Simon replied, “Master, we worked hard all night [to the point of exhaustion] and caught nothing [in our nets], but at Your word I will [do as you say and] lower the nets [again].” (Luke 5:5, AMP)
Week by week the Lord is gradually ushering our steps onto a higher ground. Let’s not forget that on Christ the Solid Rock we stand, and Nothing shall be impossible if we keep moving forward…always moving one step ahead of the other.
In Luke 5, Peter and his colleagues had worked hard all night and caught nothing. In the natural, it was game over. Their own strength, skills, abilities, expertise, knowledge, etc could not produce desired result. When they thought it was over, that was where Jesus showed up. This reechoes what someone said that Faith begins where ability ends.
This is a new week. Probably things didn’t go as planned last week, It is easy to give up and think that “well, this is just one of the days…I win some, and lose some”. It doesn’t require faith to give up because decision to give up often depend on physical evidence(s). But NOTE that we walk by Faith not by sight.
Behold a new dawn has come and Jesus wants you to lower your nets again. This time don’t rely on your capability (ies) and do as the Lord, through the Holy Spirit says. Get up and do it again.
This is a new week for a new beginning therefore forget about what didn’t work in the past and focus on Jesus and His Word. Remember, Step by step, week by week, the Lord is guiding/leading you to a higher ground.
God bless you and have a faith-field week.
Jesus is ushering me to the higher ground. Praise God forever more.
