One New Man Art Painting: Watching Over

Watching Over

Scriptures: “Indeed He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you - the Lord is your shade at your right hand.” (Psalm 121:4,5)

“But the eye of their God was watching over the elders of the Jews, and they were not stopped until a report could go to Darius and his written reply be received.” (Ezra 5:5)

“It is a land the Lord your God cares for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.” (Deuteronomy 11:12)

“Then I will send the rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil.” (Deuteronomy 11:14)

“Precious and of great consequence, in the sight of the Lord Is the death of His godly ones so He watches over them.” (Psalm 116:15)

“He went ahead of you on your journey, in fire by night and in a cloud by day, to search out  a place for you to pitch your tents, and to show you the way you should go, in the fire by night and in the cloud by day.” (Deuteronomy 1:33)

“Casting all your cares, all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all on Him, for He cares about you with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully.” (1 Peter 5:7)

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.
