I’m Billy Epperhart and welcome to God Today. I’m the author of the book Money Mastery. I’m also board member on Andrew Wommack Ministries and a consultant for Andrew Wommack Ministries in Charis Bible College and today I have a word today I want to give you from the book of Luke chapter 5 and it says this, “That no one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one, otherwise the new makes a tear and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old and no one puts new wine into old wineskins or else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled and the wineskins will be ruined.” I believe Jesus here in Luke chapter 5 is really talking about what I like to call the law of change. it’s always a challenge when God wants to bring new wine into our lives.
I want to encourage you today that you can change and be all that God wants you to be and the reason I share that with you is this, is that many times we feel challenged about being able to change and become what God wants us to be. What we’ve got to do is give God a new wineskin in order for him to put the new wine in our life.
I heard a story several years ago about two men that were out fishing — actually one man was fishing, the other was watching him fish. They were on a pier in California and the man that was watching noticed that the man was fishing was doing a peculiar thing. He noticed every time that he caught a small fish, he would take the fish and he would put it into his bucket and then every time he caught a big fish he would literally throw the big fish back into the water. So, the man watching him came up to him and said to him, “Sir, I noticed you’re doing a strange thing.” He said, “I noticed that every time you catch a small fish, you keep it and every time you catch a large fish, you throw it back.” He said, “I’m just curious. Can you tell me why?” And the man that was fishing just paused for a moment and then he said, “Oh, sure. That’s easy.” He said, “I only have a 10-inch skillet or a 10-inch frying pan.”
In other words, his skillet was limited in size and so, today as you’re watching God Today, I just want to encourage you to be willing to give God a new wineskin or a new skillet for your life so that God can do for you and put in you all that you need for your life. This is Billy Epperhart. Thank you for watching God Today. Bye-bye.
