John 21:5-6 New International Version (NIV)

 5He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

   “No,” they answered.

 6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. 

How many times have you thrown your net in the wrong place… (made a bad decision)?  Looking back when you were not catching fish (… or life was not going well), did you try to reach out to Jesus?  Did you ask him what to do or did you muddle your way through thinking “I can do this.”? 

I love this passage because the disciples were in the completely wrong place, but once they took Jesus’ advice they had way too much fish.  So if you feel like you’ve gone down the wrong path…  Make sure and pray asking to be shown which way to go…  It’s so much easier than trying to do it yourself.  🙂
