Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord.” So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea. But the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but about one hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish.
So when they got out on the land, they saw a charcoal fire already laid and fish placed on it, and bread. Jesus *said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have now caught.” Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn. John 21:7-11
One time my brothers and our friends, the Gomez’s went craw dad hunting. We caught just a little over 150 and cooked them that night. I wish I could remember the exact amount, because it was a record…for us! Jesus appeared to the disciples at the edge of the sea of Tiberias after Peter and the others had caught nothing. He called out to them to cast their net on the right side of the boat and they caught a ton of fish. Peter knew it was the Lord and in usual fashion, jumped into the water and swam ashore. Some moments are so memorable, you count the number of fish caught. It was a miracle worth remembering! Of course, the real miracle was Jesus resurrected.
Do I see the miracles God is doing each day in my life? Am I stopping to count the blessings in the details?
Lord, You are amazing! I wish I could hear Your voice perfectly. But, I am grateful You do speak to me… and sometimes I “get it”. You know all things, please help me in my work and ministry. Oh, I need You. Would you work upon the hearts and minds and bring a sense of peace and love where it is needed. Do, O Lord, what only You can do. Remind me and others, You are alive.
