God distinctly declares that His ways are not our ways. He also declares that His ways are higher than our ways. (Isaiah 55:8-9) When I submit my will to His will, I die to my own ways and thus become able to follow His higher ways. This is where creativity starts! Instead of looking at problems from the same view as everyone else, it is now possible to see the same problem from a different perspective, God’s perspective. And what God does never returns void but instead brings accomplishment and prosperity. What better creativity could you have?!
I came across a good illustration of this concept not too long ago. For the Final Project of the Prizewinning Photography Continuing Education Course, I was assigned to take five pictures of one subject, three in color and two in black and white. It could be of anything. As I was thinking about it, the Rubik’s cube crossed my mind. At first, I dismissed the thought because surely it would be impossible to get five creative perspectives of it. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized it was a good idea. When I had taken the final five pictures, I was thinking that it would have been fun if I was assigned to take ten! It really is amazing the creativity you can have with such a simple object as the Rubik’s cube.
