BIBLE READING: MORNING: HOSEA 1-4. EVENING: JUDE.
TOPIC: WASHING YOUR NET ALREADY?
TEXT: “And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.” Luke 5:5.
It is discouraging when we put so much effort into something, yet the output is minimal. It is painful when we sacrifice so much but the results are poor. This was the situation of Peter and the other fishermen. As professionals, they strategically toiled through the night, yet they caught nothing. The scripture says in Luke 5:2 that they were already “washing their nets”. Is it possible today that you are already washing the net of your prayer life, the net of your salvation, the net of your vision or life dream because you have put in so much effort with no commensurable results.
Do not be dismayed, experience may have failed you but the word of God is forever tested and trusted. Just one word from the Lord and your obedience to His word will produce your long-awaited results. Move-in response to His word and see God overwhelm you so much that you will also be a blessing to others.
In spite of the great miracle in Luke 5:6-9, James and John left all and followed Jesus (Luke 5:11). Learn to set your priority right today. Being with the Master daily should be of greater importance to you than the miracles we receive from Him. With the master, miracles are normal occurrences.
Lord, help me to launch out at Your word in spite of facts that may stare me in the face…
