4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.” 5 “Master,” Simon replied, “we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you say so, I’ll let the nets down again.” 6 And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear! 7 A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking. (Luke 5:1-7 NLT)
Did you ever have one of those days when nothing went right, when everything you tried went wrong? That was the kind of day Peter (James, John, and Andrew) had fishing. They were shut out and did not catch a single fish until Jesus told Peter to try again. He did and caught so many fish that they filled two boats.
What happened before the amazing catch? Peter and his partners listened to Jesus. What do you do when you have a bad day? Have you ever thought about listening to Jesus? Did you ever stop to think about what God says to you in His Word and then ask God to help you get through this tough day? It just might give you a better outlook on the day or help you through a rough night.
