When you are in the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative, inventive, original it’s called having INSPIRATION.
But do you know why it’s called INSPIRATION?
Synonyms of INSPIRATION ARE: creativity, inventiveness, innovation ingenuity, genius, imagination and originality… Another definition of INSPIRATION is: drawing in of breath; inhalation.
Genesis 2:7 says, “Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
God had an inspiration that was moved by His great love… an inspiration to create a being similar to Himself so that He can share His great love with us (His children). I like to compare this affection much like the love of a husband and a wife who create a child in their own image. The Bible says in Genesis 1:27 “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.”
And so, our Creator breathed into our nostrils and as we inspired His Spirit we became a living being…
Since we too are made in Gods image we too are creators and we have our own inspirations… moments like our Creator where we breath life into a project, moments where we breath life into a situation, moments where we are able to create something with so much imagination and ingenuity!
Practically speaking: Just like our Heavenly Father we should go to lifeless places and breathe life into them! That is exactly what happened to the prophet Ezekiel. Ezekiel stood before a large grave site in the desert. It was a lifeless place that was full of dead bones.
Ezekiel 37:3- He (God) asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”
4Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make BREATH enter you, and you will come to life.
Are you stuck somewhere? don’t know what to do or where to go? Pray to God and know that you are His child. You are His very own creation created to do amazingly good works.
Psalm 100:3 says “Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.” Therefore, once we acknowledge God as our Creator and we realize that we are His children – there is no situation great or small that we can not over come! Think about the word impossible; the very word impossible says I’M POSSIBLE and remember always that you have been equipped with the same Spirit of the living God. The One who came down from heaven to overcome all impossibilities (even death) to save us.
