Unremitting Joy – 32

Just after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach; but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.  Jesus said to them, ‘Children, you have no fish, have you?’ They answered him, ‘No.’  He said to them, ‘Cast the net to 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 there were so many fish.

John 21:4-6

33 Full of Fish

A stranger on a beach telling seasoned fishermen how to fish, who would have blamed them if they had ignored the advice and instead just packed up and called it an unsuccessful night like other ones they had previously known.

Jesus didn’t catch the fish, Jesus told them where to cast their nets, they knew how to fish what they needed was Jesus’ guidance as to how to best use the talent they had as fishermen.

We all have abilities and those abilities are used to best effect when we allow God to guide us.
