Who comes to mind whenever you think about a genius?
My Oxford English dictionary defines genius as: exceptionally great intellectual or creative power; a person with this.
Consider also the following definition:
A genius is a person who displays exceptional intellectual ability, creative productivity, universality in genres or originality, typically to a degree that is associated with the achievement of new advances in a domain of knowledge. […] …many geniuses have shown high achievements in only a single kind of activity.
The above extract taken from Wikipedia highlights the fact that usually, those considered to be a genius, have made their exceptional achievements in only one field of endeavour.
It set me thinking.
I know someone who’s a genius in many fields of endeavour and he’s very often the last person you might think of when you consider examples of those you’d describe as a genius. He is none other than God himself!
Yet in all reality, there is no one on earth who more deserves this title. For the Lord God Almighty, the creator of heaven and earth, has made all things well.
He created human beings. And you only have to consider the intricate workings of our brain and of our physical bodies to realise that our creator is a genius.
He made the universe. You don’t have to be an astronomer, or a student of cosmology to appreciate the amazing wonders of the galaxies.
Breath-taking landscapes, awe-inspiring seascapes and numerous riverscapes showcase another facet of our Father-God’s creative abilities, whilst the mind-boggling variety of animals and insects, fish and flora pay further homage to His awesome creative ability.
However, above all these wonders, is God’s amazing ability to transform hearts… to translate a soul from the sphere of darkness into His Kingdom of Light. No one else has that ability.
Now that is genius!
Today I want to pay tribute to the genius ability of my Father-God, the God of all gods, the High and Lofty One. I want to join my thoughts with the psalmist who said:
O Lord, what a variety you have made! And in wisdom you have made them all! The earth is full of your riches.
(Psalm 104:24 The Living Bible)
