The story is told in Luke 5:1-7 of how Jesus was able to change the situation in some fishermen’s lives by His Word and by their willingness to obey His Word. Although they had toiled all night and caught nothing, Simon’s response to Jesus was, “Nevertheless, at Your Word I will let down my net.”
The miracle that followed Simon’s “nevertheless” was life-changing, as the Bible tells us they caught so much fish that their nets began to break and their boats began to sink. That’s the kind of God we serve. He’s a God who wants to do net-breaking, boat-sinking wonders in your life. But, in order for that to happen, you have to be willing to obey God by launching out into the deep – making that sacrifice to surrender everything to Him, even when it feels uncomfortable and downright scary. Then maintain a “nevertheless” in your spirit just as Christ did in the Garden of Gethsemane when He prayed, “Nevertheless, not My will but Thine be done.”
May this Midnight Cry prayer call encourage your heart and challenge you to go ALL IN with God!
