This Mozambique painting occurred as I knew that several friends on a team there would be going into the bush bush via boat. So I spent some time soaking and God showed me this picture of five angels blowing shofars over them. Five is the number representing grace.
“Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” And He said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then He rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey Him?” –Matthew 8
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
and the Lord hears them;
He delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Psalm 34:17-18 Romans 15:13
Though outwardly I may be wasting away, yet inwardly I am being renewed day by day. I fix my eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. I have the same love and same purpose as Jesus. I do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than myself. My attitude will be as that of Christ Jesus. I shall allow the Holy Spirit to renew my mind day by day. I have the heart and mind of Christ, Therefore I am able to see as He sees, hear as He hears, and speak what He speaks. Those things in my life that do not line up with the Word and Revelation of God, I choose to pull down and take captive to the obedience of Christ
