It felt strange to be in church again after so many months of not going. During the sermon, the visiting preacher spoke on this verse:
5 Now it occurred that while the people pressed upon Jesus to hear the message of God, He was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret (Sea of Galilee).
2 And He saw two boats drawn up by the lake, but the fishermen had gone down from them and were washing their nets.
3 And getting into one of the boats, [the one] that belonged to Simon (Peter), He requested him to draw away a little from the shore. Then He sat down and continued to teach the crowd [of people] from the boat.
4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon (Peter), Put out into the deep [water], and lower your nets for a haul.
5 And Simon (Peter) answered, Master, we toiled all night [exhaustingly] and caught nothing [in our nets]. But on the ground of Your word, I will lower the nets [again].
6 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish; and as their nets were at the point of breaking,
7 They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and take hold with them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
I knew the reason Holy Spirit wanted me to go to church that particular Sunday. God was asking me to trust Him again for our healing. I believe this (along with this promise), is a promise that He has given me for my family. It is a personal promise for me to hold onto. I believe that Holy Spirit wants me to believe for my healing even though I have worked for years exhaustingly with doctors, nautropaths, diet changes, medication supplements, laying on of hands by other Believers, prayer etc towards my healing. And I, like Peter, feel like I have tried everything and nothing has worked, but if He says so, I will continue to listen for Holy Spirit's direction and believe for my healing.
