What is wisdom and what role does it play in creativity? In Proverbs 8:30 we find this answer, “Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman and I was daily His delight.”
Wisdom was in creation with God. And God created the heavens and the earth with wisdom. Everything we see in the earth and in the heavens was created by the wisdom of God. God is creator.God is wise. We were created in the image of God. We create. We are wise.
Creativity is the breath of wisdom. It is the energy of wisdom. It is the fruit of wisdom.
These are the six things we receive from wisdom that is recorded in Proverbs 8.
1. Excellent things, verse 6. In wisdom we find seeds to plant for the future. These seeds are ideas. When the seeds grow they become our harvest, our prosperity. Excellent things are created from wisdom. Excellent things open doors to an excellent life.
2. Instruction and knowledge, verse 10. Wisdom is our teacher. When we abide with her she teaches us and her school never ends. There is an unceasing flow from her reservoir into our heart.
3. Riches and honor, verse 18. Wisdom gives us the ideas that creates riches for our life. When we gain riches by wisdom what comes into our hands stays in your hand. Honor is the glory that is linked to riches. Riches increases our net worth. Honor increases our self-worth.
4. Revenue, verse 19. Wisdom opens our mind to create many streams in our life. Those streams becomes many places of income. Wisdom shows us how to send out what we create to receive a return.
5. Inheritance, verse 21. Wisdom has an inheritance for us. It is life abundantly. It is the path to your destiny. It is the identity that declares our purpose.
6. Favor, verse 35. Wisdom brings favor into our lives. Favor is a mindset that believes the impossible can happen. It is the path to greater things. Favor connects us with kings and increases influence in our lives.
So wisdom says seeks me at the gates. Where you find wisdom is where you find creativity.
