Our God - The Artist

The Lord is the Consummate Artist: 

He is a sculptor and potter who made his own clay and a painter who created all the colors  (Genesis 1-2; Jeremiah 18:1-6).

He is a musician who formed every sound and gave ears to hear with, a dancer, and singer  (Zephaniah 3:17; Revelation 1:10). Everything He created sings back to Him.

He is a poet – look at the beautiful poetry which He recites to Job (Job 38-41)...and even His creation is an expression worthy of a poem.

He is a writer who has written the greatest best-seller of all time—the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16). 

He is a story-teller and actor: Jesus used parables in the Gospels to convey mysteries, and His prophets used dramatic arts to convey God’s words (Matthew 13:34; Hosea 12:10).

He is an architect of mountains and sky (Psalm 90:2; Isaiah 44:24).

He is a Tailor - a worker of needle and thread. He has woven a garment of light for himself (Psalm 104:2) and has provided a golden wedding garment for his bride (Psalm 45:9, 13-14). He has clothed the lilies with beauty (Matt. 6:25-34)

He is a creator of culinary delights - the earth overflows with His bountiful provisions (Exodus 16:31; Numbers 11:7-8; Psalm 34:8; 119:103; Song of Solomon 2:3).  

He is a perfumer, and even His name is a healing ointment that smells Divine (Psalm 45:8; Song of Solomon 1:3; 3:6; 5:1; 5:13)

In all of these, He is without compare. There is none who can match His artistry, excellence, and genius.
