It Many Be Time To Change Your Location

When Jesus got into Simon's empty boat and asked him to go out into deep water to put down his nets, his partner's boat remained on shore. When Simon's boat took on a miraculous haul of fish his nets began to tear from the weight of the catch. Simon shouted for his friends to come and join him to help haul in his overloaded nets. The text in Luke 5 says, "Soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking."

This is the nature of revival. Some will stay on shore and form their life and theology around an empty shoreline experience. Others will cast off in faith and sail out to a place where God is filling empty boats to overflowing.

Whenever you hear God is moving in a different location you have a choice to make. You can remain on shore or you can cast off and sail out toward His manifest presence. Remaining on shore will always leave you with the regret that you did not follow the invitation to come and take part in something supernatural God was doing away from the predictable shoreline of your current reality.
