Creativity goes far beyond arts.

Creativity is the act of turning ideas into reality.

(for creative types…it’s the act of calling into being that which is not)

3 problems with creativity

1. It’s relegated to the arts…it’s meant for the Kingdom

2. We think creativity comes from ourselves…it really comes from God.

3. There’s a fear that limits all creativity…today you can overcome it.

We serve a Creative King….

Take a look at some of His creation.











This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image of the cluster Westerlund 2 and its surroundings has been released to celebrate Hubble’s 25th year in orbit and a quarter of a century of new discoveries, stunning images and outstanding science. The image’s central region, containing the star cluster, blends visible-light data taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys and near-infrared exposures taken by the Wide Field Camera 3. The surrounding region is composed of visible-light observations taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys.

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has revisited one of its most iconic and popular images: the Eagle Nebula’s Pillars of Creation. This image shows the pillars as seen in visible light, capturing the multi-coloured glow of gas clouds, wispy tendrils of dark cosmic dust, and the rust-coloured elephants’ trunks of the nebula’s famous pillars. The dust and gas in the pillars is seared by the intense radiation from young stars and eroded by strong winds from massive nearby stars. With these new images comes better contrast and a clearer view for astronomers to study how the structure of the pillars is changing over time.

This image of a pair of interacting galaxies called Arp 273 was released to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The distorted shape of the larger of the two galaxies shows signs of tidal interactions with the smaller of the two. It is thought that the smaller galaxy has actually passed through the larger one.

Problems with Creativity

1. Relegated to the arts.

Creativity is the act of turning ideas into reality.

Most creative people farmers.

2. Creativity comes from ourselves

Kingdom – Exodus 35:30–36:1 Bezalel

3. We fear the judgement of others.

How to overcome fear of judgement

1. Knowing the name can give you control.

Fear of judgement; fear of humiliation; NOT Fear of Failure

So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:31-32

Do I have a fear of other people judging me?

2. Knowing the source can give you power.

The judgement we fear from others is the judgement we make on ourselves. Being less judgmental of others frees us from fear of judgement in ourselves.

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.  For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged Matthew 7:1-2

Am I judgemental of others?

3. Knowing a  plan can give you hope.

Change your judgement to curiosity..

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—the moon and the stars you set in place—what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Psalm 8:3-4

Can I be more curious?

4. Knowing your fear can give you relief.

Face your fear incrementally.

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7

How can I face my fear of humiliation?

5. Knowing your King will give you freedom.

Creativity matters in the Kingdom.

The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the LORD will be exalted. Proverbs 29:25

When you recognize your King is responsible for your creativity, and you trust Him with it, you start to fear man less.
Are you trusting your King?
