There were so many, yet was not the net broken

Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken (John 21:11 KJV)

After Jesus resurrected from the dead, He appeared to the disciples as they wrapped up an unsuccessful overnight fishing campaign. He told them to throw their net for a catch, and as soon as they did, they had 153 bulky fishes in the net! The scripture continues with an insightful phrase, “for all there were so man, yet was not the net broken.” 

When God provides or blesses, He also supplies the capacity to contain that blessing. He does not perform uncompleted miracles. His works are perfect. This is such an important concept to understand how the Lord operates. Often in our lives, only part of the miracle will manifest initially. For example, if God is the One who brought your husband to you and so ordained your marriage, you can be sure He will complete it with the gift of children as you desire. If God is the One who gave you that job, as you probably testified, then He will take care of that challenge you are facing at the place of work. Do not doubt God when things go wrong. Imagine Peter began complaining that the fishes were too many and his net was about to break!

He makes everything beautiful in its time!


I want you to remember a blessing in your life where you were sure God started it but began doubting when obstacles showed up. 


If God started a work in your life, He will complete it. He will not bless us with a blessing that will break our neck as we carry it. He will provide the capacity to contain it. When part of the miracle is not yet palpable, do not question whether God is still there. If He started it, He would finish it!


Thank the Father because He is not only the Author but the Finisher of every good thing in our lives.
