Bezalel: Exploring Your Creative Calling

The First to Be Filled


Who do you think of when you think of someone who is “filled with the Spirit”? Maybe it’s an Old Testament Prophet or a New Testament Apostle. Maybe it’s a pastor or a worship leader or even yourself. For thousands of years, God has been equipping His people with His Spirit, to serve what Paul calls the “common good”. Their gifts range from preaching to prophesying, singing to writing. Something (or Someone) is breathed into them and they just can’t help but breathe Him out.


You’ve been given talents and abilities, and you might have even, using the knowledge you’ve been given, sharpened them into skills. God gave you those talents for a reason, and He’s called you to partner with the Holy Spirit living inside of you and use them to birth something new on Earth.

It’s interesting to note that Bezalel was the first person in all of history to be characterized as “Filled with the Spirit”. God was establishing a precedent through Bezalel, a baseline that the rest of history would respond to. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit was never meant to be reserved for prophets and ministers; it’s intended for creatives and craftsmen and entrepreneurs, too. When God promised a full outpouring of His Holy Spirit, He didn’t say it would fall on “Some Flesh” or “Only the Flesh in Full Time Ministry.” He said The Holy Spirit would fall on all flesh.


You’ve been given talents and abilities, and you might have even, using the knowledge you’ve been given, sharpened them into skills. God gave you those talents for a reason, and He’s called you to partner with the Holy Spirit living inside of you and use them to birth something new on Earth.


Take a moment today to ask Jesus how you can employ the talents and skills you’ve been given. Spend time creating with the Holy Spirit—keeping in constant dialogue with Him as you practice the talents you’ve been given. Learn to live as an artist whose first qualification is his relationship with The Holy Spirit, and watch how He unlocks the skills in you waiting to be unleashed.
