TOPIC: Don’t Wash Your Net Yet

OPENING PRAYER: Father, help me to trust in You more than ever before.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Leader should remind members of what victorious Christian life is, the virtues of a victorious Christian life and who is qualified for it.

MEMORY VERSE: “For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.” – Job 14:7 (KJV)

BIBLE TEXT: Luke 5:2-4 (KJV)

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.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: “And Simon answering said unto him, Master we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing” (Luke 5:5). This statement unraveled pains and fruitless effort being suffered by Peter and his team after night of believing God for breakthrough. Many are facing enduring situations like abandonment., depression, defeat, agony and they are planning to quit, but they should know that there is hope for them because there is light at the end of the tunnel always. Luke 5:6.


LESSON AIM: To make believers understand that no matter what they are going through, they should remain relentless.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:

  • develop their faith in God that with Him, issues can be divinely resolved.
  • encourage themselves no matter the present situation they are going through for God has power to change ugly to beauty.

TEXT REVIEW: Luke 5:2-4

  • Failure may surface on your path to greatness but it can be addressed.
  • Giving your possession to God for use can be defining factor to ending your ceaseless challenges.
  • No matter the height of your problem, there is God that can end it Luke 1:37

TEACHING METHOD: Use discussion method.

TIME MANAGEMENT: Share the teaching time using the suggested time schedule.


…but David encouraged himself in the Lord -I Samuel 30:6. To be encouraged means having more confidence or hope in something or someone. As a believer, no matter the storm you are going through, be encouraged because;

  • God is standing by you – Hebrews 13:5.
  • Weeping will soon end for a glorious morning – Psalms 30:5.
  • God’s thought for you is glorious, flawless – Jeremiah 29: 1 1.
  • Great future awaits you – Job 8:7.
  • The storm will soon be over – Mark 4:37-39.
  • God knows all happenings – Isaiah 46:10.
  • Other saints of old prevailed over challenges – Acts 16:25-26, 12:6-11.


To every individual, there is always a time of travailing and a time of prevailing. When you succumb to the devil’s instruction, you travail into destruction but when you yield to divine instruction, you prevail into life of resourcefulness.

Giving up means;

  • Losing hope in God and divine intervention yielding to carnal understanding – II Samuel 13:2-6.
  • Surrendering your all to defeat – Numbers 14:30-33.
  • Very desperate to give in to any solution even if it is ungodly – Gen. 16:1-4.


  • Sarah – Genesis l16:1-4.
  • Elijah – I Kings 19;4.
  • Naomi – Ruth 1:8-11;3:13-16.
  • Peter – Luke 5:2.
  • Zechariah – Luke 1:1-18.

ACTIVITY: Discuss reasons why believers are giving up?

SUMMARY: Believers should remain relentless, ruthless in their pursuit and never quit their dreams and aspirations.

CONCLUSION: “For His anger endureth but a moment in His favour is life, weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalms 30:5


  1. Father, by Your grace, help all Christians never to give up in any challenge.
  2. Father, let our morning of joy come in Jesus name.
  3. Father, in Your mercy, deliver any of our loved ones in depression.
  4. Father, please continue to encourage Daddy and Mummy G.O. each day.
  5. Father, help me to daily encourage myself in You in Jesus name.

ASSIGNMENT: What can you do in times of challenges in order not to lose hope?


MONDAY: Maybe God is saying, launch out into the deep so don’t hesitate.

TUESDAY: With God all things are possible – Luke 1:37.

WEDNESDAY: Remember ye not the former things – Isaiah 43:18-19.

THURSDAY: Thou has ascended on high, has led captivity captive – Psalm 68:18.

FRIDAY: Encourage someone today whom you know is discouraged.

SATURDAY: Why not praise God rather than complaining – Psalms 67:5-6.

SUNDAY: God is greater than all powers militating against you. Psalm 95:3.
