"Hauling in the Catch"
Pam Finlay
Watercolour on Paper
February 2016
God's catch is of hearts and souls.  The net is full of fish, a great spiritual harvest of God.   
There are seven people in the painting.  The number seven in scripture speaks of spiritual maturity.   There are fifteen fish in the net. One scripture that mentions both the numbers fifteen and seven is in Leviticus 23:34, entering into the Feast of Tabernacles.
34 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to The Lord (NKJV)  
The scriptures that follow mention about the Sabbath-rest, entering in to God's perfect rest.  The seventh year Sabbath and the Year of Jubilee is mentioned in Leviticus 25:1-55. Hebrews 4:9,10 also mentions about the Sabbath-rest.   We are currently in a year of Jubilee. 

Holy Spirit also took me to the following scriptures and I noticed how they speak of a new direction.   The first scripture I was given for this painting speaks of a new direction.  
Matthew 4:
18 And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called a Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.
19 Then He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men".
20 They immediately left their nets and followed Him.  
These two disciples were called to take a new direction, a new path for their lives (NKJV)
In Mark 3:7 Jesus went in a new direction too and a great multitude followed Him.  
7 And Jesus withdrew to the sea with His disciples; and a great multitude from Galilee followed; and also from Judea (NKJV) 

Follow Jesus in the direction He desires for you to go.  Rest in His glory.  Enjoy His heavenly rest.  He is the only way.

Blessings and love,
