Day 5 – Luke Chapter 5 as God has revealed to me
When you obey and are in God’s will you will be blessed. We read this in verse 5, Simon had been fishing all night. Jesus speaks to him and says to try again. Due to Simon’s obedience he inclosed a great multitude of fish and the net even broke.
With this I think of the hymn which speaks to my heart – Trust and Obey by John H. Sammis
- When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
- Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
- Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
- But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
- Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
“Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.”
Will you trust and obey Lord Jesus today?
In Luke 5:31 and 32 Jesus came for the sinner to repent (change of one’s heart or ways). Once you repent and change, you become new and don’t keep on the old self and ways as read in vs 36:
And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.”
Do you find yourself not at peace? Perhaps you are still wearing old? Don’t you think it’s time to put on new and find the peace, joy and hope in Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
May you continue to prepare your hearts to knowing the truth about Jesus and lean not unto your own understanding but search the living word of God.
Thank you for reading day five of my journey through the book of Luke.
Come let us adore him.
