I love this painting! Did you know that you really can feel your paintings?
I have been in secular art shows and felt the anointing of the Holy Spirit on paintings! Paintings of things that had no Christian images, but still, I could feel His presence on them. I have even boldly gone up to the artists and said, “You love the Lord!” They would look at me funny, and say, “I do! How did you know that?” Other times I have seen art that would cause me to begin to weep and not be able to speak, because the pleasure of God was so great on their work, it would overwhelm me.
I was at one show, looking at some jewelry and all of a sudden, I could not contain the tears. I had to leave this woman’s booth. I was with a friend and they asked if I was ok, but I could not talk to them, I was too overcome with emotion. I just KNEW that this woman LOVED Jesus, and that was all I could say, “She loves Jesus…”
My friend was curious, and went back to her booth later to ask her some questions. He found out that, sure enough, she did love Jesus. She had defected from her country and come to the US to be able to worship freely. She was not sure how she would be able to support herself when she met a Christian that had taught her how to create jewelry. She was so grateful, for him, because he helped her learn a way provide for herself. She said she created her jewelry as worship unto Jesus!!
Someone came to me in a meeting once and asked me if I had felt my paintings. I realized, I never had. I feel His presence as I paint so strong sometimes I can hardly stand, but I had never felt Him on my art. I was painting “The Golden Eagle: Seer”, at a School of the Seers, and he said when I started painting, the anointing went out about 3 ft or so, and as I continued to paint, it became larger and larger. I thought that was very interesting. I also enjoyed watched him as he walked around my painting “feeling” it.
I had brought the Lion and the Lamb painting with me, a prophetic piece I created, where the crowns came at the last minute, by the Spirit. I also remembered that when I was painting this piece, a woman felt led to walk up to see it closer during a break. I was speaking with some women off the platform and watched her move towards the painting. When she got about 10 ft or so away, she cried out and fell backwards. The women I was speaking with saw it too. I asked the woman later what happened, and she told me she had always wanted to be “slain in the spirit”, but did not trust a man or woman to do it, so God decided to use His presence on my painting to bless her.
The man asked me to come and stand in front of it. He prayed for God to let me feel the anointing on my painting, and as I stood there, I did not know what I would feel, but to my surprise, I felt a Crown being placed on my head!!!! Totally wrecked me!
After that, I went back to my “Golden Eagle: The Seer” painting and every time I would look at it, especially the eagle’s eyes, I could feel an anointing come on my eyes! I felt like He told me that my painting was being used to release a seer anointing!
When I was painting the Lion and Lamb painting, I ree
I always experience my paintings prophetically, then worship and pray as I paint them. I believe that God has me do this so that He can rest in them. Just like a song can carry His presence, everything created as worship to Him, can carry Him too.
great and encouraging blog today…I’ve been contemplating a fabric wall hanging that the Lord gave me a sense of last year. I need to do it and trust Him for the skills I need to complete it. I do sometimes feel my work. it’s also how I choose fabrics when I make a quilt for someone. thanks Chrisie.
Wonderful Ginnie! Thanks for the comment! 🙂 I pray you will get that wall hanging done and it will carry His presence in a tangible measure!
