Miraculous Catch Of Fish Peter and his friends were experienced fishermen; they knew what they were doing. They had fished all night without catching a single fish. So when Jesus told him to row to a deeper part of the lake and lower his net it took a lot of trust from Peter. The trust and faith he had for Jesus led him to obey and this is what we want our kiddos to learn. Trusting in the word of God leads to obedience.
