Daily Fountain 2017 - He Is In Control






Monday April 24

Bible Reading:     John 21: 1 - 14

Topic:         He Is In Control

Jesus' two previous appearances to the Disciples to prove to them that He had indeed rises and to manifest His Power and Glory took place in Jerusalem.

In today's account, He met seven of them at the sea of Tiberias in Galilee.

They were there engaging in their secular occupation of fishing but not for men as He had earlier commissioned them.

As in the earlier experience (Lk. 5: 5) they toiled all night with nothing to show for it.

This time too, the miraculous catch of fish convinced them it was Jesus

Jesus also fed them with the fish He provided though He later invited them t bring some of theirs.

Do you know that Jesus is always in complete control of your affairs as He was for the Disciples, even when you can't see it?

He is there to remove your shame and frustration and provide for your needs as long as you put your trust in Him.

Leaders are also reminded not to take hasty decisions as Peter did because those they lead would almost follow them.

Resorting to past "occupation" or "life" is never the best option especially when you have left for good.

Always look unto Jesus to take you forward.

Prayer:

Lord, may Your Grace be continually sufficient for me, in Jesus Name, Amen

Memory Verse:   John 21: 12

"Jesus saith unto them "Come and dine" And none of the Disciples durst ask Him, Who art Thou? Knowing that it was the Lord"
