Trust in the Fisher of all fishers!

"Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass." ~Psalm 37:5, nkjv


What has God called you to do?


Have you asked Him to use you today? He will!


Is your understanding of His fishing plan for you not yet very clear, even though many things in the Bible are like real lucent regarding God's will?


Our grasp of God's purpose for each of us can be limited and that is why we are motivated to earnestly seek the Lord daily. We see through a glass dimly at times because we are still in these human bodies.


The Word of God calls each of us to trust our loving heavenly Father and expect Him to show us the details that we need to have as we go fishing for people! He always knows what is best for each person!


Even when the Lord is silent and much of His purpose for us seems to remain like a dark mystery, the Bible teaches us to continue walking by faith trusting in our Father to guide us.


"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go." ~Psalm 32:8


"All the way my Savior leads me—what have I to ask beside?

Can I doubt His tender mercy, who through life has been my Guide?" ~Crosby


Listen, as we prioritize the Lord and His Kingdom first each day ..ahead of all worldly actives and things.. then we see how faithful God really is to give us the answers and care that we desire of Him.


"For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all…" ~Galatians 6:8-10a


God is waiting in the silence for a heart that He can fill;

He must find it cleansed and empty, with a spirit calm and still. ~Smith


"I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!" ~Psalm 27:13


What has been on your heart today?


What have you been waiting for?


Are you praying for a lost love one to choose Christ? Are you needing to receive a healing on some level? Are you praying for protection as you travel each week, or for finances to come in so you can pay some bills, or for a career so you can just support your family? Are you hoping and trusting for full reconciliation in a fractured relationship? God can do anything when people are willing.   


Pray, listen, and wait upon the Lord. Real good idea!


Pray, listen, pray some more, put God's Word into practice.. listen, pray, don't get spooky-weird, be balanced in Him, be polite and respectful of all you meet... and PLEASE DON'T run on ahead of Jesus to take matters into your own hands!


God doesn't need your help, honest. Remember Hagar and her child? Works of the flesh are wasted works! You don't need all the trouble that they can bring into your life.


"As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him." ~Psalm 18:30


"Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God." ~Psalm 20:7


"Keep my soul, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You." ~Psalm 25:20


Every single day gives us believers multiple reasons to stay dependant upon the Holy Spirit. Almost daily ..or sometimes every single day when we get around other people.. do we discover fun opportunities to joyously share our faith in Jesus with others who need Him. Trust and obey that's the very best way.. even if it ain't always so comfortable for us (bad English, but true), or God's answer doesn't arrive on our timetable. Have you ever trusted Jesus before? You can start right now!
