Tap into Your Creativity

“God created man in his own image.” Ge 1:27 NIV

The Bible says: “God created man in his own image…male and female he created them. God blessed them and said…‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over…every living creature that moves on the ground.’ Then God said, ‘I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours’” (vv. 27-29 NIV). God has given you everything required to succeed at whatever He’s called you to do. But you must tap into your God-given creativity! The Bible says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Pr 29:18). Every great accomplishment begins as a vision, and every God-given vision comes with the innate power to fulfill it. Others may be more educated and experienced, but they don’t have a monopoly on creativity. The chances are, there’s a “God-idea” inside you right now that’s just waiting to be released. By not tapping into it you’re settling for less than God wants you to have. Whatever you feel called to do—write, paint, preach, play a piano, build a business, nurse, teach—step out and do it. If you wait until you can do it perfectly or without criticism, you’ll never do it! Walking on water begins with one step of faith. It also brings you closer to Jesus. You see, Jesus wasn’t in the boat, He was out on the water saying to His disciples, “Come” (Mt 14:29 NKJV). Only one of them did: Peter. And though he did it imperfectly, it changed his life. So don’t be afraid, tap into your creativity and watch what happens.
