Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things.
4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” 5 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.”
6 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking.
7 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”
5 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.”
Our opening Scripture tells us that father Abraham was old, and well advanced in age, and the Lord had blessed him in all things. That is very much like what God has planned out for you, to have a blessed life just like Abraham. God wants you to grow old, not die young, and well advanced in age, not come short in age, and to be blessed in all things, not blessed in some things. Think about that. Give it some serious thoughts. Meditate on the picture of God’s dream for you. Let Abraham be the frame of that picture. Do not think outside of Abraham’s frame of God’s picture for your life. Father Abraham is a template of God’s dream and will for your life. Isaiah 51:1-2 admonishes everyone that seeks the Lord and follows after righteousness which is of faith, to look to Abraham. Abraham is the frame of God’s dream picture of your future. You now have a template to pattern your life after. You now can say, as it was with Abraham, so it is with me. You have graceful longevity before you for the taking. You now can believe for all-round blessings, like Abraham your father. You now have a colourful picture of life and destiny before you with Abraham’s life and walk with God being the colour and frame of it. Hallelujah!
Galatians 3:29 tells us that every one that is born again, that is Christ’s, is Abraham’s seed, and an heir according to the promise God made to Abraham. Abraham did not die young. So, stop thinking death at a tender age. You are the seed of Abraham. Refuse every thought of dying young. You will be old, and well advanced in age, like father Abraham. Say Amen to it!!! Keep that picture before you, don’t let the devil steal it from you. Again, God blessed Abraham in all things, not in some things. Quit seeing yourself blessed in some things, and lacking in others, no! That’s not God’s dream picture for you. God wants you blessed all round: a good spouse, a good job, good children, a good family, a good marriage, a good house, a good business, a set of good degrees or certifications, a good ministry, a good career, good health, good relationships with people, a good everything, and ultimately and primarily, a good relationship with God. That’s what your life is like. Believe God’s dream for you NOW!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION)
In Jesus’ Name, I declare that I am made in the image of God; prosperity dignifies God’s image; therefore, I have the mindset of prosperity. I have more than enough; I am blessed, and I am a blessing. I am the seed of Abraham, and I have and live life like Abraham. Amen
