God Creates

Thursdays - Devotions for Writers

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
(Genesis 1:1 NIV)

In the beginning, God created.

He created the heavens and the earth, the sky, the sea, vegetation, the animals, and the birds of the air.

He created a wonderful and beautiful world. Then He created man and woman and gave them this magnificent place to enjoy.

God creates.

Think about that simple statement.

Let it sink in.

God gets us, people!

He understands artistic people of all kinds – writers, painters, dancers, musicians. After all, we were made in His image.

Our heavenly Father understands our need to create, what excites us, and our desire to touch and motivate people.

As writers, if it were possible to sit at a table with our lattes and discuss our stories with Him—like we do with our critique groups—don’t you think He’d jump in with enthusiasm and give us ideas on plots and characterizations? Not to mention how to enhance the spiritual take-a-way!

Well, maybe we can do just that.

What’s stopping you from sitting down at your computer with your cup of coffee or tea and talking to Him right there? Get His input on what you’re supposed to write. He’ll let you know.

After all, He gets us!

I think I’ll go pour a cup of coffee now . . .
