SPRING FORTH NOW
One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.
Luke 5:1-11 (NIV)
One of the amazing things about God in His creation of us is that He has already provided everything we need if we are willing to go; seeking to live in His designed purpose and plan for our lives. Relationship with the Creator God and the space in which we exist is foundational to being sensitive to God’s purpose and plan. God when He created everything, He created everything with everything in mind, thus whether we know it or not it is all connected. Fisherman understand that as they take fibrous materials, connective tissue, to create a tool to assist in fishing, that it is symbolic of how God uses each and every one of our experiences for us to cast a net into life and bring in our harvest. The more willing we are to launch out into the deep, intentionally and deeply to Breathe: New Life, the greater the opportunity for us to bring in a haul all because we understand how connected our experiences are to our reality and our destiny. Cast your nets, your experiences into the deep of your life and its challenges and pull in your abundance, everything about you and your space is at your disposal, Reconnect the dots of God’s purpose and plan for your life and live in the fullness of His promises.
