Luke 5:4 (MSG)
When he finished teaching, he said to Simon, “Push out into deep water and let your nets out for a catch.”
If you’ve read the Gospels, you are familiar with this story. Simon and his coworkers had been fishing all night and caught nothing. Then Jesus tells them to do this.
Using that deep water thought, what area of life might God be telling you to push out? What if He knows something you don’t and all you have to do is respond like Simon, “If you say so”?
- It’s possible you’ve done all you can in the water where you are; it’s time to trust God by going into deeper water.
- It’s possible you’ve exhausted all your resources in doing the same routine, doing what you know; it’s time to follow God in doing something new in deeper water.
- It’s possible you’ve matured beyond the needs of your current location; it’s time to believe God has more for you by stretching you in deeper water.
Why be content in your “all night’s” work?
Why not consider the possibilities where God is offering to guide you?
