Wisdom Fishes

Fishers of Men

Any one remember this one? Click on picture above to see!

In Wisdom He made all things and in Wisdom He Redeems all Things Through us!

Lets take a look at Proverbs 11: 30 “The fruit of the [uncompromisingly] righteous is a tree of life, and he who is wise captures human lives [for God, as a fisher of men–he gathers and receives them for eternity].” In addition we see in Psalm 104:24 “O Lord, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all. The earth is full of Your possessions”
God in wisdom made the earth and all the creatures in it. His plan was good and wise. It depended on us carrying it through, because satan and his gang had made earth their retreat and we were supposed to gradually redeem the earth. Except we mucked up and continue to do so! So, bearing in mind we are made in God’s image and that we are now a new person, we can say we have Wisdom. And Proverbs 11:30 tells us that the wise person captures human lives for eternity. Why is this wise? I still feel like I don’t know the full answer, though I have a feeling the Lord is saying something to me like . . . ‘because I made the world in my image it was something beautiful, I know you have questions, but, know this, I made you out of love and have sought to redeem you out of love, because you are something beautiful to me. Each person you see with my heart, I also made. And so, having the same mind (wisdom) you begin to desire strongly for that person or this person to be redeemed. Know that your worship of me and the intimate pleasure you and I take in each other, increases your desire to see them redeemed. And you are not alone, my Holy Spirit empowers you to tear down the strongholds in their lives (the things on which they rely). And then, having their eyes opened to the futility of their own strength, they begin to see me! (because you show them me) And their desire is awakened. I made you to be worshipers, I made you to be “fishers of men.””

Dear Lord, set our us on fire with a desire for you that is so strong that our hearts and minds line up right along with yours. We want to be so driven to ‘fish’ for people that we just can’t help ourselves! Amen
