Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given you today is from the book of John 21: 4-6, “Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” No, they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish”. In this passage, we see that, Jesus goes to meet His friends (disciples).
Peter was one of His disciples. This incident took place after the resurrection of Jesus. Jesus’s friends had been fishing all night but did not get any fish. With compassion towards His friends, Jesus told them to throw their nets towards the right side of the boat. When they obeyed the word of Jesus, they were able to catch a huge amount of fish. Their fishing nets tore as the fishes they caught were surplus. Jesus knew that they would be tired and hungry after having toiled all night. He then decided to prepare some food for them.
Jesus understands what you need even before you ask for it. He knows your heart. He wants to comfort the brokenhearted. God awaits you with compassion, at your doorstep. He is coming to you to give you all that you have lost in life.
The book of Mathew 4:19 says, “Then He said to them, “Follow Me, andI will make you fishers of men.” When you obey to the voice of God and follow Him, He will make you fishers of men. God has promised that He will never leave you nor forsake you. His grace is sufficient for you my beloved. The Lord says that He is going to bless you the way He blessed Peter. When you listen to the voice of the Lord and invite Him into your hearts, you will prosper in all that your hand finds to do. You shall eat the fruit of your labor and be prosperous.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. I pray that You bless Your dear children the way You blessed Peter. Lord, help them to obey to Your words. Father, may they prosper in all their works. May they shine for You wherever they go. In Jesus name we pray,
