From the Artist:
These days there is much on the horizon that can bring a wave of panic and fear. In every direction, the enemy comes to intimidate with overwhelming force. The enemy wants to make you cower in fear and cause you to look at your dire circumstances. At times like these, we must take up our position in the battle. It might feel like you are completely alone, but when you are standing with God, you are in a majority against the enemy. So be brave, and put on the armor of God that was made especially for you. I believe in this day and age, God is going to give us His perspective on the battle, as well as what the enemy is up to. He will shine a light of understanding and reveal to us what he is up to with thoughts and visions he promised in the last days. He will give us strength and we can take courage because of His promises to us. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 Know that we are able to battle in the spiritual realms with singing and praise! We can defeat the enemy by simply retelling the tales of the victories God has done in our lives. We can send the dark forces away and bind them up with a single word. We have power – because HE IS IN US.
My new painting depicts the time when the servant of Elisha came out early one morning and saw the enemy army coming to capture Elisha. He ran back in afraid and when Elisha came out with him to see what was going on, he simply prayed “Open his eyes so he can see” and the servant’s eyes were opened and he saw what Elisha stated next (2 Kings 6:16) “More are with us than are with them.” So the next time a wave of fear comes upon you and the enemy is right in your face – Look up – and ask to receive a glimpse of what God is up to! He has promised to never leave us or forsake us. He has demonstrated over the ages that He comes to the aid of those who trust in Him. So, trust Him – He has a plan and will let you be a part of it when we have the faith to see what He is up to.
