My husband is an avid fisherman. He will take our grandson and spend hours baiting his hook with those nasty worms to catch a few fish. I must admit, he rarely goes fishing without catching anything. Reading in the Book of John, I can imagine the exasperated fishermen who fished all night and caught NOTHING. John 21:3 says, “Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a- fishing. They say unto him, we also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately: and that night they caught nothing” (In the King James Version of the Holy Bible). The Bible says Jesus asked them to fish on the other side of the boat and their long night of nothing turned into something. It always amazes me how quickly Jesus can turn things around. What a fish story they had to tell!
Prayer: Today, I need to hear from You, Lord. My efforts seem to have been in vain. Let me hear Your voice directing me. I know You have the answer! In Jesus’ Name! Amen!
