Created To Be Creative

26 Mar

Often times, too many people leave undone things they are expected and required to do believing that God will do them. They go about complaining, worried that their prayers don’t get answered. They don’t realize it, but they are unconsciously robbing themselves of God’s blessings. Here is the key: God is not going to do for you what you can always do on your own. Pastor Olusola Areogun said, “God will do for you the impossible while you’re involved doing the possible. Don’t leave it to God.”

Genesis 1 verse 27 shows us that God has created us in His own image and after His likeness. In other words, God has made us to be like Himself, look like Himself, think like Himself, to have His kind of attitude, live like Himself, and also to be as creative as He is. Friends, that is the generosity of the God we serve!

Notice that before or during creation, no one has ever created anything similar to all God made. All that God has made are so unique and original. Therefore, if you’ve got a dream on your inside, don’t mind if people think it’s crazy, go on, believe on those dreams God has placed inside you – be like Him! It doesn’t matter if it has not been done before, the experts may not recognise it; but what matters is the inner voice that tells you, “it can be done.” It may be ‘unpopular’, but don’t get bordered; you can achieve it because God hasn’t termed it ‘impossible’.

Have faith, live the life you’ve imagined, impact the little corner of the world you find yourself. You may say, “Oh David, I don’t have the resources, the finance, the right people to support and encourage me.” Quit complaining. I can assure you that you may not have ‘all to start with’, but you have ‘what to start with’ – the brain God has given you.

Most important is that whatever you are going to do, make sure it is to God’s glory. Somebody said, “Your talent is God’s gift to you, what you do with it is your gift back to God.” This is my question to you: what would you give God in return? Something displeasing or something precious.

I’m asking you to give God in return the most precious things you can ever afford – your time, your abilities, products of the creativity He has placed inside you – and you will be surprise, beyond imagination, how far God can take you.

    My thoughts exactly! Too many people die with the music still in them, as they let fear, doubt, uncertainty and insecurities hold them back. Keep the faith and listen to your soul…that is where the answer you desire resides. God gave us all special talents and not to use them – especially to serve others – would be wrong. Taking that leap of faith can be scary, but well worth the effort!

      That’s right Mrs Butenas. You made brilliant points and a lovely contribution. In fact, you lifted my spirit 🙂 Service to others with our God-given talent isn’t just a responsibility, but should be the reason for living – since we don’t live in isolation. Thank you.
