Responding to God's word always produces positive results. We can even see results when we don't feel any enthusiasm for what God is saying. Peter and his crew were professional fishermen. It was their livelihood. They had been fishing all night long and caught nothing. Yet Peter put his nets down one more time simply in obedience to Jesus. That one cast of his net brought in so many fish that it filled both boats of his fishing operation to the point of sinking. That one cast of his net purely in obedience to the word of the Lord also changed the entire course of Peter's life. What is God speaking to you today? Will you step out and do what He is saying? Don't be surprised if you see very different results from responding that word of God even if you've done that same exact thing many times before on your own.
Simon answered Him, “Master, we have worked all night and have caught nothing. But at Your word I will let down the net.”— Luke 5:5 (MEV)
