TOPIC - ACT ACCORDING TO HIS WORD

Read: Luke 5:1-7

 [1]And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,[2]And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.[3]And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.[4]Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.[5]And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.[6]And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.[7]And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.

MEMORISE: But Simon answered and said to Him, "Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at your word I will let down the net_ (Luke 5:5).*

EXPOSITION
Many a time, we do act according to circumstances around us. In several occasions, it is our situations that dictate our prayer points. Many Christians speak, react and live their lives according to what they are passing through in their lives. Frankly speaking, it does not work out like that in the Kingdom of God. Believers must start to live by faith and not by sight.

Simon Peter is our good example in the Bible. When Jesus asked him to launch out into deep, to let down his nets for a catch, Simon told Him that they have tried all they could during the night, and they caught nothing. The best time for fishing was at night. Nevertheless, Simon acted according to the Master’s word and it worked for him miraculously, even beyond his expectation. *And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking* (v.6). Simon did not only believe in the Word, but he also acted upon it.

It is one thing to believe in the Word of God and it is another thing entirely to act upon it in any situation we find ourselves. There is power in the Word of God. It is the same Word that God released to create the heaven and the earth. No one can separate God from His Word. Whatever God is capable of, His word also is capable of. In fact, the Word of God is as potent as God himself. As from today, learn to act according to God’s Word, for it is your road map in your journey through Life *(Psa. 119:105).* It is your staff of authority *(Matt. 4:4,7)*, the key to your prosperity *(Psa. 1:1-3),* and medicine for your body *(Prov. 4:20-22).*

PRAYER POINTS
1. Add more to my faith, Oh Lord, to enjoy your goodness in my life through the pronouncement of Your Word to my situations.
2. I am blessed and highly favoured, because Your Word says it.
3. By the power in the Word of God, no weapon formed against me shall prosper.
