“Gone Fishing”

Absorbing God’s Word

“Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” Luke 5:5

Applying God’s Word

God is constantly asking Louise and I to let down the nets to catch the opportunities that He presents to us. We do our best to be obedient to that call on our lives.

One night, while out dancing and in conversation Louise and I brought up the subject of faith to a few different people. Not even a nibble. We resigned ourselves to the reality that we were going home without a single catch. As we were leaving, a young woman stopped us and complimented us on our dancing. It was a reminder of how she and her late husband had danced. She got emotional. I extended my hand and asked if I could pray with her. She nodded yes and placed her hand in mine.

God oversees the catch and He knows exactly where and when He wants us to let down the nets.

Accounting of God’s Word
