Creativity

Psalm 19:1

Throughout the Bible we are given beautiful descriptions of a river with fruitful trees growing along the banks of it. This picture of God’s creation is also a beautiful description of our relationship with Jesus.

Jesus is that river. He is our source of life. The fruitful trees are us, followers of Christ. We gain life and strength because our roots are connected to Him. To know that Jesus, the River of Life, is supplying our need for survival is humbling. Rooted in Him we can be found not only living but growing and producing fruit. He is the Giver of Life and we are the recipients, flourishing under His care.

If we have a desire to see God in His creations then we can learn so much about ourselves and The Creator. We will find ourselves drawing closer to Him, in awe of the beauty and symbolisms of His creativity.

Walking With The Creator

Isaiah 43:1-7

Paul was shipwrecked. Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego were thrown into a fiery furnace. The list of God’s people that dealt with hard situations goes on.

Paul reached land unharmed. Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego didn’t have a hair on their head singed. God’s grace, strength and presence are evident in His children’s lives.

These people of God faced terribly frightening circumstances. They had no idea what the outcome would be. Yet they chose to walk through it because they knew who would be walking with them.

God was by their side. Just as He is for you. When you accepted His gift of salvation you welcomed His presence into your life. Being a follower of Christ doesn’t mean that you become exempt from life’s trials. Being a follower of Christ means that you will have Jesus to walk through those trials with you.

He has created you for His glory. Glorify Him in whatever situation you might face.
