So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Gen 1:27)
. . . for in the image of God He made man. (Gen 9:6b)
God created mankind in His own image. If we meditate upon this concept, it can be eye-opening for us.
One point I’d like to discuss here is that our God is a creative Being, and He has created us in His own likeness. Every single one of us has the capacity to be creative. What does that mean? It means that every human being has original talent and ability in unique areas and ways. Each and EVERY one of us has and does receive:
- Artistic thoughts/ideas
We’re not all called to be actors or musicians, but we may instead be called to be composers or designers. We may be a computer whiz whose creative ideas design new programs and software. Another person may be an interior designer, an engineer, or a gifted organizer with skill and talent in creating workable systems. There are as many ways to be creative as there are human beings on the face of the earth!
Don’t sell yourself short! Acknowledge that you have creativity within you. Think about what you most love to do, and where your talents and abilities lie. Then release yourself mentally to prosper in the occupation of your choosing!
God has blessed all of the work of our hands, minds, and hearts.
Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before unknown men. (Pro 22:29)
There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. (1 Cor 12:5-6)
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. (Jam 1:17) See our next article for part two of this topic.
