“And He said to them, ‘Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.’ So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish” John 21:6, NKJV.
All night some of the disciples had been pursuing to make a catch and nothing worked. Jesus told them to cast your net on the right side and you’ll find some. When they did what the Lord said, when they decided to do it God’s way, then they reaped abundant success.
There have been times where I just came to the end of myself. I came to an end of my ability, doing it my way, leaning on what I think will work and going in the direction that seems best, and continuing to find myself not reaping in life. Only when I did what the Lord said, is when the plan and blessings of God unfolded for me.
There are great blessings in store for you. Your fulfillment is at the door. Your financial increase is so close. Yet, it will only be experienced when you honestly answer like Peter that you haven’t caught anything. Like Peter, you come to the end of yourself, your own understanding, your own intellect, and what makes sense to you. It is time to give up trying it your way and do it His way. Save your efforts and do it your way no more. Surrender your plans for His. Let this be the year you cast your net to the other side instead, and you will find every single blessing unfold before you.
Prayer: Father, I have come to the end of myself. I’ve tried and like the disciples, I’ve caught nothing. I decide to do what You have been telling me to do. I decide to live like You’ve been telling me to live. Help me to have faith in Your plan, Your ability and I thank You for every single blessing unfolding before me. In Jesus’ name Amen.
