The Blessing is around the corner


I wanted to share this with you. It’s from a guy named Vance Letbetter and he sends these daily devotionals everyday. I think you should sign up for it here and get blessed like I am being blessed.

Today’s Scripture

Then he said, “Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat,
and you’ll get plenty of fish!” So they did, and they couldn’t draw in
the net because there were so many fish in it. John 21:6 NLT

Today’s Thought

This is another scripture that shows Jesus impacting the disciple’s
livelihood and well being. Shortly after the crucifixion, Jesus makes
several appearances to the disciples to prove that He had truly risen
from the grave and to give them hope. When Jesus first met the
disciples in Luke chapter 5 He gave them instruction after fishing all
night to go out again after catching nothing and fish deeper. When
they obeyed Him they caught so many fish that they decided to follow
Him and become disciples. They learned that day to listen to Jesus,
not to give up before the blessing and that Jesus is about abundance.
Now on this day three and a half years later Jesus continues to prove
that He is a faithful God of abundance and cares for all our needs.
Remember that just a few days prior to this day the disciples saw all
their dreams and hope seemingly die on the cross. Again they were
ready to give up. It is at that time that Jesus makes an appearance
and proves that He is who He says He is. Now once again the disciples
had been fishing all night and had nothing to show for it. No money to
pay the bills or feed the family. Jesus makes an appearance and
instructs them to fish on the other side of the boat. They obey not
knowing who He was! Perhaps the Holy Spirit on the inside told them to
trust and obey. When they raised the net it was so full again they
needed help getting it in. But it wasn’t until that moment when
their needs were met that they realized it had to be the Lord. Today
you need to know that Jesus cares about your needs and that He is a
God of abundance. He is ready to fill your nets ! Even if you have
been fishing all night and have come up empty handed you need to know
not to give up. Jesus is about to make an appearance. Like the
disciples they recognized that it was Jesus that helped them with
their financial needs, livelihood, peace and joy afterwards they
couldn’t wait to thank him and give Him praise.

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, I give you honor and glory for being a faithful and
abundant God. I ask that You show me how not to give up right before
the blessing. Lord Jesus I declare Your word over my life and help me
to totally trust in You in every area of my life today and always. In
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
