BIBLE PASSAGE: Luke 5:1-11
INTRODUCTION: At a point in Peter’s life, he came to his wits end and he saw the limits of human wisdom, knowledge and abilities. His best could fetch him nothing, not even a fish. Then, he had an encounter with Jesus and this produced a turning point. Getting your breakthrough is not necessarily dependent on new techniques discovered but on fresh revelations received from the Master. In this lesson, we shall examine the product of fresh insight into the word of God.
REVELATION PRODUCES TRANSFORMATION
Peter heard what he had never heard before and saw what he had never seen before as he waited upon Jesus while He was ministering in his boat. A divine revelation was brought to his door step, which brought him in direct encounter with Jesus. He knew that those words were not ordinary – Matt.7:29; Lk.4:32. He saw the word bringing positive outcome, hope to the hopeless, life to the lifeless and changes to the static, so he made exception of the word. – Lk.4:33-36, 38-41; Lk 5:5; Jn.11:41-44.
BY-PRODUCT OF TRANSFORMATION
Revelation produces its recipient a platform, a foundation on which to lay desires and requests. If you catch the revelation of the word, you will take God for His word and it will surely work for you like it did for Peter who said, “Lord, at your word…” What he got next were two ships full of fishes. To embark on that journey, or job, agreeing on that marriage proposal or taking a crucial decision, hear God’s word. If in doubt after receipt of the word, ask God for confirmation, and then safely act – 1 Cor.3:11; 1 Kgs.17:16; Ps.119:101, 11, 49; Jer.15:16; Ezek.3:3; 1 Sam.30:6, 17-19.
The transformation in your life that came as a result of divine revelation will produce a platform upon which your miracle will roll in.
