“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…”
(Luke 5: 7)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
When Peter got his net breaking miracle, he invited his partners who turned out to be James and John. Though James and John had a ship that Jesus didn’t use, they were connected to the person whose ship was being used by Jesus. They didn’t enjoy same attention as Peter, but they were still partners.
When Peter’s net was filled, the first beneficiaries were his partners. What began as a positive partnership brought positive benefits to James and John. They connected to a man who Jesus had blessed, and they became partakers of the blessing. They had a strategic connection that brought them benefits.
Friend, God will give you strategic connections that will bring benefits. God will bring you men whose blessings will flow into your life. God will cause you to enjoy the overflow of people you are connected to; God will open the doors of your life to strategic relationships that will be beneficial and profitable to you. God will bring you partners that will be a huge blessing to your life.
When you see men who are blessed, connect to them and you will enjoy God’s blessings through them. The fact that someone around you is blessed should not be an occasion for hate and envy. The fact that someone around you got blessed before you does not mean that your own blessing is not on the way.
James and John were both blessed because of the right partnership they built with Peter. The right partnerships will bless you, but wrong partnerships will take your destiny down the drains.
Hebrews 10 vs. 24 says: “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:”
Pray With Me: Lord, bring me strategic connections/partnerships that will bless me, in Jesus’ name!
