” When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing?”
– Mark 6:2
Not too long ago, I watched an amazing documentary on the latest in prosthetic (artificial limb) technology. Watching it, I wondered how much innovation is constantly taking place in various fields in the developed nations of the earth…and then I began to think…what new thing have I done?
What innovation has the Lord introduced to my community through me?
Isn’t it amazing how Christians could sometimes dismiss innovations and accomplishments of “unbelievers” as “satanic” and yet largely remain unproductive and constantly critical of everything that everyone else does?
Noah introduced ship building technology, Moses brought the Laws, Abraham showed the path to prosperity, David, military excellence, Solomon innovatively managed and multiplied wealth. God’s word declares in Isaiah 43:19-See, I am doing a new thing... meaning that without any doubt, God is still doing new amazing things.
The question is this…why isn’t He doing them through many of us?
There is a type of person that God will use to express His creativity. You must decide to be a change agent on earth. if you will obey God and “take dominion, subduing the earth…(Genesis 1:28)” as commanded by God then you must “Study to shew (ourselves) approved…( 2 Timothy 2:15).
Dig deep into your field of calling and interest. Prayerfully ask God to do a new thing through you in there. Only then will you have a similar testimony as Jesus.
In Jesus Name I declare I am a change agent on earth. I grow myself beyond average. I diligently put to use my creativity to bring innovative solutions to the earth and glory and honor to God. Amen.
