And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 They immediately left their nets and followed Him. 21 Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.
This means that Jesus knew where He was going!
There are two things you can be extremely confident in: that Jesus will never lead you astray, and He knows what makes His Father happy.
So when He says FOLLOW ME, He is saying, “If you let me lead you, I will make you successful.”
Prov. 3:5-6, Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. 6 In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
I WILL MAKE YOU
I will make you – the word MAKE is a verb – action
Making isn’t creating – creating is instant, making takes time. Everyone likes the event of salvation, but few stay to the journey which is what MAKES you a great man and woman of God. If you are not going to participate with the journey, you will never be made.
Jesus wants to MOLD US, MAKE US, MATURE US, EMPOWER US, EQUIP US for success.
We MUST ALLOW Him to make us – but if we are having Him follow us instead of us following Him, then He cannot MAKE us anything!
Jer. 29:11, For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
