Don’t Give Up
John 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
“An elderly lady was once asked by a young man who had grown weary in the fight, whether he ought to give up the struggle. “I am beaten every time,” he said dolefully. “I feel I must give up.” “Did you ever notice,” she replied, smiling into the troubled face before her, “that when the Lord told the discouraged fishermen to cast their nets again, it was right in the same old spot where they had been fishing all night and had caught nothing?””
This story makes me think how important it is to be fervent in our Christian lives. How many times have you started to think “what’s the use?” and start to give up on a prayer or situation, etc? The season for the movement if the Lord’s hand upon that prayer or person might begin tomorrow. Expect that it will be each day and one day, in His time, it will be!
