Title: “Strength in the Spirit”
“If we live by the Spirit let us also walk by the Spirit.”– GALATIANS 5:25
This art piece captures a life transformed by the Holy Spirit. The horse is a beautiful, spirited creature that can be gentle and reserved, yet powerful with the strength he possesses. He has the capability and power to do his will at any time, but his gentleness is more appealing. The Holy Spirit can do His will at any time, but through His gentle nudging and prompting, we begin to feel empowered. As we walk with Jesus and find strength in the Holy Spirit, our lives are transformed to a new creation of confidence in the Lord.
The rough wood pieces of the horse represent many of us as we struggle to accept the Holy Spirit into our lives. The brightly colored pieces of wood represent when we begin the transformation to receive much joy.
