Tap into God’s Creativity

Tap into God’s Creativity

“He…reveals his thoughts to man.” Am 4:13 NIV

A well-known minister writes: “A while back I bought an interesting flashlight. Before I decided to buy it I asked the saleslady how long the battery would last. ‘As long as you do,’ she replied. ‘What do you mean?’ I queried. ‘You are the battery,’ she explained. ‘There’s no battery inside. You have to pump the handle at the bottom of the flashlight to make it light up.’ I tried it, and sure enough I generated the power needed to make it light up! As soon as I stopped pumping the light went out…If you make the right commitment to an idea but it seems impossible…pray…and keep pumping. Bright ideas will come your way—ideas that come from God” (Isa 48:17). Albert Einstein said it’s important that we never stop asking questions, or lose our holy curiosity. God’s Word says He “forms the mountains…creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man.” Imagine tapping into the resources of a God Who knows you and can fill your mind with imaginative, inspired, innovative “thoughts.” Jesus knows the mind of God, the plans of God, the will of God, and the purposes of God because He is God. And Paul says, “We understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ” (1Co 2:16 NLT). As Ted Engstrom observes, “Creativity has been built into every one of us. Each of us lives less of the life God intended when we choose not to release the creative powers we possess.” When you tap into God’s creativity, He helps you see things not as they are, but as they can be. And that can change your life!
