“Observe people who are good at their work — skilled workers are always in demand and admired; they don’t take a back seat to anyone.” (Proverbs 22:29, The Message)

Creativity: the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination:

Imagination: the faculty of imagining, or of forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses.

God is releasing a very strong creative gifting and imagination in this time. Creativity and imagination are very similar in some ways but in other ways they are two different things. Sometimes a person with an imagination can dream up ideas but they don’t always have that creative edge to them to be able to bring the imagination to life. It takes creativity to bring their thoughts and ideas into completeness.

I believe what God is doing is releasing creativity in some people and imagination in others and it’s going to create a coming together of gifts with the Body of Christ that will cause an advancement in The Church.

For example, my wife and I are dreamers, we are visionaries. I can imagine a lot of things but sometimes lack the creativity to make it come to pass. This is where my wife comes in, she has an imagination but she also has a creative gift where she can put legs to an idea. She has the ability to take a thought or an idea and say, “What if we did this?” She can bring vision to a thought.

I believe God is going to begin to partner you up with people like this. He’s going to partner ministries and church’s where one has an imagination and another knows how to make it happen and God’s going to use this to reach communities, regions, counties, state’s, and a nation.

Some of you have had pages of ideas and imagination but have not known how to make them happen. God is going to send people in your path that will come alongside you to help in this area.

For some of you, God is reopening this well of creativity and imagination that has run dry in your life. You’re going to start dreaming again, you’re going to start imagining again, and you’re going to start creating again.

Open up your heart, open up your mind, creativity and imagination is being released.
