Navigating to Success

May 27:2019

When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking.
Luke 5:4-6


An expert in a field will consider him or herself an authority in that area. It usually sparks arguments when there is a questioning of that expert's submission on matters surrounding his or her field by someone who is clearly a novice with respect to that field. For instance, a surgeon would consider it an insult if a carpenter were to tell him how and when to go about his procedure!

In our text above, Jesus was clearly out of line, humanly speaking. He was a carpenter and if anyone knew about the timing for catching fish, it would be Peter. That position would have been that of pride and it would have cost Peter the catch of his life! He quickly humbled himself and accepted Jesus' instructions to launch out again and it paid off.

As a child of God, be open to God through the leading of the Holy Spirit and learn to adapt to changes He asks you to make in any area of your life. To experience the unprecedented, we must be humble and let the Holy Spirit lead us, even if it is an area or strategy we have never practised before.

Beloved, God is ready to do the unthinkable and the unprecedented in your life this year as you yield to His leadership. It will surely come to pass. Amen!

Additional Scripture Reference(s): 1 Peter 5:5-6
