“And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake” (Luke 5:6)Text — Luke 5:1-9
Elder Bryan Mathison counselled on faith: “When you have faith in God, you don’t have to worry about the future. You just know it’s all in His hands.” The quote elucidates the word “faith” that has been aptly described as ‘Forsaking All I Trust Him.’ The situation in the Bible text is a demonstration of how those who exercise faith in God’s word, throw away their own ideology, and do exactly what God says to enjoy a harvest of miracles.
Apostle Peter and his fellow fishermen had fished from dusk till dawn without catching any fish. Then arrived the Lord Jesus in their boat, the Creator of oceans and the fishes therein. He ordered Peter to throw his net in the lake again for a catch; but Peter first doubted. He was still holding to his human experience. We should learn to drop our own idea and believe the Lord like Peter. A living faith brings net-breaking miracles. For the Christian youths, daily obedience to God in shunning evil practices and preaching the gospel to sinner mates guarantees them divine interventions.
A living faith brings… miracles
Learn to drop your idea for God’s own.
