Summary: Have you ever given your best effort and it seems like NOTHING? No one sees? No one says THANK YOU? The fruit seems to "not remain?" Peter says: LORD WE HAVE FISHED ALL NIGHT, WE HAVE TAKEN NOTHING. Does your work seem like NOTHING? Why do we get frustrated?
NOTHING, MY HUMAN INTENTIONS, NOTHING

*FRUSTRATE, FRUSTRATION: to bring to nothing, disappointment, to make of none effect, to make void,
I AM SO TIRED OF NOTHING… I AM FRUSTRATED REALLY BAD.
NOT ONLY FISHING WHAT WE EAT… FISHING IS HOW I MAKE THE HOUSE PAYMENT AND BUY POTATOES TO FRY TO EAT WITH THE FISH. I FISHED ALL NIGHT: NOTHING! NOTHING, WE DID OUR BEST AND HAVE CAUGHT NOTHING…
John 21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
John 21:3 (MSG)
3 Simon Peter announced, "I'm going fishing." The rest of them replied, "We're going with you." They went out and got in the boat. They caught nothing that night.
FRUSTRATION: COULD THERE BE A WRONG SIDE AND A RIGHT SIDE…?
IT IS INSANE TO KEEP DOING WORK AND GETTING NOTHING? HOW INSANE TO KEEP GETTING NOTHING, NOTHING? THE SAME THING AND EXPECT A DIFFERENT OUT COME… IF WE CONTINUE THE SAME OLD SAME OLD?
John 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
John 21:6 (NLT)
6 Then he said, “Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you’ll get some!” So they did, and they couldn’t haul in the net because there were so many fish in it.
JESUS WAS LIKE FORD… HE HAD A BETTER IDEA!
RUN, RUN, RUN FOREST RUN. IT SEEMS TO BE AN INSTINCT TO WORRY, RUN….
I understand there were several angels assigned to watch over people on the earth. The angels got into a discussion about the people they were watching over. One angel enquired of another angel: WHAT IS YOUR HUMAN DOING? The angel was quick to reply: My human is running to and fro. My human stays in an uproar and worrying all the time. He is so busy all the time. The other angel doesn’t he realize that God is in control and we have been assigned to watch over him. The angel that was watching over his assigned woman, said my human runs around like a chicken with its head cut off. She stays FRUSTRATED and ANGER EVERY DAY. Why said the angel, Isn’t God caring for them? So one of the new angels said: WHAT IS YOUR HUMAN DOING? The angel thought awhile and said: NOTHING, SHE DOES NOTHING ALL DAY, BUT SHE RUNS ALL DAY. The other angel said: WELL, WHY IS SHE RUNNING SO FAST? WHERE IS SHE GOING? NOWHERE, SHE IS JUST RUNNING. Both angels seemed to agree their humans are GOING NO WHERE, THEY JUST GET UP IN THE MORNING AND RUN UNTIL BEDTIME. They don’t ever think about our Father and eternity. They don’t have time to read their Bibles, they forget to pray, they run at a fast pace. Seems humans have no sense of the Father and eternity. They just focus on RUNNING TO AND FRO… OH, THEY ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE, THEY ARE JUST GOING.
Because they are running they never smell the roses. They complain and griping. They run fast and murmur much. They must not know the FATHER DOES NOT LIKE THE HABIT OF MURMURING.
Did you hear about the lady that her grandfather and grandmother died of cancer? Her dad died of cancer? She told her mom, we are going to die of cancer. She studied the medical history of her family and they all died of cancer. She noted all the family ate peanut butter. She concluded PEANUT BUTTER causes cancer. She made her mother and her quit eating peanut butter. It is sad to tell you but her mother died 10 years later of cancer. Now the daughter worried and worried. She studied the SIGNAL SIGNS OF CANCER, she did not ever eat peanut butter. She would not allow it in their house. She read the articles and the books that had any cancer information. She became an expert on cancer. She worried every day. She worried, fretted, and knew she was going to die of cancer. Her blood pressure was high because she knew she was going to die from cancer. The lady died when she was 43, she had a massive heart attack from needless stress and worry.
WHY DO WE GET FRUSTRATED IN DAILY LIVING?
*1. We draw the conclusion that God doesn’t hear my prayers so we get frustrated? Heavens brass, earth iron.
Deuteronomy 28:23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.
