The Innovative Edge
"I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions." Proverbs 8:12, KJV
I love that God is the ultimate innovator! He is the most creative One – the Creator! When we tap into His wisdom, He fills us with the knowledge of creative, innovative, witty inventions. Let's definitely "get a grip" on this truth!
What does that mean for you today? It means that the Lord can you give you a witty idea – His knowledge and wisdom – that will change your day… your family… your finances… or your city! Witty inventions include… new plans, insights, ideas, methods, plots, devices and strategies!
The Bible is full of people who tapped into God's witty, creative power. In the Old Testament, there is a story about a creative leader, Uzziah. He led a team of inventors, engineers and fabricators to develop never-before-seen engines and military machinery. It was a witty invention. He was way before his time! God called and filled an artistic craftsman named Bezaleel with the Spirit and he devised furniture and numerous materials for God's purposes. Others were called to invent, discover, create and design buildings, cities, businesses, utensils, fabrics and even perfumes!
I once worked for a surgeon who knew how to listen to the creative leading of the Spirit and he was used to invent hundreds of medical instruments and he discovered dozens of surgical procedures in orthopedic and arthroscopic surgery. His medical innovations have helped thousands of people.
So, in what "witty" ways does God want to use you? Everything has NOT already been discovered, created, developed, invented or created. I believe God wants to empower His children to be creative leaders in innovation, discovery, technology, medicine, ministry and more… all for His purposes! Today, listen to the Lord and see what creative, innovative ideas He plants in your heart and mind.
Say This: "Father, You are the Creator of the ends of the Earth – the most creative, innovative Person in all of eternity. Today, I thank You for Your knowledge, wisdom, plans, insights, ideas, methods, plots, devices and strategies. Help me to devise witty inventions – in my home, business and ministry – that will further Your purposes. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
