“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….” Luke 5:1-2
Notice that the people were “pressing upon Jesus to hear the word of God.” Whenever we take a step toward the Lord, He will respond and begin to draw us closer to Himself.
There will always be “two ships” (two possibilities) in our spiritual life experience. These are placed in our path by the Lord to cause us to make a choice. Jesus will never enter the ship that relates to our self-life (our being in control of all that we say and do). When we make the right choice, Jesus will enter the ship that relates to His will and purpose for us, and become active in our spiritual life experience.
“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.” Luke 5:3
