A creative mind is everything you need to have. Without this, your life won't prove to have relevance.

 This is because every man's world begins from within him. And one of the purposes of this site: 

The Living Bread, is to Transform, Renew and Build the Minds of Souls, as well as maximize their potential for positive impact in life. 

As we continue our walk in Christ and to make heaven at last. 

The mind is something you must be mindful of if you must exploit it in life,

What Is A Creative Mind? 

A creative mind is like the soul, and no doubt this is the true one. It is the soul by which you discern something that is not already there in you.

But it cannot discern a thing in another soul that is not already there in it, even though the other soul may be in a different state of contemplation from you.

Why Is The Mind Important?

"Mind" and "brain" are often used interchangeably. While the mind is commonly believed to be a byproduct of brain activity, a growing body of evidence indicates that the brain is intimately involved in mental events.

We are aware of our thoughts and emotions, and we can remember them.
Our thoughts affect our feelings.
Our feelings influence our actions.
Our actions influence our perceptions.

In this regard, the mind seems to be an important component of brain activity.
Yet the precise connection between the two remains obscure.

How Can I Have A Creative Mind?

It is true that when you begin to let your mind be in the place that God wants you to be, creativity begins to flow. 

Unfortunately, it seems that in our day, the time we are on this earth, we are never really given the chance to live in that place. 

Our minds are constantly occupied by all of the things we see, the things we do, and the things we don’t do.

 The constant distractions and temptations keep us from being in that place that God has for us to be.

It is time to stop and realize that the “art of being creative” has little to do with our ability to be creative, but is an extension of what God created us to be.

It is time to stop being “creative” and to realize that God is creative and that He designed us to be creative too.

Therefore, our ability to be creative is not the purpose or goal of our time on this earth; rather, it is a tool that God has given us to be used to express His creativity and glorify Him.

If you are feeling frustrated and confused about how God wants you to be creative and what it means for you to be creative, then I believe that you have found the place where we can talk about these topics.

I will share some things that I have found, that God has been speaking to me about this topic and I believe that these points will be helpful to you as well.

The 7 Purpose For A Creative Mind In Christ

Here are the 10 Steps I have put together to help you to discover what it means for you to be creative and what that means for you to use the power of your mind to glorify God.

1. At New birth You Received The Mind Of Christ For Impact.

"A man having separated himself seeker and intermeddleth with all wisdom"-Proverbs 18:1

The creative mind is a nature that dwells in the son, when you received him, automatically your life becomes divine and his nature gets grafted in you.

So, as I have before, It is time to stop being “creative” and to realize that God is creative and that He designed us to be creative in His dear son Jesus.

2.  God is the creator and we are created in His image (Gen 1:26-28)

Creativity is a trait God gave to us as a result of our being made in His image.

God is not creative. He created everything. We were created to be creative, His creativity. As a result of our being created in His image, we are in God’s image and therefore, we have the same abilities that He does.

3. To be creative means to be purposeful and to make things glorify God.

When we talk about being creative, we are talking about things that we make; but there is a purpose for everything that we make.

 Everything we make should be made to glorify God in whatever it is that we make. 

As the writer of Proverbs said, “what the eyes see the heart knows.”

“The whole creation has been groaning in labor and waiting anxiously for the redemption of God’s people. 

It was for the man himself who was to bring us this wealth, for the woman who was to be the helpmeet, for the man to rule over the woman, and for the glory and praise of the man to shine out in a godly way as the children of God.”,-

Romans 8:22-23

So the purpose of everything we make is to help us to bring glory to God, for nothing made is without its Creator. (1 Cor.11:11)

To truly be creative, we need to understand what our purpose in life is.

4. The purpose of our lives is to bring glory to God.

The purpose of your life is to bring God glory and to be His people. 

The purpose of our lives is to give Him glory in everything we do, for He is the One who does all things.

“God is not the author of confusion but peace, as in all the churches of the saints. Let your mind be in the state of Christ Jesus.” - Ephesians 4:3-4

The purpose of your life is not to be entertained, it is not to have fun, or to “get away from it all.”

“Therefore, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.” - 2 Corinthians 5:17

The purpose of your life is not to experience life as you would like it to be, it is to experience life as God would have you experience it.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” -Proverbs 9:10

The purpose of your life is to live it so that you can be a blessing to those around you. 

The purpose of your life is to make a difference in the lives of those around you.

“…I have learned the secret of being content in every situation, whether it is to be filled to the full or hungry to the point of bursting. I’ve learned the secret of being content in every situation, whether I am surrounded by a crowd of people or alone. I’ve learned the secret of being happy no matter what happens. And, the secret of being peaceful, regardless of what I have to face. No matter what is on the outside, I’ve learned how to handle it and I can face anything that comes my way.”- Philippians 4:10-13

5. Being creative means thinking from a place of gratitude.

Your mind can only function well if it is in a place of gratitude. As a result of being grateful, it is easy to think clearly and stay focused on the things that you should be focusing on.

“I count everything as loss because of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.”- Philippians 3:8.

6. Being creative means using what you have with purpose.

As a result of being grateful for the things that you have, it is easy to use them with purpose. 

That is, you use them to help others who are not as blessed as you are.

 The things you have can be used for a lot of things, including getting closer to God.

“My dear brothers and sisters, consider carefully what you intend to do with your lives.”-Philippians 1:12

The “power of positive thinking” and having a “grateful heart” are very important to a person’s ability to be creative.

7. Creative means to use all of your thoughts.

God made us with a lot of ability, but He also gave us very little time to do the things that He created us to do. 

Therefore, God gave us everything that He created us to do. However, when God says that He created everything, He also says that He put a man in charge of everything.

“The days will come upon you when your enemies will make huts, like the wild animals of the field, to capture you. Then you will go out with your hands empty, and your pursuers will give you credit for nothing. You will flee as you fled from the city; you will not succeed in escaping. The LORD will chase after you; he will not let you escape.”-Deuteronomy 28:54-56

So we need to learn to use all of our thoughts. God gave us a mind, but He gave us a very limited amount of time with which to use it. 

We need to use our time and ability to think with purpose and use every thought for the glory of God.


FATHER IJN: I thank you for the revelation of your word. Sing some songs to God.

FATHER IJN: Cause me to be like you, make more creative and impactful.

FATHER, IJN: I resist all mediocre mindsets and I declare that I have the mind of Christ.

FATHER, IJN: By the blood of Jesus I sanctify my soul, with the creative word of God.


For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ. -1 Corinthians 2:16


3 John 1:2, Eph3:20, Rom 12:1-2, Prov. 4:23,Eph 1:17-18


"The eternal wisdom of God ... has shown itself forth in all things, but chiefly in the mind of man, and most of all in Jesus Christ."


Now that you have been born of God, only seek, read and meditate on the word, this is how the mind of a believer is transformed and formed to see and think as God.
