God is Creator _ (Attributes of God)

8 ABC’s of God: Creator

Creator: one that creates; a person who grows or makes or invents things

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Psalm 33:6 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host.
Zechariah 12:1 Thus declares the LORD, who stretched out the heavens and founded the earth and formed the spirit of man within him.

John 1:3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him.
Hebrews 1:2 He has spoken to us by his Son,... through whom also he created the world.

I see the Lord’s creation constantly, everywhere. And I see the imagery of his creativity in my own soul and through the hands of others. The innate desire to create, using the things he created for us, is breathed into us by his Spirit.

A most beautiful and miraculous example of creativity is the creation of a new person from a man and a woman. Only from the hand of God can such a magnificent creation occur. We are all breathing testimonies to God’s creativity.

Is our largest sin related to creativity our eagerness to take credit for it? Our pride over what WE create as our own, instead of reflecting the glory back to you? What do we create totally from scratch? Absolutely nothing. Herod died (Acts 12:23) because he did not give the glory back to you; please remove the pride of self-glory from our character, a trait in total opposition to your attribute of Creator.

Or is the larger sin in not recognizing that we are the created ones (Isaiah 45:9) and you are the uncreated one? Because you are our creator and sustainer, we live solely at your mercy—but there is no safer place to be.

I praise you for being THE Creator of all things. Your work is evident in every sight I see, every sound I hear, every bite I taste, every smell I smell, every texture I touch. You are behind it all.

Let the physical things you created point me to the spiritual things, to your eternal power and divine nature (Romans 1:20). Because of you, I am a new creation in an invisible realm in an everlasting kingdom (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Colossians 1:16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things were created through him and for him.
