Organizing the Inside – Day 86 Cast Your Net On The Right Side

He called out, “Fellows, have you caught any fish?” “No,” they replied. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. ~John 21:5, 6

Are you casting your net on the right side?
The difference between success and failure could be in making an adjustment? Why is it that the disciples were out all night, working hard and caught no fish?  These were fishermen and they knew how to catch fish, their abundance was near, yet they needed to change what they were doing. Is the difference in abundance and lack in your life is only one specific word of direction? Do you need a word from the Lord?  Jesus gave the disciples a word of knowledge, which they immediately obeyed. They experienced abundance because they heard from the Lord and obeyed His specific instructions.

God wants you to succeed.
God wants His children to have everything they need. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:19   Christians often suffer lack because of a failure to listen (hear) and obey (receive) the specific Word of God. There are times when you simply need to make an adjustment. We sometime complicate our lives by casting the net on the wrong side of the boat. Although what you are doing is not working you keep doing it anyway. Abundance is found in following the specific will of God. It’s not enough to go where God wants you to go, if you are not doing the right thing once you get there. A huge part of doing God’s will includes doing it His way.

Did the disciples need to go back for more training on how to fish?
Did they need to seek a second opinion? The disciples were doing what they were supposed to do, but needed to do it differently. Immediately they obeyed and found abundance. If you are not getting results and suffering lack in your business, marriage, ministry or any area of your life, you may need to make a simple adjustment. Have faith, I believe the answer is near you and it’s in your heart. Ask God who gives generously to all who call on Him.  Also read Deuteronomy 30:11-14
