Nevertheless . . .

Luke 5:4-9

This was Peter’s response in Luke 5 to the Lord’s direction to launch out and let down your nets for a draught. How often do we, like Peter, use God’s Word or His leading as a “last resort”? Peter stated, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless. . . Peter’s emphasis seemed to have been on what they had done – we have toiled all night. Humanly, they had done all they could do, but look at the result when they resigned to Divine intervention! They had such success that they had to call for help. They had such a catch that their nets break, and their ships began to sink. Then we see the real character of Peter. He was so convicted by his unbelief that he fell at Jesus’ knee and repented of his sin. We have all been like Peter at times – nevertheless, Lord, and then were astonished at His abundant blessings. So let’s also be like Peter and repent of our lack of faith and disbelief.
