Trust and Obey

Luke 5.jpg

When he had finished speaking 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.”                                     Luke 5:4-5

Is there something God has asked you to do that seems unreasonable? Don’t allow the fear of failure, desire to control your own life, or even others’ expectations to hinder you from submitting to Him. 

Peter learned this important lesson one day as Jesus spoke to the crowds by the Sea of Galilee. The people pressed in so insistently that Christ was forced to get into Peter’s boat in order to continue teaching. When He was finished instructing them, Jesus said to Peter, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch?” (Luke 5:5 NKJV) Peter was reluctant, of course, he had toiled all night without catching any fish and was terrible weary. And Jesus was not a fisherman. What did this Teacher know about fish?

Eventually, however, Peter chose to obey. The result was that he witnessed a miracle, he caught so many fish that his nets began to break.

This is why it’s so important to obey God even when He doesn’t make sense. Because He knows best and has blessings for you that you’ll not experience any other way. So every time the Father asks you to do something do it and trust He has something good in store when you obey.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends

  1. Reminds me of this old song…“Trust and obey for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.”

    As you mentioned, we must take each step He leads us to take otherwise we’ll never find out what He has in store for us up the road. ❤️
