“Imagination is a gift from God and the use of imagination to produce is guided by the Spirit.” – Dylesia Barner
Whatever the Spirit guides us to produce is designed to lead others to God as the beauty and creativity of it will always prove His existence – (man can create nothing apart from God, so the fact that man continues to create proves that God continues to exist). Our purpose is to tap into our holy creativities and produce in a way that reveals that He is alive and residing on the inside of us. While production can be of artifacts (objects of societal/cultural significance – i.e. drawings, paintings, pottery, clothing, tools, convenience products, etc.), it can also be of self (i.e. poetry, books, music, etc.), of character (charitable giving, philanthropic service, integrity, love, joy, peace, patience, acts of faith & the subsequent courage to testify, etc.), and of intelligence (business, leadership, policy development, innovation, scientific discovery, etc.). Today, allow yourself to daydream. Ponder what the Spirit has given you the imagination to produce and honestly assess whether you’re producing it. Tapping into your creative functions should be something you do regularly and unapologetically, because doing so allows you to walk into your supreme calling to be undeniable evidence that He exists.
