    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

  1. GOD CAN TURN YOUR FAILURE INTO SUCCESS

    ‘…Because you say so, I will...’
    LUKE 5:5 NIV

    ‘[Jesus] said to Simon: “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will…” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break’ (4-6 NIV).

    Notice two principles in this story:

    1) God will use failure to get your attention. Peter was tired, empty-handed and disappointed when Jesus spoke to him. And He will speak to you through a rocky marriage, a child you’re about to give up on, or a job that seems too hard. He doesn’t want you to run from your problems, He wants you to learn from them; to discover the difference He can make in your situation when you invite Him into it.

    2) God can take you back to the place of failure and give you success. We assume that because we weren’t successful at something, it wasn’t God’s will. But often the truth is that we failed because we relied on our own strength instead of His.

    When Jesus spoke, the fish responded. The Bible says: ‘…They caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signalled their partners in the other boat to come and help them and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.’ (vv.6-7 NIV). God is not limited by your circumstances, He’s only limited by your unbelief. When you obey Him, you’ll discover He has a level of abundance in mind that will exceed all your expectations.
