At Your Word

When Jesus called His disciples, it was interesting to see the interaction between Him and the disciples. Simon Peter was fishing with James and John. They fished all night and yet the Bible says that the “took nothing.” Nothing came from their fishing, despite them being experienced fisherman and diligently attempting to catch fish.

Jesus comes along and enters their boat and they go out a little from shore. He began teaching from their boat. Then Jesus tells them to let down their nets. They had a night full of no fish, yet we read that they say, “But at Your word I will let down the nets.” They obeyed Jesus and they hauled in so many fish that the net began to tear.

Imagine if you responded to Jesus with “at Your Word.” Imagine if every time the Spirit brought to memory the Word of God, you would say, “at Your Word.” Just imagine.

“And Simon answered, ‘Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at Your word I will let down the nets.’” – Luke 5:5 [ESV]
