Luke 5:4 NKJV “When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”
Jesus asked Simon to launch out into the deep – that got my attention. I need you to understand today that the most precious things are found in the deep. The reason many people are searching and not getting anything meaningful is because they are looking in shallow places! If you want your situation to change significantly, then start fishing in the deep.
Look at Psalms 107:23-24. It says, “Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business on great waters, they see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.” His wonders where? In the deep!
Look again at Psalms 135:6; “Whatever the Lord pleases He does, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deep places.” Where does He do them? In all deep places!
Deuteronomy 33:13 ISV says, “About Joseph he said: “May the blessing of the LORD be on his land: dew from the choicest of the heavens, and from the depths beneath.” Aha! The best things come from above and from the deep!
You’ve got to move from the shallow places where you are right now if you want to achieve great success. People are comfortable in shallow places because there are little or no risks there; but you must be courageous! Embark on that journey, launch out into the deep, you will not drown, go deeper and deeper! I like what Psalms 95:4 says, “In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the heights of the hills are His also.” Meaning that God knows where your breakthroughs are, and He can lead you safely there. Today, ask God to guide you to all the deep places where you should be.
