​DARLING, 

:

What’s stopping you from moving a step further?

What’s your fear about that place you wish you want to get to?

:

Have they told you no one has ever succeeded in the same field you’re seeking success?

:

My mission right now is to deal with your fear!

Do you remember Peter? Yes! The Apostle Peter of the Bible?

:

They toiled all night looking for fish! Fish was no where to be found! He wasn’t alone, he had company of friends and rivalries! He had people like him who were busy looking for success in the same place he was! Both competitors and partners were toiling to no avail! There was no sign of progress, in Africa it would have been assumed that their village people are behind their failure…

:

It was in the midst of this dryness that Jesus appeared! They had been discouraged by themselves but Jesus came with a different news! They had toiled all night, they had given up and was getting ready to leave. Then Jesus said 

:

“Take the boat into the deep water. If all of you will put your nets into the water, you will catch some fish.”  

:

Naturally, they would have ignored Jesus and moved their way! They were experts, this wasn’t the first time they were experiencing such dryness and the best thing they had always done was to give up! Jesus didn’t come fishing, Jesus didn’t look like a fisher! But Simon Peter had to listen! He quickly submitted to the Lordship of someone he was just meeting for the first time! Why?

:

Every other person had come with discouraging messages! They have been previously encouraged to give up! But for someone to come and say a different thing Simon knew there was something special about Him! And he said

:

“Master, we worked hard all night trying to catch fish and caught nothing. But you say I should put the nets into the water, so I will.” – Lk. 5:4‭-‬5 ERV

:

To cut the whole long story short, Peter obeyed and the once dry place became fertile in a twinkle of an eye! Peter’s net was breaking as a result of overflow of blessings!

:

How did it happen? It happened because they obeyed Jesus and ignored the voice of the experts!

:

Where are you experiencing dryness?

Where have they told you that you cannot succeed?

Who has been discouraging you and asking you to give up on that dream?

:

I have a news for you! You don’t have to wait for Jesus to come again! He has already come and all you need is to trust and obey! Peter trusted and obeyed, he just didn’t experience miracles, he decided to follow Jesus!

:

Your case isn’t different! You can still make it, you can still get better! No wonder, Peter knew this so much and he wrote in 1 Peter 5:7

:

“Cast all your cares upon Him for He cares for you!”

:

What’s that problem? What’s that fear? Come on! Sit up and never be afraid! Cast your cares on Jesus and trust Him to care! 

:

That vision is possible!
