An anointed creativity is required for power in your life as an artist, author, graphic designer, musician, or any form of creative expression. It also applies to people called as craftsmen and craftswomen. Just like being born again is required for a new life in the Messiah, the power of the Holy Spirit is necessary for the creative anointing.
So, how does anointed creativity apply to my work?
It helped me a great deal since 1974—when I met Jesus. For you, that’s between you and the Lord. This page is the home page for my writings, articles, and whatever about what the Lord provides for creatives—people called to produce creative content in various forms. It makes no difference if you determined you were an artist, author, graphic designer, musician, or whatever. What matters is did the Lord create you for that purpose, and has He called you to use it in your life and ministry?
An anointed creativity is required for power as you create
Power to do what? That’s not my problem. The most common place I’d heard it in my work was in comments starting with, “How did you know…?”
Power in the Kingdom is not what people expect. Our power in the Spirit is for service. It’s the same power as is mentioned in Hebrews four. This power is alive, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Of course, that’s one of the basic attributes of the power of the Holy Spirit. He anoints us to minister, to serve people—like Jesus said, “I am among you as He who serves.” The best service we can provide is helping people come to know Jesus and make Him Lord over them. It’s the power to change lives. After you come to know the Lord for a long time, you will realize the basic truth. You can’t talk anyone into changing their mind about anything. You can’t bring anyone to salvation. You can’t fill them with the Holy Spirit.
Only the Lord Jesus can do that, by the power of His Spirit. All we can do is share what we’ve witnessed. The Holy Spirit can use that and convert it to a powerful message that will deeply touch your reader, viewer, and/or listener—to the point where that individual’s life is changed forever.
That’s the power I’m talking about.
