The Lord is With Us in Our Daily Living

Bible Verses

John 21:3 Simon Peter said to them, I am going fishing. They said to him, We also are coming with you. They went forth and got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing. (4) Now as soon as the morning broke, Jesus stood on the shore; however the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.

Words of Ministry

In 21:1-14 we see the Lord moving and living with the believers. He is not only with us when we meet; He is even with us in our daily walk. Wherever we go, He goes. Whatever we do, He is there with us. Whether we are right or wrong, the Lord is with us.
[Even though the Lord instructed the disciples to stay in Jerusalem,]
Peter, the leading brother, took the lead to backslide into the world, saying, "I am going fishing". Six of the other disciples said, "We also are coming with you." Not only did the six disciples follow Peter, but even the Lord Jesus followed him. The Lord did not say to Peter, "Peter, what are you doing? Are you backsliding from My call? Are you going back to the sea? I will never go with you. If you go there, you must go on your own." Some may say, "If I go to a movie theater, will the Lord Jesus go there with me?" Yes, He will go with you. He is not only with you in the meeting place but even in a movie theater. But He will not go with you to the theater to give you peace, but to trouble you, to stir you up, and to tell you to leave that place. Eventually you would have to say, "I must forget about this movie, for Jesus will not leave me alone." This is life in resurrection. In resurrection, the Lord Jesus moved to the sea with the disciples.
