Wisdom is Creative

Posted on June 13, 2012 by Family Christian There have been 0 comments

“‘The LORD brought me [wisdom] forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old...Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence” (Proverbs 8:22, 30).

 

Wisdom predates the creation. Like Jesus, it was with God from the beginning. Wisdom is the Lord’s instrument of creativity and beauty. It stands by His side as a craftsman ever ready to create for the cause of Christ. Indeed, it is from heavenly inspired wisdom that we experience creative earthly results. Wisdom longs for you to look for better ways to complement your calling, by prayerfully engaging the Lord’s limitless resources.

The creative energy of wisdom does not sit still but seeks out other meaningful methods and models. If how you did something in the past is not effective in the present, put it to rest and watch the Holy Spirit reengineer the effort. What will it take for you to let go of control and be creative? The best people leave entrenched environments lacking creativity; however, wise is the leader who invites innovation.

“He [the Lord] has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills—to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze” (Exodus 35:31–32).

Furthermore, there is a joy and an anticipation that accompany creativity. You feel fulfilled and significant when you create a product or process that achieves excellent results. Wisdom at work creates a system that rewards creative thinking around relationships and results. Remain creative and live; lose creativity and die. Indeed, intense adversity invites lavish creativity; so be wise, and use hard times to harness ingenuity. Challenge team members to create compelling content rich in substance, affordable in price, and easily accessible.

Above all else, tap into the wisdom and creativity of Christ. Eternity explodes in colorful creativity that birthed the universe. Go to Jesus and seek His mind for new and imaginative thinking. Prayer gives you permission to invent and innovate. Unleash wisdom and experience, the technicolor creativity of Christ. Partner with your Creator, and by faith and wisdom create for the cause of Christ.

“O LORD, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions” (Psalm 104:24 NASB).

Prayer: What do I need to stop doing by faith, being more creative with a new and more affordable model?
