I haven’t painted in a long while.
My daughter and I felt the stirring in us to paint together, so we finally picked a day and she came over.
Just before painting a shiny sparkle on the wall by my fireplace caught my eye. I glanced away but it kept twinkling, like a beacon of light.
I went over to the wall and pressed my finger against it to pick it up. It was a brilliant silver HEART! A sign of the JOY about to be released into the atmosphere.
We started painting to a video on YouTube, attempting to recreate the artist’s picture, but soon started painting our own thing.
The painting then became a prophetic picture of what God was telling us separately in our life at that moment.
For both of us, at one point, we were frustrated with the way our painting was turning out. My daughter said that she was just going to do her own thing and have FUN with it.
I prayed that Holy Spirit would now paint through our hands, and boy, did He ever!
That first painting was one of walking in the woods down a narrow path with light streaming through the trees up ahead. The LORD was bringing me to a new place.
It was as though I stepped out of the woods and into this joy portal. My next few paintings were colourful and bright and released JOY! I started to see pictures within the pictures I was creating.
The Holy Spirit showed me a prophetic Word that was confirmed the next day by 2 sources. I t is amazing how God wants to talk to us in His creation.
He wants to release a tap of creativity to flow His pure crystal clear water, washing away the muddiness of our thinking and old mindsets.
He wants to renew our mind and place His thoughts in there. We learn to see things from His perspective, and what we see when we are open to His Spirit, will surprise us!
Painting with Jesus
A few months ago, during a 7 day fast, I had 2 nights of encounters with Jesus. Together we painted in my kitchen at the very table I paint at.
His face was one of pure joy, His hand became my hand, illuminated with Light, and we painted as one. He would look at my expression to see how I was reacting, and took delight in my reaction.
He said, “Let me show you this!” and we painted trees and flowers and butterflies. As we painted they CAME TO LIFE!
Just like I have heard about grass singing and flowers being alive in Heaven, these things we painted were alive, swaying, breathing, living things.
We painted fire and water colliding with each other, demonstrating the outpouring of His Spirit and fire on the earth.
In the fire, I can see His face, even though the painting was done at random. Images appear to tell a story of what He is saying prophetically.
At times my attention is attracted to a certain painting on my wall and He tells me to look at it. I begin to be taken into the painting, as if it is a portal, and I see more things in the painting than I did before.
Receive the Oil of Joy!
The Holy Spirit wants to pour out His oil of JOY on us, especially in this time of chaos. What could be more frustrating to the enemy who wants us to live in fear, than to be happy?
When we create, He creates through us. When we receive Him fully, His Spirit is released through us.
Sing and rejoice, oh daughter of Zion! For lo, I come, to dwell in the midst of you!
He is here! Release the joy factor! The enemy will flee from your mind, strongholds will be broken, and He will fill you with a supernatural peace that will release into the atmosphere around you.
“Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith The LORD,” Zechariah 2:10.
