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.
MEMORY VERSE: “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” – Isaiah 10:27
God is the only giver of uncommon anointing and when it comes, you will do uncommon exploits.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
TODAY, GOD SHALL ARISE AND ANSWER YOUR PRAYER BY FIRE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
In yesterday’s devotional, we noted that there is nothing the anointing cannot do. It can do practically anything. According to today’s fire scripture, Peter and his colleagues. had toiled all night with the hope of catching fishes. They had inherited the business from their father, so there is no doubt about their expertise. But this particular day, they were confounded and confused. Why? They had failed at what they knew how to do best.
Dearly beloved, when failure wants to visit a man, it does not recognise professionalism or expertise and neither will it take experience into consideration. But when the anointed Jesus said in verse 4, “Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught”, Simon Peter did not believe what happened next, because they enclosed a great multitude of fishes; and their net brake. But the wonder of it all was that the fishes did not fall back into the sea. I pray for you, in that place or that point where you have failed, may you receive greater success and celebration, in the name of Jesus.
The anointing works wonders. A woman had just one boy and the husband died but the powers that killed the husband were not satisfied. They wanted the life of the son and they also killed him. The woman had lost hope, but as they were taking the boy for burial, Jesus appeared on the scene (Luke 7:11-14). Beloved, the story changed and the sorrow party they were having before the arrival of the Anointed Jesus turned to a celebration. The Lord turned their mourning into dancing. He can do the same for you. Are you weeping for the loss of valuables or loved ones? Are you bowed down without helpers? Is the burden too much for you? Jesus the Yoke Breaker says, “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden….” (Matthew 11:28).
The anointing of God, come upon me and destroy my stagnation, in the name of Jesus.
Anointing of failure in any area of my life, be destroyed, in the name of Jesus.
O Lord, arise and fight my battles, in the name of Jesus.
O Lord that answers by fire, answer my prayers by fire, in the name of Jesus.
I shall not labour for others to eat, in the name of Jesus.
Holy Ghost fire, ignite my life, in the name of Jesus.
Anointing for faithful service, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.
Lord Jesus, come into my life. I accept You as my Lord and Personal Saviour. I believe in my heart You died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank You Lord for saving me, in Jesus name Amen.
