Hi there, My name is John Garfield. Welcome to God Today. I want to talk to you for two minutes about creativity. How can we experience permission to be creative and innovative and have the courage to try new things without a fear of failure? I’ve worked in a corporate world as an engineer. And I’ve had the opportunity to work with senior level managers who have, sometimes, 100s of people working for them and 10s of millions of dollars decisions facing them. I’ve seen them in predicaments where they are just failing. One thing that I’ve realized is that people that are able to do great things like that never quit, never give up. They believe there is always a way out, a way to solve a problem. That’s the dimension, the spirit of excellence that we should carry as Christians.
Listen to Proverbs 25:2, “It’s the glory of God to conceal a matter, to search out a matter is the glory of kings”. That’s the anointing that you and I carry. When Jesus is in our hearts there is always an answer and our job is to find it. There is always a solution no matter what challenge what obstacle, what problem, what setback we face. God has an answer and we as kings can find it.
The spirit of excellence has shown us in people who always have this belief that we can find a way through this forest, that God has an answer. Listen to Daniel 6:3, “Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps because an excellent spirit was in him and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm”. So there’s a dimension of promotion that God wants to put on His people.
So, Father, I’m releasing a spirit of creativity, I’m releasing a dynamic in which, Father, we can find answers, we can find creative solutions to problems that have never been solved before. In the name of Jesus, release creativity, release initiative, release boldness upon your people to do exploits. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
