You were born to create By Janet Grace Schier

You were born to create.

I would love to share with you today that I honestly believe that we were born to create. We are made in the image and likeness of God, and I would love to share, and for you to capture the heart of this verse: ‘God spoke:

“Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature…’” (Gen. 1:26a MSG).

We are born to create!

It continues,

“…so they can be responsible for the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, the earth, itself, every animal that moves on the face of the earth. God created human beings. He created them God-like, reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female…” (Gen. 1:26b-27 MSG).

Then he made this beautiful promise, and this is the bit I love, this is what really encourages me:

‘God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill the earth! Take charge!”’ (Gen. 1:28 MSG).

Wow! What an encouragement for those of us that are entrepreneurial, to have the blessing of heaven; to have the blessing of the God of the universe, to say he’s happy when we increase!

You know, in ‘Funding Our Future’, I’ve been passionate about doing just that; I’ve turned $80,000 into a multimillion dollar property portfolio, but one of the greatest things that needed to change was my thinking. We need money mindset movers.

Today, the first mindset move that I wanted to share and encourage you to grasp is that we were born to create; we are born to be creative. God loves it when we increase when we prosper, and when we get excited about what we’re doing, because we are on purpose when we’re doing that.

We are born to create.

Be encouraged to know that it thrills the heart of God when you prosper, increase, reproduce and fill the earth.

Create your very own opportunities.

Out of absolute financial desperation I began searching for answers. I needed more cash flow – much more! I prayed and asked God for an idea and then sowed a sum of money to our local church as a seed for my God-idea.

Within a few days a woman I was speaking with shared something that she and her husband were doing and instantly I thought, “this is my new idea!” was born! This business began from a painful lack of finance, but today is a thriving and successful business.

Why don’t you allow your need, want or desire to be the trigger for your new ‘creation’. Life is all about creating yourself and discovering new horizons in the process.

Stop resisting and start creating.


Today’s reading:

“Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Genesis 1:26-28 NKJV

Mindset to move: You were born to create.

Ask yourself: What am I passionate about creating?
