Because He Said So

Are you always open to God’s will in your life? I hope I am. I don’t want to be like Jonah, who finally obeyed but grudgingly. I don’t even want to be like Peter who said, “Because you say so, I will” (Luke 5:1-11). Peter had been fishing all night with Andrew, James and John, with no catch. He was exhausted and frustrated. Now, here was Jesus, telling him to take the nets they had just washed and go back out and drop them in again. Maybe he thought, what does a carpenter know about fishing anyway. But he is a rabbi, so to show respect and teach him a little about the fish business, I’ll do it. The Bible doesn’t say what Peter thought, but he did obey, reluctantly. It changed his life forever. Help us to obey you, Lord. I hope gladly, but even if grudgingly or reluctantly, help us to be trusting and open to your will in our lives.
