connected to divinity. You have been anointed to succeed. You will never fail. Every utterance that is affecting your manifestation is nullified. Your season has come. The rain is on in your desert because in Christ you are connected to grace. This month, the outstretched hand of the Mighty God shall manifest in your life.
