When Jesus Steps in!

Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We will go with you." They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. Just as day was breaking, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, "Children, do you have any fish?" They answered him, "No." He said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some." So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. ~ John 21:3-6
Beloved... You might be exhausted and frustrated from "fishing" yet the outcome of your toiling have only yield insufficiency, lack, debts, failures, burdens, barely enough... unfruitfulness, in fact, you have caught nothing! Leaving you disappointed, discouraged, depressed, dismayed... or even feel like dying. BUT God is right smack in the middle! When Jesus steps in, Miracles Happen! He is saying, "Children, do you have any fish [to eat along with your bread]?” .... "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some." ... "Come and have breakfast with me." Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and likewise the fish.
Beloved... Be encouraged! God has already provided! The disciplines were fishing all night and they caught nothing. But at Daybreak, when Jesus stepped in... He brought the bread and started the fire to prepare breakfast, with a few fish, from the multitude of fish they had caught. Faith says before we get there, Jesus is already there! Hallelujah! Victory belongs to Jesus! Jesus is Our Day-Breaker!
Let's pray: Heavenly Father, I pray that I will recognize Your Holy Spirit presence in my midst with His love, His faithfulness, His power, desire and delight to bless, help and strengthen me. Thank you, Jesus, I invite you in my life to save, redeem, and transform me. In faith, I praise Jesus for His divine intervention, miraculous deliverance, and supernatural provisions. LORD, you are here - moving in the midst, working in this place, mending broken hearts, restoring children and families, saving lost souls, healing sickness and diseases, setting captives free, granting second chances, meeting every need... God is turning our lives, households, business, and ministries around for His Glory. I decree and declare that because I am God's treasured possession and He loves me, my situation is beginning to turn around. There is a SHIFT of GRACE to move me to a new level of success; supernatural breakthroughs and overwhelming victory is mine, through Christ Jesus. God is moving me from barely making it to having exceedingly abundantly above and beyond... immeasurably more than I could ask or imagine. Sooner than expected, a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into my lap! I believe, I receive, and I praise God, in Jesus Mighty name, I pray, AMEN!
