Is your best not good enough?
One of the worst feeling in the world is knowing you did your best and it still wasn’t good enough.
Have you ever felt that way? You really tried to do something good and failed. Or maybe somebody criticized your best efforts? Or possibly, in something that you are normally good at, you blew it? I think we’ve all felt that way. I’ve discovered a life principle.
Let Go and Let God.
Peter, one of Jesus’ followers, was a fisherman. It just wasn’t a hobby he did on the weekends, he was a professional fisherman. Yet, once he fished all night with his crew and caught nothing. But the very next morning, at the direction of Jesus, he hauled in a boat-load of fish. It was then that he realized that when your surrender all to Jesus, He will bless you with more than your expectations. Failure often leads to insight that results in greater impact.
This Sunday, April 19, I begin a new sermon series called Tips for a Follower from Luke 5. I have discovered some principles from the early followers of Jesus that will help us follow better. This Sunday I will share the tip that Peter learned in a boat: SURRENDER. In Luke 5:1-11 worst/best day of fishing for Peter will encourage you to “Let go of everything and follow Jesus“. If your best isn’t good enough, let Jesus do it through you. I hope you will join me on Facebook Live and YouTube Live.
Join me this Sunday @ 9:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m.
