Fear Not - Original Artwork

Monday, December 11, 2017

One of the things I've been doing this year is painting in the prayer room as part of the KL House of Prayer (KLHOP). Through the 3 years or so I've been with these guys, this year the Lord really expanded our expressions of worship in the prayer room. One of that expansions included art.

During our last session this year before we took a break for the year end, I started on a painting after the Lord showed me Exodus 14:14.

"The Lord will fight for you. You need only to be still."

I did not complete the painting during that session but brought it home instead. After almost 2 weeks I picked it back up, uncertain how to complete the piece. But as with many of the prophetic pieces I've done, I have come to realize that the entire process is one that is hand-in-hand with the Holy Spirit. He will lead, even in the process of creating, and He will reveal what He wants to in time.

So almost 2 weeks later, I was sitting in my room staring at the half completed painting, bible open in hand, in the middle of my devotional time with the Lord, when things just fell into place and I knew 1) how to complete the painting and 2) what the message was.

Throughout the time completing this painting, the Lord was ministering to my heart deeply with the message of 'Fear Not'. Some days, I don't even know the extent of the issues of my heart until God comes along and points it out. And in a way only He can, He gently leads and begins working to unravel all the knots and tangles that we're caught in.

Even as I have completed the artwork, I know the message of 'Fear Not' is still something I am turning over and over again in my heart. Do you know how many times the Bible says 'fear not'? I don't either 😂 but it's a lot!
