Jesus takes His disciples out on the lake, and when they don’t meet with immediate success, He presses them on further. His followers have to rely on the power of God as they put out into the deep.

The challenge of being a Christian is that we are stretched. Am I ready to rely on God to achieve more than I ever can on my own? Putting out into the deep is an act of faith.

O holy Spirit, grant me the courage to accept God’s invitation today. May I be willing to be stretched to change and to grow. May my yes be genuine.
