Is it Invention or Discovery?

11/17/2014: Is it Invention or Discovery? I used to reason that what man came up with was invention. I reasoned that biblically God was a creator. He shares His wisdom with all men. Man’s creative nature comes from being created in the image of God.

However, to take this further, if God knows all things and knows the end from the beginning how does he invent anything, since he knows about it already?

It also states that there is nothing new under the sun, so how does one invent something that exists? To take this further it says that all wisdom and knowledge is hidden in Christ Jesus.

Therefore I have come to the conclusion that it is not invention, but discovery of what exists and is hidden in Christ Jesus. It is discovery of the wisdom and knowledge that God shares generously with all men.

I want to have well prepared soil in my spirit and mind to be in a position to receive by revelation wisdom and knowledge from the Lord.

Therefore I claim as part of my inheritance what is recorded in Daniel 5:12. I paraphrase that “I have an extraordinary spirit, knowledge and insight, interpretation of dreams and ability for explanation of enigmas and solving of difficult problems in the Name of Jesus.
