Pastor's Devotional...
February 7, 2019

What a comeback; from catching nothing during the night time, prime fishing hours to almost sinking the boat with a catch from a few minutes of effort in an off peak morning session (Luke 5:1-11) . The difference, of course, was drawing Jesus into the equation.
                Looking for a comeback in your work career? Try asking Jesus into your boat! One of our great mistakes is limiting Him to the “spiritual” side of life! Hey, He was a carpenter, a working man, most of His adult life. He grew up in a culture where the religious elite Pharisees (Paul had been one, simultaneously working as a tentmaker) also held “secular” jobs. Paul exhorts doing our jobs “unto the Lord”, insisting we are answerable to Him as well as our more immediate bosses. 
                How do we hear Jesus’ guidance in the “boat”?
  1. Prayerfully ask in very specific terms. Expect, anticipate, look for it.
  2. Know it will always be consistent with Scripture.
  3. Realize it often comes through the input of respected believers, through “coincidences”, good and bad developments, doors opening/closing.
  4. It often involves an element of risk. (He instructed them to push out into deep water.)
Prayer: I don’t like the deep water Lord but if You’ll go with me, I’m ready to hear and heed! In Your Name, Amen.
