“Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” – Luke 5:5
The disciples have labored hard throughout the night without catching any fish. They were experienced fishermen and knew there were no fish to catch. Yet, at Jesus’ words, they let down the nets once more. According to the Scriptures they caught so many fish that the nets began to tear. And so their faith was rewarded.
When you lay a matter before God you should trust Him so much that you are willing to accept His will and be obedient to the prompting of His Spirit no matter what. Forget about what others think or say; trust God unconditionally and He will reward your faith.
I place my trust in you completely, Lord Jesus, in the knowledge that you will never disappoint me. Help me not to disappoint you through my unbelief. Amen.
