Habakkuk 1:14-16 MSG
You’re treating men and women as so many fish in the ocean, Swimming without direction, swimming but not getting anywhere. Then this evil Babylonian arrives and goes fishing. He pulls in a good catch. He catches his limit and fills his creel— a good day of fishing! He’s happy! He praises his rod and reel, piles his fishing gear on an altar and worships it! It’s made his day, and he’s going to eat well tonight!
There are many believers who are swimming without direction. They follow a man or others without thinking or having a relationship for themselves. They are like fish swimming in the water but getting nowhere. We get nowhere in our faith when religion and emotional control is involved. Fish stuck in a net who are captured by the enemy's deception, the people of God are this way. The enemy is rejoicing over this deception and laughing at his catch for the day. Woe unto fish in the net. Woe unto the ones stuck in a stream going the wrong direction. Holy Spirit is crying out for the people of God and asking for them to come out from the net. Come out and be free. Holy ones arise and be free.
