Brush Strokes

Isaiah 43:18
“For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not
see it? I will make a pathway through
the wilderness. I will create rivers in
the dry wasteland.”
– NLT‬‬

The patterns, the textures, the sequence, the strokes, the colours, the visibility, the clarity and the beauty. This work of art is simply amazing because each day is a master piece. Over the past few weeks, I have been taking note of the skies and the way in which the clouds form. I’ve been intrigued and excited about it all the time because I keep learning and becoming more aware of how big our God is. To be honest, I believe it is a way God is teaching us to magnify Him and minimize the problems and mountains in our lives.
I am not an artist neither do I have the eye for detailed and intricate things like paintings or drawings but the way in which the clouds have been formed makes me know that it is a work done by a master craftsman. The tiny little details and swirling’s look like a painter who makes careful movements of his brush. Each day, the clouds looked like a beautiful piece of canvas that had already been prepared.

Psalm 147:8
“He covers the heavens with clouds,
provides rain for the earth, and makes
the grass grow in mountain pastures.”
– ‭NLT

I had a revelation where I saw a huge chest of drawers in a very large room. The room was filled with so many of these drawers and had no doors or windows. I could see walls and they were painted cream. The chest of drawers was made of silver and each of it had a golden-brown knob to open. Each drawer had a month and a year attached to it. As curious as I was, I started to ask questions, why are they so many? What could be hidden in these? Why are there numbers and dates?

Then I saw an angel open one of these drawers with the month July 2017 written across it. In those drawers were many canvas paintings that were numbered according to the dates in the month. Each day and hour/minutes had a particular painting. So whenever the time is near, an angel goes to place the canvas in the skies. And that is how come, the weather can change by the minute because each one has been crafted beautifully and gracefully to serve a purpose at a point in time. The details of the colours, the strokes of the brushes on the canvas, the contours and pattern of tones used in each one of them is amazing.

Now imagine how that will be, that each day and time in the year, there’s a specific look for the clouds and the skies depending on which time zone you find yourself in. God is simply amazing and He continues to show His Glory and greatness in the skies through the clouds.

Psalm 19:1
“The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display his craftsmanship.”
– NLT‬‬

I was always awestruck when I looked up because I could not fathom how Great and awesome our God is.

Then the Holy Spirit whispered this in my ears, “Why then do you worry?” Why can we not trust God during the storms or turbulence? Even the clouds are assured of a brighter day tomorrow. And they are even assured of a new painting by the minute or hour. Then this verse came to mind, you are of more value than many sparrows- wow! (Matthew 10:31) Our Father in heaven places so much value on us. His love is beyond endless and He keeps demonstrating it to us each and everyday of our lives. How awesome!

I want to encourage you today, you have not been forgotten by Our Father. He loves you and has amazing and mind-blowing plans for you. What you need to do is trust Him and rely entirely on Him. He will come through in a way when you least expect it. The clouds drew my attention to how much God is working behind the scenes for us.

So, the next time you find yourself worried or disturbed, look into the skies and watch the clouds as they move and change each minute and each day, then be reminded that your situation is not permanent.

…Inspired by the Holy Spirit! 😁
