The provision of the great catch is one that will be embedded within my memory for as long as I live. It is a lesson that reminds me of what God was doing in my life early in my walk with him.

Jesus first reason was for self-evaluation. He wanted them to see if their natural abilities worked for them. He also wanted to see if they would recall and implement what he had been trying to teach them all along. To change an environment through a word of faith and make it suitable where as it may not have been. Jesus was always teaching the word and often demonstrated lessons. Jesus’ proclamation always was; I did not come to institute a religion but establish a Kingdom. He wanted to introduce them to the Kingdom and help them understand the principles of the Kingdom and how it operates.

Isn’t that just like God? He provided before, after, and then to the degree of overflow. The bible declares that he knows what we have need of before we ask and that he will supply all of our needs according to his riches in Glory. Jesus did not stop at provision here, he went further and continued in serving them with love. When they got back to shore Jesus invited them to come eat the breakfast he had already prepared there. They didn’t have to do anything but just fellowship, rest, receive, and eat what Jesus had already prepared. I hope you didn’t miss that, it was indeed symbolic. Therefore, I will repeat it. They didn’t have to do anything but just fellowship, rest, receive, and eat what Jesus had already prepared. All we need and will
