Have you ever considered yourself creative in any way? If you haven’t, truth is that you are denying yourself of certain fulfillment you suppose to be getting in life. Ability to create is not something far-reaching, it’s who God made us to be.
Work is fulfilling with more of creative power in place than struggling with physical effort. Creativity contrary to some school of thoughts is not for a selected few special individuals. It is not only for genius. It is for every child of God.
You are Created in Creator’s Image
Man was made in God’s image. In fact, God spoke by Himself and said, “Let Us make man in our image, after our likeness…so God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them” (Genesis 1:26-27).
Take note of “Image and Created” mentioned three times in that two verses. That tells us that you and I were made in God’s image and the One in whose Image we were made is the Creator who created us.
Now, if you are made in the image of your creator, then who are you? What are you also suppose to be doing? Yes! Creating. In other words, there’s a creator in you. You have God-wired capability to produce what has not existed before. You are the visible image of the invisible Creator. And He’s glad when you display your true originality – by being creative.
One of the greatest necessities on earth is to discover creative power designed with you
Discovering and cultivating your creative capacities will compensate for deep vacuum of personal dissatisfaction you may keep having in your work. Creative people are productive and fulfilled in their endeavours. It is not optional if you really want to come out of the rut of routine and boring lifestyle.
Be Stirred Up in Your Spirit
Often times, just like Alfred North observed, Periods of tranquility are seldom prolific of creative achievement. Something must definitely stir your spirit up to bring out the creative power in you. It sometimes may come in form of a challenge, problem, pain or difficulty – but our creative power needs to be challenged before it can be activated.
God’s Spirit can Activates Your Creative Power
When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, He can help you activate your creative power if you will allow Him. He will stir you up, give to you special wisdom to get things done in a special way.
Release Your Talents and Gifts for God’s Purpose
Creative power often works with our talents and gifts but you need to release them to accomplish God’s purpose. Your creativity through your talents must not be abused. Don’t be among those who are misusing talents for destruction.
To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong
– Joseph Chilton
There’s more to your life than the level you are now. You are God’s image that we can see, so activate the creative power He wired inside you. It’s in your creative action that you can enter into your fulfilling work and fully unlock your potentials.
We must accept that this creative pulse within us is God’s creative pulse itself
