Before I talk about what this angel was doing when I saw it, please check out my first angel painting, ‘Grace’s Angel’ for some background and a bit of angel theology. I feel the need to reiterate again and again, when I see & paint angels they are gifts from our Father in Heaven for the purpose of ministering His will toward us. Angels are never to be worshiped and what you see here is my best depiction of the beauty and prophetic purpose that I saw, more than an exact replica. I for one am so grateful that the Lord sends us these ministering spirits to help us on our way. Each time I have seen an angel I take what I saw right back to the Holy Spirit for confirmation, clarification & prophetic meaning. This one was on a special mission for Jesus that brings tears to my eyes when I think about it….
Gabi is the younger sister of Grace, who’s angel I painted a bit ago. You can read the story of how I know these sweet girls by clicking the ‘Grace’s Angel’ link in the first paragraph.
Gabi is a little spitfire with the most adorable smile. She has more energy than any child I have ever met and is as equally intense & serious as she is playful if you can imagine. There is something deep going on behind those dark brown eyes that none of us may ever grasp, but oh does God have a plan for this little one!
When her sister asked me if I could see their angels I had barely opened my mouth to respond when Gabi matter-of-factly blurted, “I see mine, she’s wearing a viking hat.” Before she finished her sentence, there it was… On it’s knees, nose to nose with Gabi. Literally, their noses were touching. Gabi, oblivious to the seer gift she’s been given, goes on about her normal play, while I silently ask the Lord what the angel is doing. His response is INCREDIBLE. The angel is warring of course. But not only warring for Gabi, it’s imparting and teaching Gabi to war herself. Nose to nose this intently serious being breathes the wisdom & strength of the Lord for battle into the child unawares.
When I told her mom what we saw she totally got it. It made perfect sense and she kind of laughed in a ‘We need all the help we can get with this one’ kind of way. God knows. Her will and gusto is not a surprise to the Lord who knit her together. Her over the top energy & moxie are there for a Kingdom purpose. She is fierce, and someday she is going to help set the captives free in Jesus’ mighty name. This one is being girded with power & love for battle before her tiny frame is big enough to even bear armor. Our God is AMAZING and His gifts are irrevocable. (Romans 11:29) Kinda makes you wonder what He was doing with you as a child right? Maybe it’s time to ask Him…
Again one having the appearance of a man touched me and strengthened me. And he said, “O man greatly loved, fear not, peace be with you; be strong and of good courage.” And as he spoke to me, I was strengthened…(Daniel 10:18-19)
The angel of the LORD encamps round about them that fear him, and delivers them. (Psalm 37:4)
