Luke 5:5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”
Lots of work and no results? It can be so frustrating when it feels like all your efforts are not producing anything – worked hard caught nothing. Sometimes we need to work smarter and not harder. Not by might, not by power but by My Spirit says the Lord. Efforts in your strength won’t achieve much but what is done in the power of the Spirit lasts for eternity. The most important key in this is ‘because you say so.’ Have you asked God if what you are doing is worthwhile? Sometimes your No list has to be as long as your Yes list. Let’s do what God calls us to do today and expect God results as a result of our obedience. One act of obedience can achieve more in a moment than many hours of hard work.
Prayer Today: That we would work smarter and not harder. That we would say no to unfruitful things in our lives. That we would obey the voice of God
