Topic: Do Things God’s Way
[Jesus] said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. — Luke 5:4-6 (NKJV)
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional 22 July 2020 Message:
In today’s scripture, after a long night of not catching any fish, Jesus tells Peter to try one more time. What Jesus told Peter to do probably didn’t make any sense to him, and I doubt that he felt like doing it, but he still did what Jesus said, and he received what was probably the biggest catch of his fishing career.
Like Peter, being led by your thoughts, ideas, and emotions won’t bring in a big catch. But when you do what God says quickly, whether it makes any sense to you or not, your blessings will amaze you!
Prayer Starter: Father, please help me to trust Your voice over everyone else’s, including mine. Thank You for giving me the grace to follow Your directions when they don’t make sense, and for the blessings that are coming! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
