Launch Out

Launch Out

Scripture: Luke 5 v 4
"Now when He had left speaking, He said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught."

Here we are at the start of a brand new year with all its promise and potential waiting for us to make something of it. God has a plan for each one of us to maximise this potential.

We want to line up with God's promises and stretch to meet His expectations. Its a time to boldly go where we have not ventured before, spiritually speaking.

We have been filled with the Holy Spirit and His anointing is fresh every morning. He wants us to launch out into the deep of the Spirit of God and discover the excitement of new revelations and new directions that open you up for growth in the knowledge of God.

We have seasons of growth and seasons of quiet. Spring is when everything is fresh and new like this year. Fruit trees are full of blossoms in Spring and we too should be blossoming and bringing forth new life.

We have this life of Christ manifesting within us. Jesus in our heart is changing us to be like Him. Our part is to have faith to believe we can be like Him. We often have just a carnal sense of our abilities and neglect that we are spirit beings that have a soul and body.

Our spirits were dead before Jesus came in and we were born again. Our spirits came alive but they need to be exercised. They need muscles and boldness to reach the heights Jesus has for us.

When Jesus told Peter to launch out to bring in a load of fish, Peter complained that he had fished all night and caught nothing. Jesus must have smiled at that and laughed when Peter brought in a huge catch.

When we launch out under Jesus direction expect miracles and wonders for the power of God is at work to become a testimony to bless others. Its like when Summer comes and the fruit is ripe and ready for picking. That becomes fruit for the Kingdom of Heaven.

Prayer: Heavenly Father our new year has begun and our zeal for You is pouring forth. We are ready to launch out to gather in the harvest of lost souls needing a home. Direct our steps in the way we should go. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Prophetic Word: My precious brothers and sisters, welcome to the new year of promise and discard the baggage of the past. I have made all things new and as you listen to My voice directing your steps and follow My lead so you will achieve much for Me and for yourselves. I have blessings in store and this will be a year of miraculous healings and strong testimonies as your prayers have come up for a memorial before God. My word has gone forth to bring them in from the highways and the byways so that the lost and helpless and lame and blind will find peace for their soul and food for their spirit. Be obedient to My directions and follow Me for I will lead you to places where you never thought of going to reach people you never knew and shine your light of knowledge into the far off places. I am Jesus and I love you all with a love that knows no bounds.
