Now, That's Creativity

I am always impressed with the ability of crafters to make something beautiful and/or useful out of almost nothing. A couple of women in the church I am serving as interim pastor do amazing things with gourds. But I have yet to meet anyone who can make something beautiful and useful out of nothing. Only God can do that!

He created everything out of nothing (ex nihilo). He commanded, “Let there be . . . .” and all nature sprang to life. If the most creative person on earth wants to see how his creativity compares with God’s creativity, let him try to speak something into existence.

God’s creativity is astounding and extremely diverse. We see His creative intelligence and artistry all around us. He created both the humpback whale and the hummingbird, the stars ands the starfish, the mountains and the moose, the peacock and the pheasant—and yes, you and me!

How should we respond to our Creator? Revelation 4:11 answers this question. “You are worthy, O Lord to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.”
