When Yongsung Kim first envisioned The Hand of God painting, he was thinking of beautiful colors and a new perspective of Jesus Christ. Then he realized that this is what Peter would have seen when his faith faltered as he attempted to walk on the water, and it is what he saw when he calling out, "Lord, save me!"
The Hand of God picture depicts Jesus Christ reaching into the water for Peter. Through this painting Yongsung Kim gives each of us hope, comfort & peace. We each have failed in someway on our path to be like Jesus Christ and He is always there for us with His outstretched hands. We just need to reach up and grab His hand, the very hand of God.
Here are the verses in Matthew 14:28-31 that tell the story of The Hand of God painting by Yongsung Kim.
28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
We hope you enjoy this wonderful painting by Yongsung Kim. The Hand of God is a piece of artwork you heart and mind will never forget.
