Ephesians 6:12 tells us we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Although the battle is in the spiritual realm, we can feel it in the physical. The painting is representative of a soul breaking free from the clutches of a principality's oppression as the sky around begins to storm and reflect such powerful freedom and battle.
I've found the mind is a battle field where many victories, strongholds and or losses are achieved. Thoughts can bring us to extreme heights of joy or bottomless lows of emotional storms as our minds are bombarded with negative accusations, temptations, and identities. This abstract painting of a soul breaking free from the hold of a principality of spirit is representative of the solitude in which we can get trapped in and the power of Christ that can break us free from them. The armor of God to me, is the identity of Christ woven into my own. In times of depression, oppression, loneliness, fear etc, what Christ has done, the blood he shed, the sonship he gave, is the only defense I have to silence and combat the enemy. In a time I found myself under negative thoughts and what felt like an onslaught of spiritual accusations, I expressed the battle to break free of darkness in the heavy handed brush strokes and aggressive swipes of a palette knife
I would thank many people who have constantly reminded me to lean into/on the promises of God and the covering of grace in Jesus, that helps me overcome times of emotional torment and challenges.
