The Bible contains all His promises. Whenever we are anxious or fearful, reading His Word gives us hope and comfort. He promised us – His children – that He will never leave us nor forsake us. He promised to protect and guide us (His children). Knowing all these, we can face our future with courage. Other than that, a rainbow is painted as the background. That is because the rainbow symbolizes that God is faithful and that He will not break His promises. The colours of the rainbow remind me of His beauty.
The ram’s horn or shofar is most recognised as a musical instrument to call the people to repentance, for war, to worship and healing. But a ram’s horn is also frequently used as an instrument to carry the Oil used in anointing, praying for the sick, for consecration and as a mark of God’s spirit upon the person. The believer is to be like a ram’s horn – a call to God’s salvation – the hope in Christ but also a storage instrument of blessing to others. The purple background is a reminder of our royal priesthood.
God promised Abraham that his descendants will have Canaan as their homeland. (Genesis 26:4-5)
As the Israelites were leaving Egypt to cross over to their Promised Land in the desert, they yearned for something different besides their daily diet. In God’s grace, He provided them with manna at dawn and quail at twilight. (Exodus 16:10-16) God always keep His promises. Besides our basic needs, He even provides us with extras. It reminds us that God’s grace and blessings are aplenty. We should work harder to extend His Kingdom. Better things are yet to come. The lily symbolises purity, hope, and life in Jesus Christ.
The world is about to be flooded and there are still obstacles between the snails and the Ark. The sea between the Ark and the snails represents the obstacles the snails have to overcome in order to be safe from the flood. I chose to illustrate this because the Ark, which represents God, provides a sense of hope that motivates everyone – that no matter who you are, to face all your challenges and not give up.
