Use your Mouth! Get your Fish!
A Word by Edie Bayer
The Lord spoke to me and said that we need to pray for our big fish, because He wants to give it to us.
I believe He has said that it is time for the body of Christ to finally have their big fish. Whatever that fish is for you, it’s time! However, there is a “catch”, pardon the play on words. We must pray for the strategy that He wants to use and then follow it.
Watch this! In Matthew 17:27 Jesus says to Peter:
“Go down to the sea and throw in a hook;
Take the first fish that comes up
And when you open its mouth you will find there a shekel
Take it and give it to pay the temple tax for Me and yourself”
Jesus is giving Peter instructions to get money, which is found in the mouth of the fish, which he is being told he must catch – but he WILL, because Jesus is telling him he will. This is good news for you and me, because now He is speaking to us! I believe He is saying that He is going to bless you big time. However, you must DO WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO DO! If He tells you to go to the sea and throw in a hook, do it! If He tells you to switch sides of the boat, do it! If He tells you to give money to someone, do it! If He tells you to feed someone, do it! If He tells you to pray for someone, do it! In the words of his wise mother at Cana, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” (John 2:5 AMPC)
Now, since God uses people, and the angels hearken to His word, that means we must use our MOUTH speaking the word in order to activate this process! In Greek, the “mouth” is sharp, like the leading edge of a sword. The word also means a SLICE, like a single cut made with a very sharp object. This sounds like the Sword of the Spirit to me!
So, putting those two together, here is the plan:
Pray for the strategy for the fish God wants to release to you, and Pray the word to put your angels to work!
Then bless somebody with it, and it will come back to you pressed down, shaken together and overflowing. God will use people to pour into your bosom!
Hallelujah! Enjoy your fish!
