Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some (John 21:6).
A former client of mine was 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 could not understand why every year at a certain time in the winter sales plummeted. They could not understand why this trend took place. They studied their product line. Interviewed customers. They did everything possible to uncover the mystery. Finally, someone made a remarkable discovery that changed everything.
It seems that whenever it got really cold outside the manager raised the heat temperature in the store. When customers came into the store it became 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 less sales overall. They lowered the temperature of the stores and as a result the sales climbed back to the levels they were accustomed to. Their adjustment resulted in restoring sales levels.
Jesus stood on the shoreline and watched Peter and a few of the disciples fish. They had not caught anything. Jesus yelled from the shoreline asking if they had caught anything. He then suggested they cast their line on the other side of the boat. Without knowing who this person was addressing them, they took His advice. They began catching so many fish they could not 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 the full blessing of God. Ask Him today where you need to adjust to Him.
