Fishing lessons (4)

13 July 2021
‘Launch out into the deep and let down your nets.’

Lesson four: God’s plan for your life often involves stepping out of your comfort zone. That’s because He wants us to live by faith. Why did Jesus say to Peter, ‘Launch out into the deep’? Because that’s where the big fish are. Most people live in the shallow waters of life. They’re satisfied to exist on a superficial level. There’s little depth to their lives; they’re content to play around the edge, never going further into deeper water. That’s because we feel safer in shallow water. We think, ‘If I get out into the deep water, there might be some waves. They might disrupt me and make me uncomfortable. So I’ll just stay back here where it’s familiar.’ We can have this same attitude in our walk with God. We trust Him up to a point, but we’re reluctant to step out of our comfort zone and into the unknown with Him. So we’re content to stay in the shallows – and we miss out on so much. God’s plans for us are good plans, ones that will work for our benefit (see Jeremiah 29:11-14) and for the kingdom’s benefit. God says to us, ‘Let Me get into your boat. Let My presence be with you wherever you goin your work, in your hobbies, in your family, in your relationships, in every area. Let Me direct you. Cooperate with My plan, and I’ll bless you beyond your wildest dreams.’ We might feel uncomfortable or unsure, but God can soothe all our doubts and fears, and show us what amazing things He can do through us when we trust Him.

 

What Now?

Do you feel that God’s asking you to step out of your comfort zone? Ask Him to help you put all your trust in Him and give you a fresh sense of His peace.
