This artwork is about how God’s promise of freedom extends from events in Exodus to the New Testament. In Exodus, he freed His people from slavery; four thousand years later, He freed them from sin through Jesus. Through this, we can be encouraged to put our hope in God who is always faithful.
In a particularly dark time in my life, I awoke to this beautiful sight of amazing cirrus clouds painted over the blue morning sky. It was a comforting reminder of the hope and promise that His steadfast love never ceases and his mercies never end – they are new every morning! Great is thy faithfulness!
I like to draw things that move – e.g. trucks, cars and ships. My artwork shows a very big ark with Noah’s family and animals in it. I imagined the ark to have a crane to carry cargo on it. God kept Noah’s family and every pair of creature alive in the ark according to His promise. The dove found no land to stand on, so it returned to the ark.
My piece illustrates God’s might and magnificence personified in Eagles. The silhouette of the big eagle is God and the small eagle is man. God promised His daily provision of strength for a believer through life when we fix our eyes upon Him, upon His cross. As we pray unceasingly and trust Him, He will empower us.
God does not lead you into wilderness to harm you. He leads you there to completely depend on Him. The dry places will bring you into a deeper intimacy with Him and you will no longer view Him as being far away. You will come to know Him in closeness and confidence. God always keeps His promises. He has the power to make them, and He has the power to fulfil them.
