I have participated in the Luke study put on by Good Morning Girls. I decided to go ahead a use some of the lessons here.
Determination and His timing are
in this passage. Are you determined to try one more time? Do it the way God is
prompting? Peter and his partners fished all night and caught nothing. They
cleaned their nets while Jesus used their boats to minister to the people on
shore. Tired, wore out, done fishing for the day, Peter was ready to go home.
He had fished most of his life. He knew how to fish. This night just didn't
produce anything when he did everything he knew about fishing.
Jesus then gives
him specific directions to catch fish. It went against everything Peter knew
about fishing. In the deep? During the day? No, that isn't how you fish. What
if Peter said no? What if he allowed his pride to say 'I know better, I did it
how it's suppose to be done with no avail.' He would have missed out on the
abundant blessing of fish. Missed out on a chance to spend the rest of his life
I will listen for when God says go - this time it's in my
timing, abundant blessings are waiting for you. Only time with Him will allow
me to recognize His voice, His prompting.
