Prepared in Advance

Jesus told Simon, “Don’t be afraid! From now on you will bring in people instead of fish.”

(Luke 5:10 CEV)

Simon was a fisherman for a long time, so when Jesus called him to be a fisher of men, it wasn’t a concept that he wasn’t familiar with. I’m not sure what God is calling you to do but I do know that whatever it is, it’s something that He has already prepared you for. We find this consistent pattern in the Bible. For instance, prior to leading the Israelites out of Egypt, Moses was a shepherd, an experience that taught him how to be a leader. Your life experiences are not a coincidence. God is preparing you for what He wants you to do.

God prepares us for the work ahead.
