Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. Luke 5:4 (KJV)

God’s intention for you is that you will make appreciable progress and enter into a higher dimension of His plan and purpose for your life. The days of barely making it and scratching the surface are over. However, to succeed, I need to draw your attention to a very important principle which is never to give up. Many believers give in too easily and throw in the towel too quickly. They prefer to maintain the status quo rather than fight and take what rightfully belongs to them.

We were told in the scriptures that Peter was a professional fisherman.

He knew the rudiments of fishing, he knew when to fish and when not to, yet he toiled all night without catching anything. He decided to do what we often times like to do he chose to wash his net and call it quits. In other words, it is not working. Just then Jesus walked in and approached him to use his boat. I am sure he just sat there worn out, waiting for Jesus to finish with the boat so that he could go home, but rather than get his boat back, the next thing he heard was a command to throw his net into the deep for a drought. Put on your imagination and think how Peter would have reacted. Don’t forget that Peter was a professional. Rather than argue, he simply obeyed and that was the beginning of a net breaking and boat sinking miracle for him. The man succeeded where he previously failed.

Beloved, it is possible you have failed in a particular area before, but I come today to encourage you not to be intimidated. I challenge you to go again to that same project or business where you failed; go again to that same office where you were denied and you will succeed. You will testify in Jesus name.
