John 21:6 “He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.”
When I am not in the middle of God’s will, I can work hard all night long and not accomplish anything. But when I am in line with God’s plan and purpose for my life, God’s abundance is all around me. Jesus has a way of working all things together for our good (Rom 8:28).
Is there some aspect of your life today where you feel like you have been rowing upstream for a long time and you still haven’t gotten anywhere? Or maybe you feel like everywhere you turn and everything you put your hand to fails miserably? Could it be that Jesus is standing on the shore calling out to you today? “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” Hear His words to you this time. “Do this (whatever this is for you) and you will find what you’ve been looking for.”
Jesus didn’t scold them for going fishing. He didn’t put them down for not catching anything. Nope. Jesus showed them how to do it His way, with His help, in His timing, so that they could receive His blessings! Thank you Jesus!
