Praise the Lord for another day and another chance to move down the path toward the prize. I was sitting in my secret place thinking about the events to come in my life this week. As I looked at the calendar, I realized that I had to make some adjustments that were going to cause some monetary and mental pain in my life. This reminded me of a message I have shared with some of all of you in the past and the time is right to share it again. Stay blessed.

Today’s Prayer

Father, on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ everywhere I come before you to say thank you. You are there for us in every situation, all we have to do is open our spiritual eyes and see you. You are in the comfort and the pain. When we fall (And all of us do at one time or another) You are there to pick us up, no questions asked. Thank You for your loving kindness and we will be careful to give You all honor and glory, in the matchless name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Making Adjustments

…”Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” – John 21:6

A friend of mine is the marketing director of a large food brokerage company and told me a story about one of their client grocery stores located in the upper Midwest. It seems that the store couldn’t understand why at a certain time every winter sales plummeted. They studied their product line and interviewed customers. They did everything possible to uncover the mystery. Finally, someone made a remarkable discovery that changed everything.

It seemed that whenever it was really cold outside, the manager raised the temperature in the store. When customers came into the store it was too warm for them, so they removed their coats and placed them in their shopping carts. This meant less room for food and resulted in reduced sales overall. They lowered the temperature of the store, and as a result, the sales climbed back to the levels they were accustomed to. Their adjustment resulted in restoring sales levels.

The bible tells us in the 21st chapter of John that Jesus stood on the shoreline and watched Peter and a few of the disciples fish. Jesus yelled from the shoreline asking if they had caught anything. They had not. He then suggested they cast their line on the other side of the boat. Without knowing that it was Jesus who was speaking them, they took His advice. They began catching so many fish they couldn’t bring them in.

Adjusting our lives to God is the first thing that has to happen in order to begin experiencing Him in our daily lives. For some, it is simply following the advice of those above us. For others, it may require a major change in our job situation. Still, for others it could mean making changes in relationships. Whatever the case, you can be sure that until we adjust our lives to God, we will not receive His full blessing. Ask Him today where and what you need to adjust to Him.
