I Will Make You A Fisher Of Men

"I will make you a fisher of men"… that was what I heard one early morning as I was leaving the boat launch on the way to my favorite fishing spot. The words penetrated my soul and I’ve never forgotten them… but at the time I didn’t know Jesus, I didn’t know He was alive. All I knew was what was going on in my own little world, my own selfish, self-centered life that I led; doing what I wanted, when I wanted.
But looking back now, I see that God had a plan for my life, and even though at the time of Him speaking those words to me, I didn’t fully understand it, I know now that His plan was in place just the same.
And the same is true for you… no matter where you are, and no matter what you are doing; God has a plan for you. You may not be aware of it, you may not want it, but opening up to Him and what He wants, will be the best thing that you may ever do for your life and for the life of your family.
When you come to the end of yourself and ask Him for His plan and purpose for your life, He’ll pick you up, cleanse you, set you free, and put you on the narrow road of happiness, blessings, and fulfillment. He has plans for your future.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
