Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 7:7-10 (KJV): Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
In our theme scripture, the bread represents the Word of God and the fish represents souls of men.
When Christ uses the allegory of the fish and bread, He seeks to point us to what our ultimate prayer as children of God should be: the Word and souls.
That is why you must always ask God to TEACH YOU and USE YOU to win souls. That is why we seek God! Fish and Bread: souls and the Word.
It is deception to think that in asking, seeking and knocking, it is so God gives us cars, jobs or houses.
There is nothing that money can buy that equates to a soul. There is nothing money can buy that equates to the Word of God.
That is why we spend on the Word: we buy truth and sell it not. That is why we do all we must do to win souls to the kingdom!
At the end of your life, you must have fish and bread to show for your days on the earth!
The principle of multiplication is around fish and bread for when He(Jesus) has fish and bread then He feeds the five thousand.

It is deception to think that in asking, seeking and knocking, it is so God gives us cars, jobs or houses. There is nothing that money can buy that equates to a soul. There is nothing money can buy that equates to the Word of God.
PRAYER: Father, I am greatly humbled by this truth. These great words give me a reason to live for they cast light on a cause that is greater than self. I thank you for redefining my desires. I thank you for pointing me to fish and bread as the ultimate focus of my prayer: to win souls and to know your Word. I pant after these things every single day of my life. You satisfy me Lord, with this sum of all good things. To the glory of your name. Amen.
