"All the Little Children"
Watercolour on paper
In this painting before I even started painting I heard in my spirit the words “All the Little Children”.
The scripture I was hearing was Matthew 19:13-15
13 Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them.
14 But Jesus said”Let the children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And He laid His hands on them and departed from there (NKJV)
Children are gifts from God. Jesus loves children. He is elevating their faith in Him. His gentle hands are extending His kindness and love to them.
Jesus is reaching out to all the children and He is taking their hand, the touch of Jesus. He is placing His hands in theirs and blessing them. Through this painting He is communicating His affection for “all the little children”.
Come to Jesus like a child, possessing childlike faith and trusting Him.
The other scriptures that have blessed me as I have been painting have been:
Behold children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward (NKJV)
All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children (NKJV)
Coming to Jesus like a child, possessing childlike faith and trusting Him. The scripture Isaiah 26:3 comes to mind:
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You”.
Blessings and love to you today
