After you try in your strength, let Jesus work

I want to function at my maximum potential, and fulfill my dreams, and be in the middle of God's will for my life.

Does this sound like you?

After you do everything you know to be successful, and yet you know there is more to accomplish, try launching out into the deep waters for the more.  Yes, right where you just worked overtime on the more, and did not get the more.

Listen to what Peter, the wise and experienced fisherman, who worked all night, said to Jesus, after Jesus told him to go back out and fish some more for what you did not catch last night: 
Luke 5:5:
5 Simon answered and said, "Master, we worked hard all night and caught nothing, but I will do as You say and let down the nets."

Christian's go back and revisit what you did in good faith, and with sound reasoning, and with proven and tested methods, but did not get all you expected.  This time go back with deeper connection to Jesus.  Go back with deeper faith in Jesus, and most of all, go back upon the command of Jesus (one night too soon, will get you nothing despite hard work).
Go back when Jesus says you are really ready, and go back with the power and blessings of Jesus upon what you are doing.

Take the human stress and struggle out of your efforts, and let Jesus add to your sincere efforts, divine power, His favor, and His perfect timing.

What can you expect?  
Look at Luke 5:6-7.

How should you respond?  
Look at Luke 5:8-10.

What should you do next?  
Look at Luke 5:10-11.

God Bless,

Pastor Kennedy (MZO)
