There is always fish and bread

Posted by appolus on June 8, 2020

“As soon as they had come to land they saw a fire of coals there, and fish on it, and bread.” (John 21:9)

All night long the disciples had fished and had caught nothing, yet one word from the lord and the nets were full. Notice that when Peter jumped overboard and swam ashore, there was already fish cooking on a fire of coals and there was bread. So often in this world we strive, just like the disciples, for what we need but we do it without Jesus.

Remember when the disciples were rowing across the waters in the midst of a great storm and were getting nowhere? They were exhausted and probably frightened. Then Jesus comes walking on the water through the storm and enters their boat and suddenly they were at the other side. As soon as Jesus enter the situation all striving ceases. Have you found such rest in Jesus? Do you get caught up with this life and its constant demands? It’s exhausting isn’t it?

To be content with where you are right now is not to be passive at all. One can work as unto the Lord but still the focus being on Jesus. If I know that even if all my hard work does not produce the results I was looking for, that there is still fish cooking on a coal of fires and bread from heaven to eat then I am at peace.

And the irony is, when we are anxious for nothing, when we do not worry about the things that worry the people of the world, then so often there is a net of fish so full that it seems impossible that it would not break. In God there is peace, shall we not invite Him in to our boat today? Simplify your life today and simply follow His instructions. By doing this, by seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, by being content with a coal of fires with some fish and some bread, then the Lord can safely fill our nets. Be at peace in Him, let Jesus be the delight of your heart and all these things shall be added unto you.
