“And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.” Luke 5:5-7 (KJV)


Before Jesus showed up, Peter and his team were washing their nets out of frustration and defeat. Washing their net was a sign-off: It is over. When you go into any endeavour without Jesus, what you will be doing is toiling. That is why you need Jesus. It is toiling without Jesus.


The moment Jesus stepped into Peter’s boat, everything turned around. Beloved, all you need is Jesus. When Jesus enters your boat, never take it for granted. You should be celebrating! When He made His choice to enter your boat, you had better open up. When Jesus stepped into the boat, He sat down. The sitting position is a position of rest. In other words: No matter what you are facing, all is well. No matter what you are facing, it is all covered. I am in control of it. No matter the challenge, you are not going to end up in shame or disgrace. No matter what the enemy has done, stop being anxious; you have come to the right source.


Peter sat down and listened to Jesus. The struggle had ended. Efforts had ended. Expertise and skill had ended. His hope was now in Jesus. And when he responded to the instruction of the Master, he had an unprecedented catch of fish. Peter responded to the Word of Grace. The Word of God will never fail. The Word of God is infallible, errorless, impregnable, and authoritative.


Peter “…was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:” Luke 5:9 (KJV). Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. What He did for one, He will do for another. He will do wonderful things in your life. Rest in Him.
