// Read Luke 5:1-11 //

One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret,[a] the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.

When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”

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.”

When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.

When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, 10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners.

Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.

Most of the times we want God to use us but we are not ready to empty ourselves of ourselves of the things that hinder God to use us. The Lord Almighty needs an empty the boat of your life He can only step in when you step out (Verse 3). Let him have what is not yielding result in your life, turn it to the Master. There is nothing emptied for Jesus that He won’t fill back whether life or business, properties or your purse. In fact, He would not return the blessing at the same capacity; He will feel the double boats.
PRAYER: Oh Lord I yield my life unto you use it for your glory.
