Creative Obedience

Not a Hobby

"I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,w when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep" -- Proverbs 8:27-28.

Wisdom was present when God created the earth! This wisdom is of course not a body of information but rather a person:, Jesus our Lord, "in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Colossians 2:3). Therefore, a relationship with Jesus is the key to making creativity all it can be, for He understands the essence of creativity, since He was there at the beginning of Creation. Do you pray for wisdom for your creativity? Do you involve Jesus in the creative process? Do you realize that you have access to the same creative wisdom that produced the universe and all you behold? Are you tapping into the depth of that wisdom?

Once again, Lord, I see that my creativity is not a hobby, but is related to the very creative act of the world coming into existence. Forgive me where I have not taken my creativity seriously enough. I promise to seek You more diligently for wisdom so that I can create in a powerful way that will be worthy of Your attention and use, as you see fit.
