God is very creative! We see this in the first scripture of the Bible where Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (NIV)
In Acts chapters one and two, we see the Holy Spirit come upon the disciples and they go out into the world. People who witnessed this were shocked and amazed (see Acts 2:12). This is because the power of the Holy Spirit was residing in the disciples. The actual Greek word is “Dynamis (G1410),” which means, “power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature.” We have that same power residing in us because, as Christians, the Holy Spirit resides in us (see Romans 8:11).
In a more practical way, we see God enable His people in Exodus 35 to be artistic in designing and building things. Maybe you have a talent or ability and God wants to use you to bless others with that!
All this month, I want to encourage you to pray for God’s power to guide you and for you to try using your talents for God. If you don’t practice using your talents, you’ll never know what you can or cannot do! I believe that, when others see us doing it, they will be inspired too. It’s easy to be used by God because He wants it more than we do!
