And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word, I will let down the nets.”
Simon (Peter) was a seasoned fisherman. Like anyone who’s honed their craft, he certainly knew this was futile at this point. But because Jesus had instructed him to do so, he relented.
How many times has Jesus asked you to simply trust Him, and because you’d experienced a pattern of failure you gave up? Simon pulled up nets that were so full of fish they were nearly bursting! No matter what you’ve experienced, if Jesus asks you to continue throwing out your net, throw it! You just may pull back a miracle.
