Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

Catch of the Day
By Jimmy Houston

I Peter 1:7

These troubles come to prove that your faith is pure.

Bass fishing, especially tournament fishing, is definitely a moving target. In order to really stay at the top of the game, you must fish every situation as it comes to you. We must actually fish the day, the hour, the moment, and even each cast according to a wide range of variables. To figure out these variables, we rely on our skills, abilities, and experiences.

Troubles, like changes in fishing, come along regularly. They come as a check on our faith. Is our faith strong enough to rely on God, or do we run from God? I have learned thatI must rely on God. The bigger the problem, the more I need God. After all these years my God has never failed me. Not even once.
