DAY 99 OF 365 IN 2021
John 21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
How much capacity do I you have? This is the preamble and forethought I want you to have in mind even as you read on.
Many equipments are designed with restrictions: maximum filling volume or maximum weight allowed. These are limits are placed by manufacturers and are intended for very explicit safety reasons. If breached, could they often result in serious negative implications. Therefore, one has no choice then but to adhere to these limits absolutely.
While reading today’s text, my mind was turned to capacity because of the fish and net. In normal terms, the expectation was for the net to break in view of the significant catch, but as we read ‘it held firm’. Thus I wondered, ‘what is our capacity as humans?’
Like the net let down for a catch, it does appear we can hold in a lot more than we perceive ourselves as able to. If in doubt, cast your mind to the even more inconceivable thought that the God, whom the heavens cannot contain and has the earth as His footstool, has made a home in us. Think about this:
our vessels of clay, can contain God’.
So if your worry is ever about your potential and capacity, that is your answer.
