Wednesday, 8 October 2008 . 21:34One day as Jesus was preaching on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, great crowds pressed in on him to listen to the word of God. He noticed two empty boats at the water's edge, for the fishermen had left them and were washing their nets. Stepping into one of the boats, Jesus asked Simon, its owner, to push it out into the water. So he sat in the boat and taught the crowds from there. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Now go out where it is deeper and let down your nets, and you will catch many fish." "Master," Simon replied, "we worked hard all last night and didn't catch a thing. But if you say so, we'll try again." And this time their nets were so full they began to tear! A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking. When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, "Oh, Lord, please leave me – I'm too much of a sinner to be around you." For he was awestruck by the size of their catch, as were the others with him. His partners, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, were also amazed. Jesus replied to Simon, "Don't be afraid! From now on you'll be fishing for people!" And as soon as they landed, they left everything and followed Jesus.
Luke 5: 1-11
Simon took a step of Faith. And his step of faith pays off big time -- their nets were so full they began to tear (vs. 6).
He was OBEDIENT! He did as the Lord asked.
He stepped out by FAITH! He did as Jesus asked. Often we are called to do something, but we doubt! We fear the responsibility, we fear what is to come, we FEAR! But if we really and truly believe that God is a God of love, can we fear Him? God has "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.
So when we're called to do something, when we get that gutt feeling which we cannot ignore, when we try following the world or ourselves in one direction but our insides, our heart... God is pointing the other way... just surrender. Just let go. Just focus your step in God's direction. And even if u don't know what is going to happen next, just have Faith! God honours that step in Faith, and He will fill our nets with an abundant catch!
