O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. Psalm 104:24
Everything God created, He created them in wisdom. There can be no success exploits where there is no wisdom and creativity. The earth was created with wisdom and that same divine wisdom is available to us today. No child of God should do any less. “I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.” (Psalm 9:1).
We were created in God’s image to reproduce His creative exploits for the benefit of our generation. By salvation, we have Jesus’ mind of excellence and creativity. “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature” (1 Peter 4:1). God’s nature of creativity and excellence is inside every believer.
Creative work is:
- Diligent work: Work done with persistent tireless effort. To be diligent is to be hardworking. “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” (Proverbs 22:29).
- Detailed work: Where you put in painstaking care about details.
The difference between the ordinary worker and the exceptional worker is their eyes for details. Many times, greatness is in the attention you pay to details.
Prayer focus: Help me to strive for excellence in my work, give me the grace to be creative in my work.
Study focus: Psalm 104:24, Genesis 1:31
