Luke 5:1

"One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. He saw at the water's edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets." NIV

"And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, and saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets." KJV

Jesus had such a way about Him that crowds of people pressed in on Him to hear what He had to say. They had crowded Him right up to the water's edge. He did not get upset or anxious. He simply took note of what was available and made an effortless decision to get into the boat that was sitting there empty. Jesus showed us that if we are people of prayer and the Word of God, we will be able to make good decisions regardless of what's going on around us. We can be in the most tumultuous and stressful of times and still think on our feet.

Heavenly Father, we stand in need of Your wisdom to make decisions in difficult times. Help us to hunger for Your Word and for more prayer so that we will be ready to make tough decisions when things are chaotic all around us. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
