No true prophecy comes from human initiative but is inspired by the moving of the Holy Spirit upon those who spoke the message that came from God. – 2 Peter 1:21 TPT-
I first drew the first image in 2002 or 2003 when I studied art in the Art Institute of Chicago. Those days I went to the Lake Michigan very often, alone, and spent a long time.
At that time, I drew whatever came to my mind, not knowing what I was doing. I made many drawings and threw many of them away. However, an image of this drawing has been kept in the internet drive for a long time. I didn’t pay any attention because it didn’t seem significant or meaningful.
Then many years passed. July 2020, I was attending a online class called “Walking on Water” by Jen Miskov and the class is about stepping out in faith. And there was a chapter called “Peace in the Storm.” I watched the video teaching about “Peace in the Storm” and I enjoyed it, and read the part of the book.
Several days later when I woke up, the image of the drawing that I made almost two decades ago popped up.
“Isn’t my drawing about walking on water + peace in the storm?”
I hurriedly searched my internet drive and found the drawing. And yes, the drawing was about “Walking on Water” + “Peace in the Storm” I was amazed.
When I drew the piece in 2002 or 03, I didn’t have much knowledge or understanding about the Bible. I was a nonbeliever and I don’t think I heard of the story of Peter walking on water to approach Jesus, or peace in the storm. But, somehow God gave me an idea of this drawing that tells the future – where I am going to be in the future.
I think God was telling me that I have been in His plan, I can’t go anywhere but His purpose on me, and therefore I am in the Peace in the Storm.
I thank and love my heavenly Father for his humor and care with surprising details.
The original line drawing is done by black ink pen, then I colored it with digital art program while taking the class.
