"Jump Overboard"

"Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing." John 21:3

Yesterday we talked about getting weary while waiting on the promises of God to manifest in our lives. Sometimes that "weariness" will cause us to get tired, give up and return to our way and what is familiar to us. Peter was a fisherman before Jesus called him to follow Him. When it looked like the call and purpose that Jesus had for him was gone, he went back to what he knew-- fishing.

Maybe this is you this morning. You have given up and gone back to your old familiar way because you see no hope of any fulfillment of the plan and promises of God in your life? Have you turned from waiting on His will and gone back to your own plans?

If this is you this morning, God's plan and promises never change. His purpose for you doesn't change. His gifts and calling are without repentance. He saw Peter fishing and He went to him. God's plan was for Peter to catch men instead of fish. Even when we turn to doing our own plans, for whatever reason, the Lord has not changed His mind about our life-- He still has a plan, the same plan in mind. Don't think that just because you have gone back to "fishing" that it is too late. It isn't, because He doesn't change, and He doesn't change His mind about you. If you are hearing His voice calling to you from the "shore", listen and heed it and "jump overboard" (leave your plan) and "swim" to Him.

Have a great day. God's plan for you has not changed.
