By My Spirit
30 x 40
This painting is a creative depiction of moving forward into the call of God on your life. When you are in a season of waiting it can be tempting to start thinking that God is waiting for you to make something happen and while obedience is of utmost importance, taking matters into your own hands in order to speed up the timeline you are on will never bear good fruit. The fruition of the call of God in your life happens from a place of complete Rest and Surrender, trusting God to be God of every detail, including timing, power and resources. Everything He has called you to do will bear good and lasting fruit only when accomplished by the Spirit of the living God within you. Don’t be tempted to fret during the season of waiting. Enjoy waiting on Him. Keep your senses tuned to His presence and His word, letting the cry of your heart be a quick “Yes and Amen” to his direction.
The person’s posture of active surrender in this painting symbolizes this attitude of waiting on Him in alert readiness. The swirling movement throughout the piece represents the distinct and intentional movement of Holy Spirit as He brings the word of direction to achieve His purposes. The winged figure in the top left is a symbol of Rest; reminding you that it is not by your might or power but by His Spirit that His purposes are accomplished both in and through you.
