In my paintings I would like to show the strength of God and the acts of living faith. Me is not important, I would like to point to God.
It's an oil painting on canvas. Size: 50x70cm
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." 1Peter 4:10
We all experience two kinds of war throughout our lifetime. One is an internal war. We have to win it first with the help of God. When we confess our sins and accept the grace of God, and take the hand of Jesus, we are able to focus on the light and not the darkness, and the next step in the journey. Until this, we had fears, uncertainties, and dark thoughts running through our heads. In this messy state, we can hardly hear the silent voice of Jesus. From the time we fully trust in God and his timing, we can be peaceful without fear, even in the darkest times of our lives, like Daniel or Jonah.
My painting, Infinite Wonders, shows the life after winning this internal war. Its light colors and the strong fundamental basis of Jesus open many, many wonders to us. Based on the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we can be strong and be builders of the plan of God. We do not rely on our own strength any more; we have put on the full armor of God.
The second war is outside in the world, and after the first war is over within us, we can start our journey with Jesus and be an authentic representative of God.
The narrow road is not easy, but God always surprises us with his endless grace, so worth it to be strong and use our talents to build the plan of God. The colourful strips in my painting represent the versatility of our talents and the versatility of the wonders of God. Where are the people of God? Where can we see them? We can see their acts for others. We will experience many, many wonders, and see the fall of the strongest walls built by our enemies. Non-believers will ask, "Who is the God who is doing this?" if we do what God wants us to do. And we can say he is Jesus.
