September 3rd: Listening to Jesus

I pray for obedience and trust.

Luke 5: 1 – 11

I wish I could be like Simon. I believe in evidence. I don’t know how I wasn’t a detective.
I read today’s Gospel passage over and over again. Each time I asked myself, would I have cast that net? The answer is always the same. I know I would have had a long argument with Jesus. I would have told him he was wasting my time.
I pray for obedience and trust. I listen to the word of God and I truly believe in the power of God. I must confess there have been times when I am absolutely sure I knew what God wanted of me but I questioned it and talked myself out of doing what I “knew” to be true.
I will try to remember this passage the next time I am tempted to argue with God.
