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.
Insight: Obedience can be difficult as we walk through life’s struggles. Just as God filled Simon’s boat with fish, he wants to bless you beyond measure, but requires that you put your trust in him and live according to his word.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for loving us as we continue to grow. Help us today to be obedient in the midst of life’s challenges and to be thankful for your blessings and grace. Amen.
