Last week on Lessons from the Lake, I shared how I have been feeling that God is moving us to a place where it is finally time we Kick Fear to the Curb.
At church recently, my daughter, painted a picture during our worship time she titled ‘Searching for Truth’ The picture was powerful, but when combined with the meaning of what she felt God had given her, it was even more powerful. Watch today’s video for more….
Jeremiah 29:13 – 14
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity
At our church, we allow artists to paint during our worship service, this is what we call prophetic art. It entails an artists seeking God as to what He wants them to paint during the worship time. They also ask God for a Scripture or an encouraging word to go with the picture/painting.
It is always powerful to see how the Holy Spirit is moving and breathing through all aspects of the service from the prophetic art, the worship, to the message even when we haven’t communicated with each other verbally in advance.
Here is the full encouraging word God gave to her the picture she was to paint a few Sunday’s ago.
The painting has a two part meaning:
- I searched for the truth, all I found was You (Jesus) …
- Searching for truth no matter the cost inspired by the song Take it All by Press Play
The great thing about prophetic art, is that it speaks to those who view it in slightly different ways. When I first saw the painting, I immediately thought of the forest being the darkness, the unknown, those things that can be fearful in our lives. Yet, we must press forward and allow Jesus to be the light on our path. However, when my daughter, Brandi, shared the full encouraging word that she received, it made more of an impact.
I love how the Holy Spirit moves and speaks to our hearts and gives us exactly what we need.
We then hang the paintings in our lobby area with the encouraging words for a few weeks, before they end up going home with whoever purchased it, so that others can view them and allow the Spirit to minister to them as well.
