Be Creative – David Ibiyeomie

At creation, God empowered everyone with the ability to create. To create simply means to bring into existence. As a child of God, you have the creative mind of God in you.

1 Cor.3:16 -Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

You have the capacity and unlimited ability for creativity. You have the mind of Christ in you; therefore, you are supposed to be creative as a child of God. I see you enter that realm fully in the name of Jesus!

Until the creative force is put to use, it will never be on display.

Job 32:8 –But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

The Holy Ghost in you has the ability to create things out of nothing. When it comes to creativity, there is always a dynamic move. God created man in His own image in Gen.1 and gave man the authority to replicate whatever He had done. If you are not creative, then something is missing because you ought to be creative like God who you are His express image. The only wise God did not give birth to foolish children. Therefore, from today, the creative grace of God will come alive in you in the name of Jesus!

It is an abnormality for a child of God to be stranded. The reason many Christians are stranded in life is that they are wishing for something to happen instead of doing things themselves. God did not wish heaven and earth; He created heaven and earth. So, you don’t wish success; you create it. The principal tool for creativity is wisdom.

Prov.3:19 –The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

Psalm 104:24 –O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

Everything that you are seeing in this world is wisdom-made and the sit of wisdom is your mind. Many Christians develop their spirits by fasting and praying. They also develop their bodies by eating well and exercising but they don’t take out time to develop their minds. Your earthly success is a function of your mind.

The reason you need to develop your mind for creativity is that if you are not creative, you will not achieve success in life. Money does not make people but creativity does. Money is a by-product of wisdom- the wiser you are, the richer you become.

Wealth is a function of your capacity to think and creativity is of the mind. True university is not just acquiring certificates; it is proffering solutions to the challenges of today. So, stop celebrating paper and start celebrating creativity; a creative person can never be sacked from work. That is why you must go for creativity. Joseph became a Prime Minister through creativity.

1 Cor.2:16 -For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

2 Tim.1:6 –Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

Every child of God has a gift of creativity. There is a gift inside you waiting for a stirring. That you are not using the gift now does not mean that it is not there; it is there but needs a stirring.

2 Cor.4:3-4 –But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Satan’s work is to blind people’s mind so as not to be creative. I lose you from such grip in the name of Jesus!

One of the reason many believers are not creative is due to arrival mentality. Success not improved upon becomes obsolete. Don’t allow one achievement take your mind off-course.

Micah 2:10 – Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.

Don’t think that you have arrived because the path of the just is as a shining light that shines more and more unto a perfect day. If you want creativity, don’t think where you are now is the best; there is still room for improvement. Creative people don’t believe they have arrived. What may look good today may look obsolete tomorrow. Always improve on every success you have.

Some people attribute failures to spells and enchantments from witches and wizards.

Num.23:23 –Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!

Every successful person will always have enemies but the enemies are not permitted to stop your creativity.

Many believe in unequal destiny but the Bible said that every child of God is destined for glorification. There is no child of God that has a greater salvation. We are all bought with the same blood; so, we are all men of equal destinies.

Acts 10:34 –Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

Refuse to compare yourself with others.

2 Cor.10:12 –For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

Comparison is an enemy of mental development. Don’t compare yourself with anyone; just do your own thing in your own way because no two people are ever alike. When you keep comparing yourself with some other person, it will kill your creative ability. Comparison will make you miss your own track; it kills potentials and creativity. Even your children, don’t compare them with any child; you don’t know where they are going to or where they will end.

Phil 3:13b -… forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

Finally, if you want to be creative, forget your past failures. A wise man said failure is an opportunity to start over more intelligently. When creative people fail, they don’t give up; they keep trying till they succeed.

God bless you
