Brian Simmons began the session by asking this question: How do you tap into the realm of creativity? Here’s the on-ramp … it’s with dreams!

Brian acknowledged that he was speaking to prophetic dreamers on the call (Doug Addison’s Partners) and he mentioned that Doug is a premier dreamer and dream interpreter … and that Doug has constant revelation flowing into him through dreams. 

Next, Brian told the Partners to pay attention to this: God is the one who puts dreams in our spirit … and you will tap into the realm of creativity by your delights.

Ask yourself what you really want to do. If you follow your God-given passion, it’ll take you to the other side of the rainbow. 

If you delight in the word of God, the promises for you are success, prosperity and incredible fruit. 

Delight yourself in God and He’s going to delight in you. 

Brian said that he’s always had a delight in the Bible. He memorized the Book of Ephesians first, then John, Philippians, Romans and Hebrews. In the first two years of his salvation, he’d memorized seventeen books of the Bible … And he was totally burned out on LSD. The fact that he could even complete a sentence was a miracle! God had wired him for his translation work. He had the ability to memorize and put Scripture into his heart.

Brian added that he was legalistic and self-righteous. He needed to learn to love like every newlywed husband … But God turned his water into wine and the word became so rich and such a treasure to him! 

The discovery of your delight is a key—a master key to creativity—so don’t push it away. 

Some other notes from the session: 

 Our difficulties are gateways into creativity.

One of the most amazing discoveries Brian ever made as a Bible translator is about the word creativity. The Hebrew word for creativity is the same word as the Hebrew word for pain. Pain and creativity are linked in the spirit.

Some of the most creative masterpieces have come out of the most difficult traumas.

Your trauma is a gateway to creativity!

Brian emphasized that you’re not going to waste one tear or sorrow. 

God is not going to let you waste a time of grief, sorrow, pain, trauma, abuse, rejection, or manipulation … All the things that have come at you in this life that have marked you. God is not going to let any one of those things be wasted. 

Jesus is called the Redeemer and He’s going to redeem every trauma in your life and turn it into creativity if you will let Him!

What about the pain Jesus experienced? That birthed creativity! That birthed something! Blood and water came from His side. He gave birth to the heavenly through His pain.

The first mention of pain in the Bible is with Eve and childbirth. Isn’t it interesting that when moms give birth, they’re creating a life? They’re actually creating with God. When you give birth to a child, it all comes out of pain.

So, pain can be a fast track into the realm of creativity.
