7 Biblical Scriptures To Encourage Artists…

These are 7 of my favorite scriptures that have been found to encourage Artists:
(From “Art Lessons From God!”)

Your talent (gift) opens doors of opportunity:

1. “A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men.”
Proverbs 18:16

Cultivate your talent (gift):

2. “Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.”
1 Timothy 4:14

3. “Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”
2 Timothy 1:6

4. “The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’
His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ “
Matthew 25:20, 21

5. “ ‘So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’
His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed?
Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.’ “
Matthew 25:25-27

God does not change His mind about giving you your gift:

6. “For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. (He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.)”
Romans 11:29 (Amplified Bible)

And Last, but not least-
God as an artist (the first 5 words of the bible):

7. “In the beginning God created…”
Genesis 1:1
