Heart matters

Pushing out into deep water

I must admit, I have been terrible at blogging recently… but that’s mainly because of server/internet problems.

Life has been so melancholy recently. I don’t know… there is something about human beings and not getting your way that kinda doesn’t gel 🙂
On Monday at Family Group, they prayed over me and God spoke to me.
He basically said, HELOOOOOO!! I am still God!!!!! Just wait on me!!!!!

My friend, Aneesa, gave me Luke 5:1-7 (see below) which speaks about the time when Jesus told the disciples to put their nets into deep waters. They were a bit sceptic since they had been attempting to catch fish (to no avail) whole day. But they did as he instructed and soon drew their nets up and it was full of fish!

I think that God is saying: Even though it looks impossible and depressing and negative and melancholy 🙂 in reality, when I am in the boat with you, your nets are never really empty!

So today, I dare you to ignore what REALITY says, and stand on what God says.
Put aside what the doctor and the bank and circumstance and LOGIC is telling you and put your trust in the Word of God.

I dare you to push out into the deep and still waters of who He is… right into the midst where the impossible can happen! That’s where He does His BEST work!

I dare you!!!!!!

Luke 5

1-3 Once when he was standing on the shore of Lake Gennesaret, the crowd was pushing in on him to better hear the Word of God. He noticed two boats tied up. The fishermen had just left them and were out scrubbing their nets. He climbed into the boat that was Simon’s and asked him to put out a little from the shore. Sitting there, using the boat for a pulpit, he taught the crowd.When 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.8-10 Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell to his knees before Jesus. “Master, leave. I’m a sinner and can’t handle this holiness. Leave me to myself.” When they pulled in that catch of fish, awe overwhelmed Simon and everyone with him. It was the same with James and John, Zebedee’s sons, coworkers with Simon.10-11 Jesus said to Simon, “There is nothing to fear. From now on you’ll be fishing for men and women.” They pulled their boats up on the beach, left them, nets and all, and followed him.
