Finding Unexpected Success
Luke 5:4-6 – (4) Jesus told Simon Peter, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” (5) Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and have caught NOTHING… [Failure]
…But because you say so, I will” (6) …When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. [Success]
1. God can overcome the failure in our lives and get our attention.
2. God can give you success right in the place of your failure.
Luke 5:4-5 – (4) …let down the nets for a catch.” (5) Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and have caught NOTHING… [Failure]
3. God can give you such abundance, you can’t keep it all to yourself.
Luke 5:6-7 – (6) They caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. (7) So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
God Will Turn What Seems Like Failure to Success
Sir Winston Churchill:
“The pessimist sees the problems in every opportunity.
Whereas the optimist sees the opportunity in every problem.”
Your Harvest Will Come if You Keep Sowing Seed!!!

Get Back Up and Try Again

Expect God and Ask God to Take Your Failure and Redeem It.
