A Divine Intervention



Artist Statement

“A Divine Intervention” is 36” by 24 “ inch acrylic painting on canvas. This piece was inspired through a spiritual vision I had regarding the true nature of spiritual armor. Without it we are defenseless against our enemies, but fully clothed we are unbeatable, nothing can penetrate the true strength and defense of God’s divine armor/army. We must understand the importance of the armor in standing firm against the schemes of the devil. It is one thing to speak the words of the armor, it is quite another to seek the council of God to activate the true power that lies within the spiritual armor and receive The Divine blessing that is necessary to truly wage war against the enemy. God patiently awaits the warriors to come before His throne, upon a bended knee to receive the abundant blessings and Divine protection that is offered to each and everyone of us. For only then will we see freedom from oppression.

How it fits into contest

Although we wrestle not with flesh and blood, but with powers and principalities that may be, we are never alone in fighting the spiritual battle. The hand of God is always upon us, lifting us up, carrying us through, guiding and directing our paths in ways not always seen or known to us within the capacity of our physical beings. Although our naked eye may not always see the presence of The Divine, our spirits are capable of recognizing The Presence, as long as we are able to go to the place within to seek God’s guidance. We must simply be still, and know that He goes before us, leading the army of spiritual warriors that we all are. Before we are equipped to fight the good fight, we must fully clothe ourselves in the spiritual armor and humbly bow our head, bow our knee to receive the blessing of victory! For only then can we extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one and bring everlasting peace to the earth and mankind. Armor up brethren!
