Peter Found A Good Catch - Bro. T. Stephen

My   Dear   Brother  and  Sister in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and Ever Unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The Blessed word that the  Lord   has  given  for you today is from the book of  Luke 5:5, “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.”

My  Dear  Brother And  Sister,   From the above context we  see how Peter went out fishing. Jesus got into the boat of Simon Peter, and sat down  and  began to teach the multitude from the boat. After he had stopped speaking to the multitude he looked at Peter and said, “Launch out into the deep. And let down your nets for a catch.”’But then Simon said to Jesus, “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 called  the  men in the   neighbouring  boat, to come and help them.  And they  filled both the boats, and they were almost sinking. Peter couldn’t believe his eyes. He immediately fell  down at Jesus’ knees.  For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken.  

My Dear Brother And Sister, Alone we may not receive victory but with Jesus we have victory. Peter obeyed Jesus and so he was blessed. That is  why apostle Paul says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  “ Though Peter  was an expert in fishing yet he couldn’t catch any fish, even though he tried the entire night  to catch fish in the deep sea.    But the moment he obeyed Jesus,  he found a good catch. God is looking at you and saying, are you going through great loss in your business, or in your financial situation, are you paying the workers from your purse? Are you unable to pay your rent, are you worried that you couldn’t catch  anything like Peter? God says, you will catch. You will find. Don’t be worried.  The Blessing of the Lord will surely descend upon you if you will only obey His word and live according to His commandments.

My   Dear  Brother  And Sister,   On that day when Peter  went to catch fish, he returned as a failure.  But the next morning with the blessings of God and with the counsel of  God,  he threw the net where Jesus had directed him to throw, and he caught great many fish.   Jesus turned his failure into success. The Bible says,  The young lions do lack and hunger but they that seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. God does not withhold any good thing from those who walk uprightly. Let not the book of law depart from your mouth. But you shall  meditate  in it day and night, and  observe  to  do according to all that  is  written  in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. God bless you.

Prayer:  Our loving heavenly Father, we   thank   You    for   this  blessed day. Dear Lord,  thank You for teaching us not to be like Peter  who  went away from God. But  to be  drawn close to God.  Teach us to listen to the voice of God  and walk according to His word.  May  we  realize the importance of being with God and be directed by Him in all our ways,  so that we may inherit His blessings.

 In  Jesus Name We Pray.

Amen.
