❓Have you ever grinded as hard as you could only to; take an L, get benched, not get promoted or go undrafted? That’s where Simon was in Luke 5:4-7.
😤He gave it all he had and Jesus told him to go harder, put more into it and keep hope alive despite the colossal failure he just went through.
‼️To excel athletically, and more importantly to live the life God called you to live you have to know His word well enough to maintain a positive outlook on life.
💯You also must keep it a buck (100) with yourself and know that despite your positive disposition that extreme failure awaits.
🤔How many times have we relied on our feelings to navigate through failure and as a result we gave up hope prematurely?
👉🏾Instead allow God to lead you through your losses, just as in Simon (Peter’s) case your breakthrough may be lying in the deeper water.
📖Luke 5:(MSG)4When he finished teaching, he said to Simon, “Push out into deep water and let your nets out for a catch.”5-7 Simon said, “Master, we’ve been fishing hard all night and haven’t caught even a minnow. But if you say so, I’ll let out the nets.” It was no sooner said than done—a huge haul of fish, straining the nets past capacity. They waved to their partners in the other boat to come help them. They filled both boats, nearly swamping them with the catch.
