In a world where imagination knows no bounds, the idea that creativity and invention are limited to certain countries or races collapses under the weight of its own fallacy. Creativity and invention find fertile ground and sprout with equal potential in every corner of the world. This is due to the spiritual nature of creativity. Creativity, like any other spiritual gift or fruit, is available to all. Creativity is a state that anyone, at any age, can attain. It has nothing to do with the size of your wallet or your geographic location.
“Truly, I understand that God shows no partiality,” Apostle Peter said, “but in every nation, anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him” (Acts 10:34-35). God is the source of all knowledge, wisdom and creativity. Anyone that does the right thing can manifest any creative or spiritual gift. Because we are all made in the image of God, we all have some level of creativity. Anyone, regardless of their background, age, gender, race, or skin colour, can come up with world-changing ideas, creativity, scientific breakthroughs, technological inventions, or radical new economic policies.
Your talents and abilities are unique to you; they reflect an equally extraordinary God. Romans 12:6 is paraphrased as follows, “having gifts (faculties, talents, qualities) that differ according to the grace given us, let us use them: to those whose gift is invention, let them invent according to the proportion of their faith.” So, with prayers, meditation, and thanksgiving, you can begin to exercise your God-given creativity. Before you can create that technological idea in your head, it might take decades of education and planning. However, knowing that you have the ability to do it goes a long way.
