Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [5/9/19]

When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners.

Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.  Luke 5:8-11 (NIV)

Passage: Luke 5:1-11

Many miracles may go unnoticed or are not acknowledged for what they might actually be.  We tend to dismiss things that may be miracles.   It seems we would rather come up with some rational reason why something has happened than we would choose to believe that we have just witnessed a miracle.  Couldn’t we just as easily believe, instead of doubt or dismiss?  Why do we do that?  Is it about needing to have all the answers?  Is it about being able to control everything?

It can be overwhelming when we begin seeing the miracles that the Lord is doing in our lives or those around us.  Instead, why not embrace them.  Praise the Lord for them.  Fear not.  Step out in faith and follow the one who has called you out and shown you so much favor.
