‘When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing’
– Mark 6:2

Robotics, machine learning, big data, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality, are some of the new frontiers technology is exploring as boundaries of knowledge keep expanding every day.
Watching technology evolve over the years, I wondered how much innovation is constantly taking place in various fields in the developed nations of the earth…and then I began to think…what new thing have I done?
What innovation has the Lord introduced to my community through me?
Isn’t it amazing how some Christians could sometimes dismiss innovations and accomplishments of “unbelievers” as “satanic” and yet largely remain unproductive and constantly critical of everything new that everyone else does?
Noah introduced ship-building technology, Moses brought the Laws on tablets of stones, Abraham showed the path to prosperity with well-in-the-desert solutions, David, military excellence, and Solomon innovatively managed and multiplied wealth.
Romans 12:2 says Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Renew and innovation are similar words.
God’s word declares in Isaiah 43:19-See, I am doing a new thing… meaning that without any doubt, God is still doing new amazing things.
The question is this…why isn’t He doing them through many of us?
There is a type of person that God will use to express His creativity. You must decide to be a change agent on Earth.
If you will obey God and “take dominion, subduing the earth…(Genesis 1:28)” as commanded by God then you must “Study to show (ourself) approved…( 2 Timothy 2:15) and ‘renew your mind..’ (Romans 12:2)
Dig deep into your field of calling and interest. Reflect, Rethink, Reimagine, and Ask Questions. Prayerfully ask God to do a new thing through you in there. Only then will you have a similar testimony as Jesus Christ, one full of the Spirit of innovation.
LET US PRAY:
In Jesus’ Name, I declare I am a change agent on earth. I grow myself beyond average. I diligently put to use my creativity to bring innovative solutions to the earth, and glory and honor to God.
I renew my mind daily. Behold old things are passed away and all things are new in my life.
Dear Heavenly Father, do something new in my life, with my life, and through my life.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
