The disciples had been fishing all night and hadn't caught anything. Jesus said, “Launch on out and try it again.” I'm sure they were tired and probably a little discouraged. They had worked all night, had done everything they knew to do and, in spite of all their efforts, they still had nothing to show for it. They didn't feel like it, but, because Jesus said it, they decided to try it one more time. We all feel that way sometimes. I don't have all the answers, but I know you can't give in to those feelings - you have to try one more time.
There were plenty of fish out there and Jesus knew where they were. All the disciples had to do was go where He told them.
God has given you this day and He knows where all the fish are. One word from Him and there will be more fish than you know what to do with.
Maybe it would be a good idea to go with His plan instead of mine. Think I will - how about you?
Hey, I want you to have a blessed day and catch all the fish Jesus has for you.
