Isaac Newton stands out in history as a genius. He discovered gravity, the refraction of light through a prism, invented calculus, made the first reflecting telescope, created an alloy for the Royal mint which now shapes how coins are made around the world. All of his main work was done in the late 1600’s, no internet, no computers, no television. Newton was humble enough to say in 1675, ‘If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants’, crediting the great thinkers who had gone before.

Philippians 4:13 suggests there is a lot more potential within us than we probably realise. ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ Paul writes.

Believe that the fullness of the creativity of God within you can be released, and that you can do it, you will get there, you will make a difference in Jesus mighty name.


Let the creativity of God within you be fully released, in Jesus name.


Lord, I pray that you release my potential and creativity, in my family life, my work life and my spiritual life, in Jesus name.

Action Point

Have you ever thought to draw a picture of how you feel about God, you salvation, your walk with Him, try draw something to reflect who He is.
