Obedience

Among the beautiful stories in the New Testament is one which never fails to bring comfort and inspiration to the writer. We read that when Jesus bade the Galilean fishermen "launch out into the deep" and let down their nets, they said, "We have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing." Then quite suddenly everything changed. When they obediently let down their nets, "they inclosed a great multitude of fishes." Jesus knew that supply is always at hand. He knew that the law of abundance is the law of God. Jesus also knew that obedience is essential; and though these fishermen had toiled all night, instantly they obeyed their beloved Master.

Now, what exactly had taken place to make the change in their experience? The lake, boats, weather, and so forth, were just the same, but suddenly their thinking had undergone a change. They now cast their nets, expecting good, and their needs were met, thus proving the ever-operative law of God, good.
