Did you come up empty?

There are times you give life everything you have and still come up with nothing. I am talking about doing your best, yet you are not rewarded. Going out of your way to make it happen and nothing happens. Dotting every “I” and crossing every “T”, yet you don’t make the sense everyone else seems to make with ease. Working hard and not getting the promotion, the recognition or the results. This is coming up empty in spite of your best. Failure is not final. Delay is not denial. Peter the Apostle came up empty with his fishing. He was an experienced fisher man, had all the gear and gave the enterprise his absolute best, yet came up empty. That emptiness shapes you, molds you and makes you a mighty man. God is working through your situation to direct and take you to great dimensions of grace and blessing. Out of the emptiest situations of life, God will give you the best moments imaginable. So don’t give up because you came up empty. Hold onto your faith and wait on God.

And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.”

Dear God, I dedicate every area of my life where I have come up empty. I refuse to resign and give up on your promises. I declare that out of the nothing in my life you bring something beautiful in your sight. I declare by faith that you do a glorious work or grace in me in Jesus’ name. Amen
