Topic: Be Creative [Teens Open Heavens 17, April 2018]

Memorise: So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. Genesis 1:27

Read: Exodus 35:31 (KJV)

31 And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

Bible In One Year: 1 Samuel 22-24, Luke 16:1-18

MESSAGE:

Being creative means to use your imagination to generate an original idea. To be creative means to do something that you have not seen anywhere else before. God made us in His image, and our God is very creative. The whole world as you see it is God’s creative idea. All the animals in their different forms, the diverse kinds of trees, the mountains, the human beings and everything you see in nature was creatively done by God. If your Father is so creative, and you were made in His image, then you have the innate ability to create new things too. The way to unleash the creative abilities in us is to use our imaginations often. For everything you do, always think of a new and better way to do it. Task your brain to develop new ideas and you will be surprised to see how creative you are.

As a child of God, you should be the most creative person around. God still has lots of creative ideas, He will release these ideas to you. I get a lot of creative ideas from God regularly, and that has made me stand out amongst my colleagues. Link up with God for creative ideas and you will begin to stand out among your peers.

Action Point: Make it a habit to regularly task your brain for creative ideas.

Hymn 6:

1. Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home:

2. Under the shadow of your throne
Your saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is your arm alone,
And our defense is sure

3. Before the hills in order stood
Or earth received its frame,
From everlasting you are God,
To endless years the same.

4. A thousand ages in your sight
Are like an evening gone
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

5. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
Soon bears us all away;
We fly forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the opening day.

6. Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Still be our guard while troubles last,
And our eternal home!
