The Right Side of The Ship

Posted on November 24, 2015 at 2:16 PM
In the twenty-first chapter of St. John, one of Jesus’ disciples whose name was Simon Peter, decided to go fishing. His fellow disciples said, “We will go with thee.” After toiling all night long, they caught nothing. Jesus called to them from the shore the next morning, “Have you any meat yet?” They answered, “No!” Jesus responded, “Cast the net on the right side of the ship.” 

They toiled all night and it profited nothing; but when Jesus showed up the next morning, everything changed.  Psalm 30:5b ...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

There are many who are toiling today through a dark season.  Doing the same old thing, the same old way – day in and day out.  Nothing seems to be working.  Jesus’ disciples were plagued by the same fate.  Jesus told them to cast their nets on the right side of the boat. When they did, they pulled in 153 fish.  It was supernatural that the net did not break from the heavy load. What happened? They received a fresh word from God.  Obedience to the fresh word resulted in a large fresh catch.

Is that you doing the same thing and expecting different results?  If so, ask the LORD for a revelation. The moment it comes, act upon it.  When Jesus gave his followers a fresh word, they immediately acted upon it.  They received illumination that not only changed the way they fished, it changed their lives. 

Listen for the instructions of Jesus in every endeavor so that you don’t spend your time casting effort to the wind.  All of the elements they needed were in place. The water was there. The fish were in the water. They had nets. They had a boat. What they didn’t have was a divine word causing a paradigm shift. When God gives you a fresh word, know that the elements are already in place and be prepared to have your life changed also. The word to them wasn’t just about fish. It was about their commission.  It was about catching souls for the Kingdom.

My question to you is: Have ye any fish yet?”  If not, do as Jesus instructed, “Cast the net on the right side of the ship.” The right side will always result in enormous blessings for the kingdom of God.

JOHN 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

JOHN 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, "My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work."

JOHN 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
(Scriptures from KJV)

Tune in for the directions of Jesus in each attempt with the goal that you don't invest your energy throwing exertion to the breeze. The entirety of the components they required was set up. The water was there. The fish were in the water. They had nets. They had a vessel. What they didn't have was a perfect word causing a change in perspective. At the point when God gives you a new word, realize that the components are as of now set up and be set up to have your life changed too. The word to them wasn't just about fish. It was about their bonus. It was tied in with getting spirits for the Kingdom.
