Genesis 1:27 (ESV)
So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
Have you ever said, “I’m just not the creative type.” Well, I am here to say that a statement like that is impossible. You are a human being, right? Let’s start with that assumption and go from there. If you are a human being, part of mankind, you were created in God’s image.
Just soak that in for a second. YOU were created in the image of God. What a powerful and awesome thing that the Maker used Himself as the blueprint for us.
So, we were created in His image and He created us. He created everything. He is the Creator. I think it takes creativity to be a creator, don’t you think? Do you see where I’m heading with this?
Yes! You were created in the creator’s image, so you can’t get around the fact that you, yes YOU, are creative.
It doesn’t matter if you’re type A, type B, a righty or lefty, introvert or extrovert. YOU are creative.
Now, creativity can be displayed in different ways. It doesn’t necessarily mean you’re artistic, fashionable, musical, or gifted in drawing or design. This realization will not turn your stick figures into fine art.
But creative talents can be shown in writing, science, technology, athletics, and even mathematics. There are infinite ways creativity can be used every day from problem-solving to people management, encouragement to empathy.
Are you ready to embrace your creative side?
Take a few minutes to ponder your creativity. In what ways are you creative?
Dear Lord, thank You for creating us to be creative and for the specific creative talents you have blessed us with. We ask You to show us how we can use our creative talents for Your glory. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
