Fill me up.

Luke 5:4-10
When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” 6 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. 7 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!”
9 For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken; 10 and so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.” 11 So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.
From the above scripture. I can relate with Simon Peter predicament ,trying to put his best foot forward ,yet there were no results, to show forth his hard work of toiling the whole night. They had all the required tools for fishing used in those days and for them to venture in that field; they already knew they would get something.
Yes, you’ve got the money, you’ve got the fame, you’ve got the power, you’ve got the spouse of your dreams, you’ve got your own kids  but deep within you, you are empty. You keep on trying to fish in a world that is devoid, in satisfying your inner man, with all manner of worldly pleasures but at the end of it all, you end up empty.

Please here me out!!!The worldly system is designed to make people think in a certain way, which makes people do things which offer temporal pleasures but they are not satisfying the inner man. God’s main intent of creating us, was to be whole and complete in Him and not in people or things.

The best thing that ever happened in Simon Peter’s life is, His divine encounter with Jesus and His obedience to do what Jesus instructed Him to do. His act of obedience, brought forth an abundance in a place where there was nothing.His act of obedience opened his eyes to see the impossible becoming the possible, his act of obedience qualified him to be a disciple of Jesus and his act of obedience opened up the heavens.
The only person who can offer you permanent satisfaction and long lasting solutions to your inner man, is none other but Jesus Christ. He alone has the power to change your barren situation into an overflow, He alone has the capacity to offer you peace, joy, happiness in the midst of challenges, He alone has the power to deliver you from any form of addiction or mess that you are in currently, He alone has the power to give your life a meaning and a purpose, just as He did for Simon Peter, James and John
I know there are thousands of blogs at a click of a button but my mission on this platform, is for people around the world to meet Jesus right here. Maybe you are reading this particular blog post and you are toiling day in day out, with emptiness and you desire total satisfaction. The only way I know that works, is through accepting Jesus Christ to be the center of your life. He alone has the ability to fill you up, until you over flow with His character, wisdom, peace, joy, love and happiness, in a world where there are only temporal solutions with disastrous results.
The only way you can fully be happy and enjoy your life, is in Christ Jesus and not in alcohol, hard drugs, sex, money or gambling.Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens.He never changes or casts a shifting shadow James 1:17
An encounter with Jesus, is all you need to start your journey towards living a meaningful yet victorious life. You cannot experience the fullness of God, if you have not accepted His Son Jesus Christ to be the pilot over your life. You can simply do that by clicking The Best Decision Ever

People, fame, power, money or success, will only influences you to a certain degree but only God has the capacity to satisfy you. God desires us to enjoy life in Him

Simon Peter’s Obedience to Jesus, was personal but the results from His obedience was not personal .There was such a great impact that influenced other people to believe and follow Christ. This also applies to you my beloved, your obedience to the call of God, will always be personal but the impact you will make by allowing God to work through you, will always affect other people positively..

There is no impossibility with God!!Don’t allow unbelief to creep in your heart, it only places a limit on God to perform greater works here on Earth, through you.
