John 21:6: Cast the net on the right hand side of the boat. Luke 5:4-11: Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch. At your word, I will cast the net and he caught a great quantity of fish. Then Peter left everything to follow Jesus. Someone said he who is a Christian but is not wholehearted is more dangerous than an unbeliever. Jesus did not leave Peter even after he had denied Jesus. Genesis 28:15: I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you. God was so passionate for Jacob even though Jacob was not so much. God does not forget His promises even though we forget sometimes. When nothing is working in our life, everything is coming to zero, yet God still has left opportunities for us. John 21:9: Jesus wants to work in cooperation with us. Jesus is always ready to restore us even though we have failed miserably.
Jesus had a compassion and merciful look, I too want to have the same look. Is 55:8 God’s thoughts and ways are different from ours. When we fail, we can still come back. Acknowledge that we failed completely. He will not leave us alone. He will fulfill every promise.
One word that encouraged me is Jesus loves me even when I had failed. All things might have failed but Jesus is alive. Good things we carry with us after death. When all hope had gone, Christ is still alive. Mark 16:9-14: Jesus reproached the disciples about their unbelief and hardness of heart. We need to get up and repent even after I fall. He has started a work and He will fulfill it. Let us have a childlike faith.
There is a right hand of Jesus with us always. Jesus never put us down but have us hope always. His word is unchanging, eternal. Job 42:2: You can do all things. No purpose of Yours can be thwarted. Always hope in His word, nothing else. God is teaching me to stand on His promises; nowhere else can we stand unshakeable.
Proverbs 3:5,6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart. In all your ways acknowledge Him. God helped me to forgive people who cheated me and tell gospel and pray for them. God encouraged me with this verse, Proverbs 3:8: It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones.
John 21: 4-10: We try on our strength and we don’t get anything. We need Jesus. God’s ways are not our ways. The Shepard went after the one who was lost. God is our loving Father. Philippians 1:6: He who has started the good work will complete it. Isaiah 43:4: He does everything because we are precious is His sight.
The faith of the woman whom Jesus said He did not come for her. She still did not leave Jesus but was ready for the crumbs. Isaiah 43:13: Noone can deliver out of My hand.
Am I a very good woman that God has created me for. There is a lack of faith in me even though He loved me unconditionally. We need to hold on to the hope. Not doing anything to please others.
