There are times when all of our effort comes up lacking of the desired results. This can be extremely frustrating and distract us from our life in God.
It is in these times that we need to remember God’s goodness and turn to Him for direction. And then, when He gives us direction, our faithful response will reveal our heart of love for Him and be rewarded.
I have been guilty of focusing on the problem instead of turning to the One with the answer and only found myself disheartened. I’ve also found that prayer and obedience have produced an abundant life that didn’t seem possible. You can trust Him.
And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.”
