Just One Word

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.”

“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.” And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear!  Luke 5:4 – 6 NLT

One word from the Lord changes everything.  Simon and his partners (fishermen by trade) had done everything they could do in their own strength.  Their results?

Zero.

Yet by obeying one simple command from King Jesus, a command that made no sense to them, they experienced results beyond their wildest dreams.

What have you exhausted yourself on without seeing results?  Why not stop your striving, look up, and listen to what the Lord has to say about it?  Be sure to follow it through, even if it makes no sense at the moment.  Obey Him and see what He does.  That’s called living in the Reign.
