We have fished most of our life together. Sometimes seriously. Other times causally. As I remember that this morning I hear God speak to my heart.
Even as the right bait makes all the difference in the outcome so too the wrong bait changes everything.
God help us this morning to not allow the bait of Satan to be what we cast out. We won’t catch anything good with it. His bait has names. Disappointment, discouragement, despair, hopelessness, jealousy, hatred, animosity, revenge, and more. Cast these out and we only get more tangled lines and no good food for our hearts.
Oh beloved, you and I are part of a vast ocean of victorious believers. We will throw out the bad and embrace the good. We want God’s provision not the flesh. So we repent of anything that doesn’t match the heart, gifts and fruit of God. We also throw off fear for faith and fear cannot be cast in the same throw. We thank you Lord for your sea of forgetfulness where we never have to fish again.
God you love us and You are for us. We humble ourselves before You and live in The Light of Your Word.
Romans 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.
I John 4:18 Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.
Hebrews 12.28 Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe;
Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'”
