God Wants to Amaze You

God Wants to Amaze You

When Simon Peter saw that, he fell down at Jesus’ feet, saying, “Go away from me Lord, for I am a sinful man!” – Luke 5:8

We all want to be blessed. But how do you respond when you receive a tremendous blessing? Do you accept it with gratitude? Or do you let the blessing absorb you?

When Peter let down his net in the water at Jesus’ direction, the blessing was so huge that the abundance of fish tore holes in Peter’s net. His boat was dangerously close to capsizing.

Jesus amazed Peter with the abundance of fish because He wanted Peter to follow Him and get to know Him closely. God wants to amaze you so that you can better understand who He is and love Him even more.
