This week the Lord quickened these verses to me from Luke 5. Some people may feel like they have been toiling hard for the Kingdom in their ministry, especially in evangelism, but the breakthrough has not happened yet.
You may feel weary and discouraged but the word today is “Launch out into the deep and let your nets down again for a catch”. If you have put an aspect of your work or ministry for the Lord down then perhaps the Lord is speaking to you today by His Holy Spirit as he did to Simon Peter. Let your nets down where the Lord shows you.
We may need to step out of our comfort zones as the Lord takes us into different and deeper waters. The Lord may be leading you to a new fishing ground.
Even though the men were weary, they had fished all night, they had already cleaned their nets to be put away, Simon Peter showed faith in Jesus. Peter is saying despite my experiences and what has happened I am going to do what you say. He was immediately obedient. The result was a miraculous catch of fish.
“When He (Jesus) 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. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.”
