Faith is the foundation of every part of Christian life by faith was saved. That’s how we came into this incredible family by faith, was sanctified by faith, was set in our place. And it’s also by faith that we flow in the unique anointing and gifting that the father has placed within us. And so faith and creativity go very much hand in hand in hand. Creativity and Christianity are absolutely connected in the most vital way. And and that’s why I believe that this coupling of Christ and creativity is such a supernaturally powerful Twyning.
Christians really should be. And we would expect them to be the most creative people on the planet. You know, Hebrews 11 verses one to three such beautiful verses as say now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen and continue through faith. We understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God so that things which were seen were not made of things which appear. So we’re taught here that faith sees the invisible and makes it visible.
What creativity does exactly that faith turns intangibles of hope into concrete results. Creativity does the same. We see something on the inside and we and then by by faith, we bring it to the table. Entrepreneurship works in the same way faith calls things that do not yet exist as though they already did. It conceives and reaches for them before the fact. So and creativity does the same. Romans, for 17 says God gives life to the dead and calls those things which are not as though they were.
You know, those ideas that are hidden in your heart, the entrepreneurial hopes that you harbour faith and creative action will bring them to the table in ways that are beyond your wildest dreams. It really does. And it takes faith to dream. It takes faith and courage to step up, to step out and let your voice be heard. But as soon as you do, wild possibilities open up the exercise of faith, the exercise of creativity and taking creative action is just such a door opener.
You know, Jesus is a partner in your creative projects, and thankfully he he has a rather extensive experience in both faith and creativity. And, you know, for me, this is one of the stones that we put in our sling. In fact, it’s the first stone, you know, the scripture says to us, seek first the kingdom of God, align your life with him and everything else will follow. Matthew six, verse 33. And when we step onto the field, you know, we want our identity to be shaped by the words of God, not by the words of man, not by our history and not by whatever doubt or insecurity might say.
We want to we want to close all of those other mouths and allow our father to declare identity over us, you know? And so when he says you are his workmanship, you say amen. When he declares that he’s prepared these wonderfully fruitful works for you to walk in, when he declares that you will prosper in all you’re put in, all that you put your hand to, you say, yes, yes, Lord, a man and a man.
You know, I think that humility is not denying God’s high word over your life and shuffling around on the planet. Playing small humility is accepting God at his word and acting and speaking accordingly. And so when we accept that we are covenant men and women created to create and bring Kingdom life to the earth, we will be able to staunchly look down in the eye, will be able to look that giant in the eye and ask why is the rest of the crowd so cowered by this uncircumcised philistine of fear and insecurity?
Truly with faith as your first stone in the sling, no giant can stand in your way. You, my dear brother, my sister, are destined to win. Well, thanks for listening. Hopefully.
