Facing Seasons of Uncertainties

Jesus said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some (fish).” When the disciples landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread. Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” (John 21:6; 9 and 12)

How will you face a new season of uncertainties? When I came to the U.S. from Korea, I experienced a major culture shock that caused fear and anxiety – new language, new foods, and new rules. Maybe for you, the uncertainties of where you will be next season, how your family will adjust, or even considering a career change may bring stress and fear.  

In John 21, we read of the disciples who were facing a season of change. By this point, Jesus had risen from the grave and had already appeared to the disciples. The disciples feared the authorities but were also overjoyed that Jesus had risen. They also knew that Jesus was going to send them out on a new season of ministry (Jn. 20:19-21).

So how did the disciples face their uncertainties? They trusted Jesus and followed him! We read that Peter and some of the disciples went fishing to make the best use of their time, but after a long night of fishing, they caught nothing. They were frustrated, cold, hungry, and tired. So Jesus guided them and gave them a fishing tip. When they listened, they caught a net full of large fish, 153 to be exact, John’s way of preserving eyewitness integrity.

Jesus then provided a fire to warm them from the cold, food for their hunger, and an unforgettable experience with their risen Lord to awaken their tired spirits. God’s guidance will always lead you where you will grow closer to him and his provision will be sufficient. May you trust in Jesus more deeply and follow him more closely in the coming season. When God guides, God provides.

Question: What am I anxious about in the coming season that I can commit to God?

Challenge: Turn to God daily in prayer and commit your worries to him.

Prayer: O Lord, draw near to us that our hearts will turn to you when we sense any anxiety or fear. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
