The Little Fish
This story comes from a little book that we really appreciate. ABIDING STORIES, by Michael Wells
If you ask a roomful of Christians to raise their hands if they want to be closer to Jesus. How many do you think will raise their hands?
Everyone who raises his hand is in unbelief. We cannot get any closer to Jesus than to have him dwelling in us.
When we work for what we already have, we will lose what we already have .A great deception in our Christian walk is to look for what is already ours. We don't need more, but we do need a revelation of what we already have
There is a story of a little fish who was asked by a bigger fish what was the desire of his heart. The little fish responded that he would love to see the ocean.
The bigger fish said. "But don't you know that you are already in the ocean?" The Little fish said, "But is this all there is?"
The big fish replied" By looking for something else you have been ignorant of what you have always had. Go and enjoy the big ocean.
The little fish took off and discovered that his world had no boundaries.
His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
The author goes on to say and I quote, "For the Christian there is no such thing as behavior problems, there are only belief problems. He has given us the very thing for which so many continue to search. This awareness must come through revelation."
