"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge."
Ever since encountering the love of God as a student at Arizona State University, Heidi Ngai knew her art and passion for seeing the beauty all around us would never be the same. After graduating with a degree in fine arts, with an emphasis in painting, she asked the Lord what she should do with her ability to apply a brush to a canvas. To her surprise He seemed to be leading her to simply paint during the worship at her church and trust that He would do the rest. Through that simple step of obedience, God has taken her on an adventure she would have never imagined, painting the beauty of His purposes and heart often through symbolic paintings done during times of worship. Not only have many of her paintings spoken directly to the hearts of the recipients of her work, but she has also been given the gift of inspiring others to hear from God and create their own visual worship to the Lord through art workshops she began teaching in 2009. Since that time, testimony after testimony has revealed the impact of what God can do through the arts and His love for this creative worship.
What is Prophetic Art?
Worship art is a work of art which reveals the Father's heart, His thoughts and intent, prophecies, strategies and timetable. It comes with form, line, texture, colors, symbols to enter through the human eyes and senses to lodge like an arrow into the hearts and spirit of men. There can be completely new images or Biblical references weaved together. These art pieces are beautiful and inspirational. They bring understanding, appreciation and remembrance for what God did in biblical times for the purpose of bringing our hearts closer to Him as well as the revelation that God is communicating now. He is sending a visual "speech" which must be responded to now. These works come with a sense of immediacy and urgency and timing. Usually it comes in through the eyes and hits the heart in a deep and profound way.
