Morning Meditation – A Moment of Clarity

“And Simon answered, ‘Master, we toiled all night and took nothing!  But at your word I will let down the nets.’” (Luke 5:5, ESV)

A word of authority always precedes great outcomes.  They come to us, guiding us into greater expressions of the life we’ve been given.  Call it inspiration, or a moment of clarity, but Jesus regularly and faithfully brings us to life-changing decisions that will open us to new dimensions of living.

Without inspiration, we are lost; we are without a compass.  We need something greater than ourselves to call us higher and into places where we’ve not dared journey before.

Perhaps, you’re in such a moment.  You need a Word—you need to know what to do next.  There’s something in you hungry for the next place of assignment.  Know this, then, that your desire will be satisfied.  Jesus knows you’re end from the beginning and will not leave you stranded in a desert.

Understand, though, Jesus will only give you what is necessary at the current crossroads.  Remember, it took Peter several years and many clarifying moments to move from fishing to being an Apostle.  Jesus’ Spirit will never magically transport you to the end of the story; He develops us through a life-long process of discovery.

Remember, God is for you.  Believe it.  Pray…seek…knock…and as Jesus promised, you will find a new harvest.

    Thanks Jim, I am having to make decisions right now that are very challenging, I know God will always be there all we have to do is seek him, being 70 you think that you should know all your challenges but I have to be honest with myself and realize I still cant do them alone and that everyday I need to seek God. I don’t always ask like I should and I try and fight the battle but I know that isn’t possible, I am going through some depression and I thought I had the Battle won but I don’t, these devotions inspire me to never give up. Thanks
