Creative Bible Verse: Exodus 35: 31-33


Creative Bible Verse is a feature that explores the bible and what the Word has to say about creativity and our relationship with God.

and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze, in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, for work in every skilled craft.
Exodus 35:31-33

When Israel was commissioned by God to construct the Tabernacle, God filled men with the Spirit of God. The Spirit enabled the Israelites with the wisdom and creative ability to create a wonderful creation for the Lord.

Verse 32 shows God’s great gift of artistic ability: “to devise artistic designs…” In the same way today, God has gifted us with artistic ability, wisdom, and craftsmanship to create things that will help glorify Him, and help his church.

I forget regularly that my passion for design is a God given gift. My pride gets in the way of giving all the credit to my maker, my father. I continually need to be reminded that my gifts are God given, not man made. They should be used for more than just making money, or my selfish desires. My gifts should be used to give glory to God, from whom all blessings flow.

I am praying for your gifts, your talents, and your ministry today. If you have a specific need, please let me pray for you. Post in the comments!
