I loved painting this picture, it gave me a sense of the intimacy and closeness with which Our Father in heaven desires to be.
He demonstrates His everlasting and continuous faithfulness to Israel His firstborn, and to all those who receive Him and are called by His Name.
He loves and nurtures all that He has made. Israel is the Apple of His eye, His firstborn son, through whom He has gathered Children from every tribe tongue and nation of the earth.
In this painting the hands of God the Father are positioned in such a way as to convey the intimate ‘hands on’ loving care of His Father Heart.
He tenderly watches over the growing seed which He planted in the midst of the earth.
Watching over every stage of life and growth, He continually provides everything that is needed for Israel to reach her ultimate destiny. His very near Presence.
