Draught can be defined as the drawing in of a fishing net; the fish taken at one drawing; a catch. It can also be an act of moving a load by drawing or pulling. Great on the other hand can be defined as something that is unusually or comparatively large in size or dimension; large in number or numerous. Great draught, therefore, is the pulling in of a large catch.

It is very tasking to move load by pulling or drawing, especially if the load is great or large. Necessary preparation for such object moving is needful. It may be that one will need to train their muscles; acquire necessary skills or knowledge on moving and handling; purchase durable apparatus for such task; form partnership and cooperation with those who will be helpful; or obtain endurance training.

In Luke 5: 1-11, Peter experienced a great draught in his profession as a fisherman. Though he had toiled the night before and caught nothing; Jesus asked him to launch into the deep for a draught and he obeyed. What he caught was a huge load of fishes that was too much for him and his brother to draw.

Their net could not withstand the draught; their boat too small for the load; their muscle too weak to pull; their skill and knowledge inadequate. They could not endure the pressure anymore, they had to shout to nearby fishermen for help.

God says a great draught is coming our way this year. He is, therefore, giving us an alert to get prepared, increase our capacity, and obtain necessary skills and tools that will be helpful before the draught is at our doorstep. May God enables us in Jesus name. Amen!
