Jesus predicted the success of Four Disciples with fishing.
They netted such a huge number of fish that their nets began to tear.They left everything an followed him.But they could not understand Jesus ,and deny him.After Jesus`death at last they became true disciples.

Fishing him out of the pond of despair
He fels bogged down and lacking in belief all night fishing no catch. Simple words of encouragment firm try again and have faith. Invites himn to cast them into the deep try again another passage from OT comes to mind the one about as many arrows you throw that tells you how strong your faith determination is. Does that strike you in the same way too? SP feels humbled and overpowered admist his sinfulness and unworthiness amazed at what Jesus has made possible to happen. One firm hand and J picks him up gain calling him to his mission and again injecting new fervor in him.Same thing with the others equally amazed and filled with fervor for what they saw. Like with John a miracle cause he comes from his parents in whom God has made miracles. See and you believe. What happens in hin happens in you too.

The Calling of the First Disciples

Now it happened, while the multitude pressed on him and heard the word of God, that he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret. He saw two boats standing by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them, and were washing their nets. He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch."
Simon answered him, "Master, we worked all night, and took nothing; but at your word I will let down the net." When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish, and their net was breaking. They beckoned to their partners in the other boat, that they should come and help them. They came, and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. But Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, Lord." For he was amazed, and all who were with him, at the catch of fish which they had caught; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon.
Jesus said to Simon, "Don't be afraid. From now on you will be catching people alive."
When they had brought their boats to land, they left everything, and followed him.
