4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
The Background to this text is that Jesus had been crucified and now Peter is wondering what to do. He now decides to go fishing and the other disciples also accompany him. At this point it is quite dark and as a result they caught nothing. For Peter, this could be seen as a major block because he is a fisherman by trade and now for him to not catch any fish, it just doesn’t make sense.
Morning came, Jesus approached and asked if they had caught any meat, Peter said no. At that point, Jesus told him to cast his net on the other side, the right side. When Peter did as commanded, he brought in a multitude of fishes. Wow, look at that, a multitude of fish. It was more than he had expected.
In life, there are going to be times that the things we are doing will stop working, it won’t be productive. How will you respond. What do you do when the thing are used to doing doesn’t work any more, what will you do when you catch nothing? For too long, we keep doing things our way instead of God’s way.
Our perspective of a situation will be different to God’s perspective of our situation, he can see the whole situation and everything around us.
‘Cast your net on the other side’
It may seem difficult but the answer really is that simple. Listen to God and cast your net on the other side, you will soon bring in multitudes of blessings.
Peter was in the fishing business, Jesus then stepped in and then told that he will be a fisher of men. He transformed it into a kingdom business
Allow God to step in and use what you currently do and transform it and use it for the kingdom
‘Cast you net on the other side’
Bless you all, Step out in Faith and Cast your Net
