When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.” Luke 5:4

Peter was a fisherman. Problem was, he had been up all night struggling,  and the catch wasn’t looking very good!

Jesus came by and offered a suggestion. It didn’t make any sense to Peter’s fisherman mind. Deeper water? That isn’t where the fish hang out! Who does this guy think he is?

But there was something about “this guy” that caused Peter to obey. And there they were: so many fish they could barely contain them.

What issues are you struggling with today? What have you exhausted yourself trying to do in your own strength? Jesus has a suggestion: Go deeper. Go deeper in His word, His truth, His wisdom, His presence.  What was impossible for you alone is no match for the Everlasting One.

Stop trying to fix things by yourself. Go deeper with Him, and you will find all you need to overcome.
