The battle of Jericho is one of the most astounding miracles in the Bible, proving that God stood with the Israelites. It proves that I should not be terrified or discouraged as God is always with me. There is no wall or mountain too big for Him!
My artwork shows Abraham gazing at the stars and God promising him many descendants. For the black background, I used acrylic with a layer of glue on it to sprinkle the stars on. I coloured Abraham and the rock with colour pencils. This is one of the most iconic promises that God has made in the Bible as it marks the beginning of Israel.
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.
