1 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,
2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

A mother is a vessel that brings forth new life. When a woman gives birth to a child, she becomes a mother. Similarly, miracles have a mother, and the mother of miracles is Mrs. Obedience. In today’s memory verse, we are introduced to the mother that gave birth to Christ’s first miracle: obedience to simple instructions. Obedience to simple instructions like “Only believe” can birth the healing miracle you have been expecting from God over the years, just as it happened to the ruler of the synagogue in Mark 5:36. The prophet Elisha also told Naaman to go and wash himself in River Jordan seven times for his leprosy to disappear. He complied, and his leprosy became history (2nd Kings 5:10-14)
In the story of Peter’s big catch at the Lake of Gennesaret, we have another good example of the obedience giving birth to a miracle. This miracle was conceived the moment Jesus commanded Peter to push his boat out a little from land so that He could preach from it, and Peter obeyed. Thereafter, it seems that Jesus told Peter to wait with Him in the boat until He finished preaching, to which Peter might have responded “Yes Sir”. Luke 5:4 captures what happens next:
“Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Lunch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.”

The instruction from the Lord which gave birth to Peter’s miracle catch was a three-in-one command: launch out into the deep (not the periphery of the lake), throw in your nets (for what?), and begin to draw the nets back, and they will be full of fish. This was all too much for an experienced fisherman like Peter to comprehend with his natural mind. Almost aborting the pregnancy of his miracle, he said to Jesus in Luke 5:5b,
“Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing:”
However, the story had a happy ending because he went ahead to
obey the divine instruction even though his professional mind could not
Beloved, if you urgently need a miracle, you need to have the mother that gives birth to it. Obedience to the word of God is the mother of miracles. Having faith in God and believing His word are two ingredients that produce obedience in a person. No wonder Jesus said to Martha in John 11:40:
“….Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?”
As you believe His word today, I decree, receive your miracle now
in Jesus’ Name.
