Many times in life I’ve been faced with situations where I had waited long enough and wanted to give up. Recently I was chatting with my dear brother in faith Jerry Turk. After what seemed like a very long pause, he said only one thing…”Cast your net on the other side of the boat”. Now, me being me, I just had to jump on the Internet and find that verse so I could read it exactly and in context. The verse says on “on the right side of ship”, and there is where I got hung up…so I prayed. For 2 days. And the answer came.
It’s not so much about which side of the ship or boat Jesus told the disciples to lower their nets…It’s about dropping those nets in One. More. Time.. The truth of the matter, is that they had fished all night, and not caught one single thing. Yet, there is Jesus saying, drop your nets, and ye SHALL FIND.
Not only is this speaking to us on the natural level, that in life we should never ever give up (having done all to stand), but that in our relationship with Jesus, we should continue to press in, never stopping to get to know HIM in a more profound way. For those that seek, find. Matt 7:7
Ephesians 3:19 says, And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. That verse has been food for my soul, to know that Christ loved me so much, that HE died on the cross, atoned for my sins and made it possible for me to be one with HIM, and to be filled with all the fulness of God!
My prayer for all the Body of Christ is that you might cast your nets one more time in 2015, to be willing to let go of past experience (they fished all night and caught nothing) and respond to the call of Jesus Christ in this hour…to comprehend what it means to be filled with *all the fulness of God*.
“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. Heb 6:2”
Seek HIM, beloved, and YE SHALL FIND
