King Solomon asked God for wisdom to govern His people. This delighted God, and so God gave him wisdom to do just so. With wisdom from God, King Solomon was able to discern how to wisely deal with the two women who were fighting over a baby.
In my artwork, Jesus is depicted as descending onto earth riding on a cloud. He is triumphantly returning to earth to judge the living and the dead. There is colour pencil blending involved in my artwork as well as paint used. I thought of this because I read in the Bible that it is prophesied that He will one day return. My painting which shows His return thus gives hope to all Christians around the world that their Saviour has come to redeem them.
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 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.
