Word of the day: Luke 5 vs 5 – Let Down The Net

Memorize: And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. Luke 5:5 KJV
Luke 5:5 – EASY – Simon replied, ‘Teacher, we worked all last night and we did not catch anything. But because you say it, I will put the nets into the water again.’

Luke 5:5 – AMP – Simon replied, “Master, we worked hard all night [to the point of exhaustion] and caught nothing [in our nets], but at Your word I will [do as you say and] lower the nets [again].”
Luke 5:5 – NIV – 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.”
Isaiah 5 vs 5 in Yoruba
Simoni si dahùn o si wi fun u pe, Olukọni, gbogbo oru aná li awa fi ṣìṣẹ, awa kò si mú nkan: ṣugbọn nitori ọrọ rẹ emi ó jù àwọn na si isalẹ.
Key: The refusal to obey divine instruction is the acceptance of frustration. Your provision is connected to divine instruction. Until your ear hears what God is saying and does them, your hands cannot handle what He is giving.
Also, your next level in life may not come until you have completed your last instruction. After Peter had let down his net and caught a great number of fish, Lord Jesus made him one of His disciples. (And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.” Luke 5:10).
Thus, obedience to God is sacrosanct in the life of a Believer. (Read also: https://www.ferventxtian.com/word-of-the-day-deuteronomy-28-vs-1-blessings-of-obedience/)
Prayer: Lord, help me to hear you whenever you speak and to obey you always.
