18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.

22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:

As we all know, it is very clear from the Bible that God wants His children to prosper (3 John 2). Jesus also became poor for our sakes so that through His poverty we might be rich (2 Corinthians 8:9). As much as God wants His children to be prosperous, no believer can ever prosper fishing in the wrong water. Are you fishing in the wrong water?

From our Fire Scripture, the encounter of Jesus Christ with the fishermen-turned-preachers changed their destiny. It could be said that Peter, Andrew, James and John had a vague understanding of what the Lord created them to be. They were meant to be fishers of men, but they were labouring to catch fish. For as long as they were in the wrong business, they were fishing in the wrong water.

Beloved, one of the reasons many Christians are still experiencing one form of poverty or the other is that they are fishing in the wrong water. Ask yourself sincerely how you got into the business you are doing now. The career path you have chosen, how did you arrive there? What about the business partnership you are struggling to keep? The ministry you are running, who led you into it? The truth is that as long as you keep doing the wrong business or pursuing the wrong career, you will be fishing in the wrong water that brings futility.

If these fishermen had not encountered the mercy of God, they would have died as unknown, unfulfilled and unsung personalities who spent all their lives running in the wrong track of life.

This is a serious issue beloved, and I think the wisdom of Paul is needed here. The first question Apostle Paul asked Jesus during his encounter was, “What will you have me to do?” (Acts 9:6). The Lord responded and gave him a clear directive that saved him from fishing in the wrong water. If you don’t want to spend all your days in penury, ask Jesus Christ to open your eyes to see what He has ordained for your lifting in life.



  1. O Lord, open my eyes, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Powers assigned to confuse my life, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Holy Ghost, envelop my life, in the name of Jesus.
