Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made – John 1:3 (NIV)
God first introduces Himself to us as a creator. The Bible also states that He made you and I in His image and likeness which means we are also creators. Since God made you to be like Him, He also made you to create and innovate like Him. He will not come down to give you a chair to sit on, but He has already provided you with the materials – wood, metal, polymer and so on. God created the garden but instructed Adam to work and care for it because He had put the wisdom and innovative ability in Adam to do so. All resources and raw materials have been made available to humanity to keep creating, enhancing and evolving humanity.
You will need creativity and innovation through various times and seasons to remain relevant in this ever-evolving world. The skills you learn today will not be enough for current and future challenges. It’s one thing to finish school with a first class degree but another to be able to think outside the box and be a game-changer in spite of the skills you’ve acquired. What are you doing with the creativity God put in you? How are you working with it to remain relevant? Creativity is in your DNA… use it!
Have a restful weekend.
Confession: I am a relevant personality in my industry. I possess creative and innovative prowess and from today, I put it to good use through the wisdom and grace of God inside of me in Jesus name.
