Instead of being an imitator of others, the person with vision should be an innovator. Innovation is the ability to be creative and to think outside the box. Our ability to innovate comes from the fact that we are made in the image and likeness of our Creator.
In light of the mind-set of the innovator, let’s look at some definitions of innovation. Innovation is the capacity to create new approaches and concepts to deal with both old and new challenges, the perceptiveness to see possibilities in the combination of old and new concepts, and the capacity to think beyond the known, defy the norm, and believe in one’s abilities to solve problems.
Father, You are the wondrous Creator who has given me the ability to innovate. Please help me to use my gifts with Your creativity. I want to fulfill my dream in a way that will be successful and creative and bring You honor. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thought: Innovation is the ability to be creative and to think outside the box.
