The Second Miraculous Catch of Fish

John 21:6-11

The net was not torn.

That many fish should’ve torn that net.

Do what Jesus says, the way He says to do it, in His strength and not yours, and you will have the abundance and capacity to do whatever He asks you to do.

Being filled with Him will make burnout impossible.

People burn out on their own energy, never God’s infinite supply.

Proverbs 30:5-6

Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection. Do not add to his words, or he may rebuke you and expose you as a liar.

The true seeker of God needs very little.

God’s grace is sufficient, His word enough.

The more you feel you need may very well be evidence that it is “more” than God that you are seeking.

How can there be more than God when He is everything?

It can only be in our ignorance and twisted conviction that we need something else or, just as ridiculous, God and…

Has God given us enough in order to know Him sufficiently? Do you trust this to be true? Or is He some sort of cosmic mind-messing game-player who provides insufficiently while commanding us to find Him, even though we’ve not been given enough data to really even start looking?


I believe He asks for our trust in Him and in His providence for all we need, whether it be food, clothing, and shelter, or whether it be enough evidence to know Him as He would desire to be known.

Once we realize we have all we need from God (enough), we move from a sense of ignorance to a sense of mystery. From “I know not” to “I know not, but it is known.” Yes, God is incomprehensible, yet has He not provided enough for us to know Him as He would have Himself be known by His created image-bearers?

Do you trust in Divine Providence? That God has given us enough?

Or do you need more? And if more, what would be enough?
