Painting the Details

A painter’s work is often admired and established by particular aesthetics and details that make their painting unique. Every piece that has been crafted carries something distinctive that individualizes each painting from the rest. Just like that rare artwork, your life has been created and outlined with specifics in mind. God is the artist behind the the illustration of your life. You are the canvas that holds the features and structures of His masterpiece. There is beauty in the arrangement of patterns that God has laid before you. The composition of your life story demonstrates the tiny details that formed the picture of your faith. God will use every tool and instrument to help shape and form the pieces of your narrative. The particulars matter to God. He is so meticulous about everything that concerns you. This season, seek the presence of the Holy Spirit about the specifics pertaining to your plans and goals. There is an anointing that specifically serves your purpose and calling. There is provision that distinctly requires the small details that God has given you.

While a painting is in the process of completion, it is easy to give in. The delicacy of the intricate design takes time. Within the time that it is taking, God is building your patience, endurance and understanding about what you are producing in that season. The details matter because they are the foundation of your story. A story is almost always connected to a painting. The story is in what is mapped out on the canvas. Sometimes we wonder why the artist chose the materials and how the details were created in their work. The why and how matters so much in your life. God is using every single moment, big or small to remind you that it is all part of the bigger picture. The things you feel that do not matter, absolutely matter to Jesus.

Be still while God is painting the details. God has the resources. Just give Him the time as He creates the best illustration for your life. Everything will make sense when the timing is right. Your prayers are part of the painting. Your waiting is part of the painting. Your pain is part of the painting. Your tears are part of the painting. No detail is ever left unused. God takes into consideration everything that has happened to you. He has accounted for all of your circumstances. Your greatest moments, not yet seen, lie within the details of God’s vision for your life. It feels like you have been waiting a lifetime for that healing, but God is still building the details that are needed in your restoration. You have been waiting for an answer to your prayer; God is still working on the particulars that are required for your promise. The specifics take time. Just like that painting, God is perfecting the heavenly moments that He can only orchestrate. The details matter to Him. You are so divinely thought of; God is going to surpass all of your expectations in this season. The details are the indication of God’s grace within the painting of your life. God is so intentional about you that He is not going to pass over any details that are necessary for your purpose—trust Him.
