God Wants to Amaze You

How do you respond when you get a tremendous blessing?  We all want to be blessed.  Do you accept with gratitude? Do you let the blessing absorb you?

In the gospels, at Jesus' direction Peter let down his net in the water, and the blessing was so huge that the abundance of fish tore holes in Peter's net.  His boat was dangerously close to capsizing. 

In Luke 5:8, it reads, When Simon Peter saw that, he fell down at Jesus' feet, saying, "Go away from me Lord, for I am a sinful man!"Peter saw beyond the blessing.  Peter saw Jesus and recognized his own limitations and his need for the Savior.

Jesus amazed Peter with the overload of fish because He wanted Peter to follow Him and get to know Him better.  God wants to amaze you so that you can better understand who He is and love Him even more.
