Peter called Him Master, a term used only by disciples, or a near to be one. The word was equivalent to rabbi or teacher. And because the Master had asked, Peter went back into the deep water where he had spent the previous night drawing in empty nets. But this time their nets began to break and their boats began to sink from the weight of the catch! It was a miracle!
Has God ever asked you to go into a situation that was well over your head? He often calls his people into the deep waters to bring them into a position to hear his voice! Like Job, we will cover our mouth (Job 40:4). Like Isaiah, we will feel ruined and unclean (Is 6:5). Like Peter we will cry “depart from me,” for His Holy presence reveals the depth or our sin! (Lk 5:8)
It is in this holy, special revelation moment that God reveals our heart and heals our soul. If you ever find God leading you into deep waters, listen for His voice, drop your nets, and follow Him.
