This painting depicts the bride of Christ, which is all of us, and the constant spiritual war we daily face. The enemy is always throwing flaming arrows at us, while God's promises and standing on the Word is what sustains and strengthens us.
The painting represents the battlefield of the mind and the being torn between believing God's promises but also being attacked with things like fear, doubt, torment or hard circumstances. Even when a follower of Christ, the enemy continuously tries to steal, kill, and destroy. It is crucial that we put on the armor of God daily and stand firm on the Word. My painting specifically emphasizes the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit because these two pieces of armor stand out most to me in Ephesians 6. For me, declaring truth over my circumstances in life has brought a lot of healing, proving that God's word is sharper than any attacks from the enemy (Hebrews 4:12).God's word is our ultimate protection and is our source of life.
