S. O. A. P
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, it is the Lord!
This is a statement made by St. John “The Beloved” concerning a fishing trip the Disciples took after the resurrection of Jesus. At the beginning of His ministry, the disciples had fished all night on one occasion and caught nothing. The next morning, after using their boat to teach from, Jesus told them to head to deep water … Peter argued until “The Catch” broke their nets. Then he repented. Now, after 3 1/2 years of miracles and a resurrection from the dead, Jesus said from the beach, after seeing that they had again caught nothing all night … “Hey fellas, throw your nets on the other side.” They did, THIS TIME without arguing. The CATCH was so large they couldn’t even haul the nets into the boat. John looked at Peter and said … “It’s Jesus!”
Now, think back to the 10 times. No, think back to the 50 times. No, think back to the COUNTLESS times when something unusual happened in your life, and you stopped and thought … “It’s Jesus!” It wasn’t a coincidence. It wasn’t the stars lining up in a perfect formation. It wasn’t “Your Turn.” No, it was Just JESUS. Most of the time, if you’re really honest about it … “He’s UNMISTAKABLE!”
I am more than happy; in fact I’m honored to acknowledge that every time I’ve been in a tight situation You have always made a way for me. I am here today because … “It Was Jesus!” Amen
