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.”
When Jesus told Peter to launch out into the deep waters and he’d catch a great haul of fish, it went against all of Peter’s professional fisherman logic. It didn’t make sense in the daylight hours, but when Peter obeyed Jesus’ word, his nets were so full of fish that they started to break. It’s simply a matter of God putting the fish, the provision, the healing, the good breaks, right where you need them even though they weren’t there before.
Is God asking you to do a hard thing? Don’t talk yourself out of launching out into the deep. You can’t reach the fullness of your destiny without net-breaking obedience. If you take that step when it’s hard, you’ll see God show out His greatness in your life. When you pass that test, you will come into moments that thrust you into your purpose. If you could see what’s on the other side of that obedience—the joy, the favor, the victory—you wouldn’t put it off. The question is, Will you have net-breaking obedience?
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for the dreams and desires that You put in me that are bigger than I can achieve. It looks too big for me, nevertheless I know that with You all things are possible. I believe that when I launch into the deep, You will bring me net-breaking blessings. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
