YOUR LEAP STYLE IS FISHERMAN!
Have you ever heard of a Trust fall? It’s when you are willing to take a risk because you know that there is support behind you that will not let you get injured or hurt. Knowing your leaping style helps you to trust fall in obedience to God. Now let’s learn more about your leaping style.
WHAT IS A FISHERMAN?
The FISHERMAN has a personality of pursuit and heart of obedience often under the guise of a calculated risk taker.
As a FISHERMAN you may feel called to leave what is familiar, such as a career or job, and dedicate to a new riskier adventure. Being completely led by God makes the risk worth the reward.
This leap comes from the biblical story of Peter, Andrew, James, and John, Jesus’ Disciples. These men, as you may know, were fishermen by trade. However, one day, Jesus called out to them to become one of His disciples and “Fish for Men.” He invites them to take a Leap into an unfamilar and unpopular industry, the salvation of souls. We learn a lot about the disciples as we read through the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) but the common theme is that they were real people who took a huge leap lead by God.
We can learn so much from the disciples obedience, willingness, and fortitude as leapers.
As a Fisherman, you may find yourself in situations where you need to complete walk away from your career in order to walk into the assignment God has given you. Whatever it may be, your willingness to do so is because you have a heart that wants to obey God, no matter the cost.
It can be difficult at times, especially when there are uncertainties along the way, however, that is why you must study and understand the strategy God gave the disciples so that you can properly prepare, plan, and execute your leap each time.
“As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them.”
