Genesis 28:14 Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. Good ideas come from God, so ask Him for one. The world’s been blessed by those who did.

Here are examples of people who asked for ideas and God gave them: A Scottish doctor named James Young Simpson introduced something he called ‘artificial sleep’. As a student @ Edinburgh University he was attracted to surgery because he was troubled by the pain & mortality rate experienced during operations. As a result of reading ‘And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam..’ (Genesis 2:21 NKJV), Simpson thought chloroform might be the answer. He first experimented on himself. Finally in 1847, the first three operations with chloroform took place. One of the patient a young soldier, enjoyed it so much that he seized the sponge and inhaled again. ‘It was just too good to be stopped,’ he said. Simpson encountered opposition, some thought it was a sin to interfere with nature. ‘Hand me the bible,’ said Simpson. ‘This is how God operated on Adam’. He made speeches, wrote letters and pamphlets & tried to convince those who opposed him that this was the way forward. The tide turned when Queen Victoria gave birth to her eighth child under chloroform and declared that she was ‘greatly pleases with its effect’. So ask God to give you an idea that will bless others then act on it.  

One God-given idea can change so much. In 1824, a Christian named Louis Braille invented a system of raised dots on paper so that blind people could read. He invented 63 symbols representing every language; hence God’s Word was placed into the hands of the visually impaired for the first time.  

Another Christian named Louis Pasteur, the French scientist who showed us that infection is the result of things we cannot see, namely germs & viruses. He introduced sterilisation methods that eventually saved lives of multitudes. You think God has run out of good ideas? Not a chance, ask Him for one for your life, ministry or your business.
