Luke 5:5-7
Simon said, “Master, we’ve been fishing hard all night and haven’t caught even a minnow. But if you say so, I’ll let out the nets.” It was no sooner said than done—a huge haul of fish, straining the nets past capacity. They waved to their partners in the other boat to come help them. They filled both boats, nearly swamping them with the catch.

The Word of God has a lot to say about who we associate ourselves with.
1 Corinthians 15:33- Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals."
Proverbs 27:17- Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.
Proverbs 12:26- The righteous is a guide to his neighbor, But the way of the wicked leads them astray.
Provers 13:20-  He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.

In Luke 5 Jesus tells Peter to let down his net.  He had been fishing all night and caught nothing, but he listened nonetheless.  Soon after Peter let down his net, he caught so much that he couldn't even contain them all!  He then waved his hands to the other boat to get help, soon, not only one, but two boats were filled with fish!
You see, the men that were with Peter were blessed with Peter's blessing!
Who are YOU hanging out with!?  If you're hanging out with children of God- the children who are believing and living under the BLESSING, you're bound to get blessed!
Take a look at the people you are spending your time with, are they living under the blessing?  Are they living as the righteous children of God that they are called to be?  If not, ask the Holy Spirit to lead you and to bring those God-fearing, blessing bearing, children of God into your life.
