Main Text: Luke 5:1-9

5 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret,[a]the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God.
2 He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets.
3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”
5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”
6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” 9 For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken,

May God Bless the reading of His Word.



What does it mean to flourish?

Flourishing means to grow, thrive, prosper and have vigorous abundance in excess.



There are three levels of people:

  1. "Not enough": Poor and survivors - Deuteronomy 15

  2. "Just enough": People who have enough for themselves but enough for others

  3. "More than enough": People have a lot to spare. When God takes you to those levels, you should be a blessing to others.


Take Home Notes

When God makes you to flourish, he expects you to be a channel to help other people and be a blessing.

  1. There is a day in every man's life that your day of flourishing will come. Ex: Elon Musk, Peter

  2. God will show up most of the time when we are at out wait end: Ex. Peter, Saul 1 Sam 9:15-16: It is when you get to the wait end, that's when God shows up for you.

  3. Your ship can be an attraction to God to work out a miracle in your life, which guarantees favor from God - You can only flourish if God is in your boat: 1 Kings 4:17; 17:8-15

  4. Miracles come in ways that are beyond your imagination: It's not everyone that will flourish but it is God that makes us flourish: Luke 5:4 - the key to our flourishing is in our simple obedience.


Conclusion

What to do to flourish?

  1. Learn from other people's mistakes

  2. Always listen to God's instruction

  3. Watch the type of company you keep

  4. You must learn to hunger for God and have the capacity to receive

  5. Not every Christian will not be able to handle wealth because they are not faithful


If you don't desire to flourish, it won't come - Pastor Francis Tekobo

Genesis 1:27-28; Psalm 25:6-7: Mark 5:25-29; Daniel 3:20; Revelation 3:7


Quote of the Day:

When you are flourishing, affluent, and in abundance, bu your offsprings are not, it means you are not doing well - Pastor Francis Tekobo
