Last week it was a new song. This week, it’s an old one. I was reminded of it through our Men of the Word study yesterday. The chapter we read referenced the story of Peter and his companions and their “go fish” challenge from the Lord. You can read about it in the first part of Luke 5. After Jesus had taught from Peter’s boat, He instructed him to head back out for another cast of his nets. Peter, weary from his all-night shift, replied, “We have toiled all the night and have taken nothing.” This is where the author of the book we are using as a study guide made this observation: “Anything that starts with ‘we’ always ends in ‘nothing’ when Christ is not in the boat.” To Peter’s credit, he went on to say, “Nevertheless, at Thy word….” And you know the rest of the story with its miraculous ending. Yes, the old hymn is true. “I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord / No tender voice like Thine can peace afford / I need Thee, O I need Thee / Every hour I need Thee / O bless me now my Savior / I come to Thee.” Too often we labor in our own strength, our own wisdom, our own time, or even our own will. We forget that no matter how long we have been fishing, we still need Him to catch anything. To accomplish anything of eternal value, we need the instruction and aid of the Eternal God. So today, lift your hands, lift your eyes, and lift your heart to your Heavenly Father in full dependence on Him. Then, keep fishing!
