TODAY'S WORD FOR TODAY
God Will Help You to Succeed
‘…All…were astonished at the catch of fish…’Luke 5:9 NIV
‘…He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because You say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signalled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch… Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.” So they…left everything and followed Him’ (vv. 4-11 NIV). Here are seven life-changing truths you need to learn: 1) Jesus will come to where you work and help you; 2) When what you are doing is not working, He will show you a better way; 3) Even though it may not make sense at the moment, do what He tells you; 4) The success He has in mind for you is greater than anything you can envision for yourself; 5) Your existing systems may not be able to handle what He has in mind, so be willing to change how you do things; 6) When you experience His goodness, you’ll fall at His feet and acknowledge Him as your Lord; 7) When you realise what He has in mind for you, you’ll leave everything and follow Him.
