Creating From the Spirit
Bible verse to read 📖 Exodus 35: 4-22
A creativity prayer
Lord, thank you for creation itself and the incredible gifts and talents you so generously entrust to me. May I appreciate and develop these talents, always recognizing that they come from you and remain yours. Guide me in using them for the benefit of everyone that I touch, so that they may be more aware of your presence and develop the creativity entrusted to them for the good of others. Let us be faithful with the gift of creativity you have given us, so we use it to your glory and the growing of the body of Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen

Creativity: the use of the imagination or original ideas (especially in the production of an artistic work)
Creativity is not just painting and drawings
God gave us Creativity to show what a creative God he is (Gen 1:1-2) and for us to create for his glory.
My page is focused in Noah's Creativity building the ark. (Gen 6). God provided Noah instructions on how to build the Ark and what living creatures to fill with. Noah expressed his creativity when he built the ark as the Lord asked.
What's your creative skill?
Can you sew, like Tabitha who sewed for others and gave to the needy?
Are you skilled in playing an instrument having the healing power of music, like how David played the harp for Saul?
Are you gifted with wisdom like Solomon who spoke 3000 proverbs and 1005 songs?
Can you tell parables like Jesus did when telling stories?
These are some examples of creativity found in the bible.
We are all creative, if you know your gifted skill, are you using "whatever gift you have received to serve others?"... (1 Peter 4:10)
