Releasing God’s Creative Ability



Pastor Doug’s Notes – Wednesday Night Refreshing January 20, 2016


  1. Words are creative containers that cause things to exist & manifest.
    1. Just as God used words to create, so you & I use words to create.
    2. Positive words produce positive results. Negative words produce negative results.


  1. To create like Jesus created, Speak like He speaks. Use words that He uses.
  • Use God’s words – speak what He says; righteous words; faithful words; steadfast words; gracious words; words based in God’s authority; Spiritual & life-giving words; wholesome words


  1. Holy Spirit is waiting for you to speak God’s words so He can bring them to pass.
  • Gen 1:2 The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters. AMP
  • 2 Cor 4:13-14 The Spirit of faith believing & speaking based on what is written in Scriptures
  • Faith is believing, resting, knowing, being confident in and being fully persuaded that God’s word is the reality.


  1. Creation is a process of speaking God’s words, believing what He said & resting in it.
  • Gen 2:3-4 On the seventh day God rested from all His work which God created & made.
  • Heb 4:2 Mix faith with what you hear; 2 Cor 4:13-14 Believe & speak; Rom 10:8-11 Heart & mouth


  1. Everything created has a spiritual side & a natural side.
  • Gen 1:1 God created the heaven & the earth.
  • Col 1:16-17 By Him all things were created that are in heaven & that are on earth, visible & invisible; thrones; dominions; principalities; powers. All things were created through Him…
  • Rom 1:20 His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. NKJV


  1. Things that are created follow after a pattern & image.     What image are you using to create what you want to happen, what you want to have or what you want to exist?
  • Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; KJV
  • Gen 1:27 God patterned them after himself; male and female he created them. NLT
  • Gen 1:27 So God created human beings, making them to be like Himself. TEV
  • Gen 1:27 God prepareth the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, YLT
  • Heb 6:13-14 For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself
  • Use the right Image – Ex 20:4-5 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image — any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God. NKJV Lev 26:1; Deut 4:16-20;
  • Rom 8:28-30 Be conformed to the image of His Son,
  • 2 Cor 3:18 We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.


  1. God Creates Good Things
  • Ps 51:10 God creates clean hearts and right, persevering, steadfast spirits. AMP
  • Create – OT:1254 bara’ (baw-raw’); a primitive root; (absolutely) to create; (qualified) to cut down (a wood), select, feed (as formative processes): –choose, create (creator), cut down, dispatch, do, make (fat).

  1. Creativity increases through the seed.
  • Seed creates futures & sustains generations.
  • Gen 8:22 Seedtime & harvest will remain as long the earth remains.
  • 2 Cor 9:10 God gives seed to sower.


  • Seed – NT:4685 spao (spah’-o); a primary verb; to draw: KJV – draw (out). NT:4703 sporos (spro’-os); from NT:4687; a scattering (of seed), i.e. (concretely) seed (as sown): KJV – seed (X sown).           NT:4687 speiro (spi’-ro); probably strengthened from NT:4685 (through the idea of extending); to scatter, i.e. sow (literally or figuratively): KJV – sow (-er), receive seed.

(Biblesoft’s New Exhaustive Strong’s Numbers and Concordance)

  • Gen 47:23-24 Joseph gave people seed. Out of the increase, they were to give Pharaoh 1/5
  • Gen 1:11 God created plants yielding seed & fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. It was so. (Gen 1:29 Seed-bearing; Gal 3:16 Abraham’s seed; Eccl 11:6; Mk 4; 1 Pe 1:21 God’s word a seed;


  1. He creates covenants & makes promises
  • Ex 34:10 Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the LORD. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you. NKJV


  1. God Creates New Things
  • Num 16:30 But if the LORD creates a new thing, & the earth opens its mouth & swallows them up with all that belongs to them, & they go down alive into the pit, then you will understand that these men have rejected the LORD.” NKJV
  • Isa 65:17-18 “For behold, I create new heavens & a new earth; The former things will not be remembered or come to mind. 18 “But be glad & rejoice forever in what I create; For behold, I create Jerusalem for rejoicing & her people for gladness. NASU


  1. God Creates New Things
  • Num 16:30 God creates new things; Isa 65:17-18 He creates new heavens & earth. Isa 66:22; 2 Pet 3:13; Rev 21:1 No more sea;
