Faith provides the foundation for vibrant Christian living. By faith we are saved, sanctified, and set in place. It is also by faith that we flow in the unique anointing our Father has placed upon us.
Faith and creativity go hand in hand.
Creativity and Christianity are connected.
This is why I believe that the coupling of Christ and Creativity is such a (super)natural twinning. Christians should be the most creative people on the planet!
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen… Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrews 11:1–3 KJV
Faith sees the invisible and makes it visible. Creativity does the same!
Faith turns the intangibles of hope into concrete results. Creativity does the same.
Faith calls things that do not yet exist as though they already did. It conceives and reaches for them before the fact. Creativity does the same.
“God gives life the dead and calls those things which be not as though they were.” Romans 4:17
Those ideas hidden in your heart. The entrepreneurial hopes you harbour. Faith and creative action will bring them to the table in ways beyond your wildest dreams.
And it takes faith to dream. It takes faith and courage to step up, step out and let your voice be heard. But as soon as you do wild possibilities open up.
Jesus is partner in your creative projects, and thankfully He has rather extensive experience in both faith and creativity.
This is the first stone.
As Scripture says, seek first the Kingdom of God, align your life with Him, and everything else will follow. (Matthew 6:33)
You step onto the field knowing who you are in Christ. Your identity is shaped by the Words of Heaven, not the words of men. When He says you are His workmanship you say, “amen”. When He declares that He has prepared works for you to walk and prosper in you say, “yes, Lord”.
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 accordingly.
When you accept that you are a covenant man or woman, created to create and bring Kingdom life to the earth, you will staunchly look doubt in the eye and ask why the rest of the crowd is so cowered by the “uncircumcised philistines” of fear and insecurity.
No giant can stand in your way.
You, my dear friend, are destined to win.
