“Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat.”
Peter (Simon at the time) had just finished trying to fish with no avail. Him and his guys begin to clean the nets as Jesus jumps in his boat and begins to preach. “Hey Simon, push Me out a little bit.”
Peter does so in obedience. Soon as the message is done he is now asked to pull into the deep and try to fish again. I could imagine he thought to himself, “Man I just cleaned my nets, this guy doesn’t know fishing, it’s late, I’m tired, my guys know there’s no fish…” Instead he simply says, “I have and nothing, but whatever You say.” Soon after, he’s calling the other boat and BOTH begin to sink from the amount of fish they caught!
When you use your time, talent, treasure to serve Jesus, He will always take care of you. Psalms 37:25 “I have never seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread.” When God says go, don’t think about it, GO! He got you! It might not make sense, but faith will always cause you to sink in blessings.
Father may we be ever sensitive to Your direction and obedient to You even when it doesn’t make sense. We have trust in You and that You’ll always take care of us. Use our boats to declare Your glory and sink us in Your blessings.
