Fishing lessons (2)

11 July 2021
‘He and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish.’

Lesson two: God is interested in your success. Peter knew Jesus was a great teacher and that He could even heal the sick. But what he was about to learn was that Jesus wants us to succeed in our work. Peter probably had good nets, owned a good boat, and knew exactly where to catch the most fish. And his income depended on a good catch. But after fishing all night and catching nothing, Peter made the best move of his life: he got Jesus involved. We might lose sight of the fact that God wants to be involved in our work. We can involve Him by making our work available to Him to use any time for His glory, so He’s able to minister to people through us while we’re working. We often try to separate secular things from spiritual things; we have our Christian life nicely partitioned off from our work life. But this prevents God from using and blessing our work. God says: ‘I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow’ (Isaiah 48:17 NLT). We might think that if the work we’re doing isn’t for a church or a ministry, then God can’t or won’t use it. But He wants to be involved and give us His wisdom and guidance in all areas of our lives, and He can use the work we do to bless others in way we couldn’t have imagined. Work takes up a large part of our day – imagine the difference it could make if we invited God into that time too.

 

What Now?

Are there any areas of your life that you feel God wouldn’t be interested in? Ask God to reveal to you how He can use those things and give you a vision of what He could do through you if you let Him into those areas.
