This is an excerpt from a devotion on Creativity written by our founder, Kaleigh Hamilton-Bishop. You can download the full devo in our shop.
So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. —Genesis 1:27
Did you know that you were created by God? Formed and fashioned, from the beginning of time He knew you and loved you and said, “You. You are My child.”
But not only did God create you, He created you “in the image of God”. If your life reflects the character of God, don’t you think that would make you creative as well? God is the ultimate Creator, as we see in Genesis. So, if God is creative, and you were made in the image of God, then you are creative. It’s not a debate. It’s not up for discussion. You were created; therefore, you are creative.
Creativity is in the very makeup of our souls. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about being artistic. There are people who are artists, and there are people who are.... well, not. Artists are creative but creatives are not always artists. PEOPLE are always creative.
Think of some of the ways God has made you creative. The ability to sympathize, the ability to problem solve, the ability to see details or to see the “big picture”. Heck, the ability to make a budget work can be highly creative!
How many times have you thought less of yourself or others because you didn’t think the word “creative” applied? Our society has made creativity a term used for an elite few, but the Bible tells us that we were ALL made in the image of the Ultimate Creator. Walk in the confidence that you were made in the image of the Creator and see just how creative you can be.
