1 Pet 4:7b-11; Ps 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 7-8a, 9-10a and c (R.v.3); Luke 5:1-11

My dear, God does not demand for so much from us before he can do wonders in and through us. He only demands that we might have faith in him and be ready to cooperate with his grace in us.

Consider the encounter between Jesus and Peter in Luke 5:1-11. Peter was a professional fisherman. And Jesus, if anything at all in the eyes of the society, was a carpenter. So Peter was in a better position to give orders concerning fishing. But Peter, who had caught nothing all through the night respected the orders of Jesus and the result was that their boats was almost sinking due to big catch.

I pray for you today that as you release yourself to the will of God, divine blessings and manifestations in your life would outweigh your expectations and bring you deep joy through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Imagine the joy that St.  Patrick would have felt at the conversion of Ireland through him. Ireland was a pagan country and Patrick was a slave there. After his miraculous escape, he got a call to go back to Ireland as a missionary. He was ordained a priest and sent there at his request. He later became a bishop there and went through the width and breadth of Ireland preaching the good news. Not only did Ireland get converted, they produced missionaries that evangelized many parts of the world including Nigeria.

Can you see that? A one-time slave converting his slave masters! That is the power of God at work. Imagine that Patrick refused to answer that call, Ireland would have probably remained pagan nation.

Discover that gift that God has given you and use it to further his purpose for the glory of his name (cf. 1 Pet 4:7-11). Be sure of this: his blessings will flow into your life and sink your frustrating boat of misfortunes. Amen.??

I wish you a faithful and miraculous day ahead. It is well with you.
