Want to know why are kids are not creative anymore? Think about the fact that we took out the idea of a Creator in science curriculums.
It’s my belief that the Word of God holds fascinating keys to the future we are looking for. But we have to first be willing to let go of paradigms that were created for a world that no longer exists.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
God is asking us to lean on His leadings and not on our understandings. We have to learn to trust in Him with our hearts not our minds. Within our minds is the process of reasoning and logic. But within our hearts are the genius of intuition & spiritual imagination. The heart is where REAL thinking exists. Solomon said “As a man thinks in his HEART, so is he.” The thinking that takes place in your heart is far greater than that within the mind. One of our greatest thinkers Albert Einstein once said “Logic will take you from A to B but imagination will take you everywhere else.” He was speaking about thinking from the heart.
God can lead us to discover great and wonderful things when we simply acknowledge Him as we do our thinking. We have to trust Him first. Trust is built through engagement, interaction, conversation, and pleasurable experiences. It builds over time as you see a person’s nature as dependable. I’ve shared in previous blogs how important it is to realize that The Presence of God is with us. Always remember that. Live aware of that. His Presence is a practical reality. He practically wants to guide us, practically want to teach us. It happens through reliance and complete dependency on Him not our understanding. Understanding is not as important as we think. We don’t believe because we understand. We understand because we believe. When you walk in the realm of mystery and trust, God will reveal things never seen before because of your faith in Him.
GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER
George Washington Carver is my example. Inventor of over 600 inventions & products, he integrated his faith in God into his passion for science. As heralded in wikipedia, He testified on many occasions that his faith in Jesus was the only mechanism by which he could effectively pursue and perform the art of science. “God is going to reveal to us things He never revealed before if we put our hands in His. No books ever go into my laboratory. The thing I am to do and the way of doing it is revealed to me. I never have to grope for methods. The method is revealed to me the moment I am inspired to create something new. Without God to draw aside the curtain I would be helpless.” This is real thinking. This is trusting in the Lord and not leaning on your own understanding. No previous books or methods. Just open for revelation & wisdom from above. This is a science. This is creativity at its best. I hope to inspire as many as I can to live from this place. But first, we must reshape our logic. FAITH is the new logic!
2013 YEAR OF SUPERNATURAL WISDOM
This being the year of supernatural wisdom, it is importunate that we gather around the notion that God is pouring out fresh and creative approaches to do life…New ways of thinking, seeing and creating. My heart is burning to learn the ways of Heaven and see them manifest hear on Earth to advance the Kingdom “on Earth as it is in Heaven.” I hold a worldview that all of life is orbiting around God, the creator of all. We are to go through life with our faith towards Him in all things, and receive His wisdom daily as it is outlined in creation itself and transcribed for us in His Word, the Bible. Creativity is a derivative of wisdom. Creativity is the ability to see new solutions to old problems. Now, the belief and acknowledgment of God has been removed from our current education system. We’ve reduced everything to the logic of reading, writing and arithmetic. The fear of God, pursuit of divinely revealed answers, moral values and character virtues no longer have equal value & appeal compared to logical assessment. This has become a serious flaw in our education system and is the reason why I’m hosting a 2 day conference tonight called “Reshaping Logic.” We must recapture the essence of true thinking, beginning with our faith, not our logic.
Be sure to check out our video talks in a few days. We’ll see what genius we walk out with this weekend!
