Gen 1:2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.
It seems to me that God is very deliberate here, like an artist or a potter. He starts by creating the raw materials and once those are gathered and in place He considers them before beginning to shape them. Our creative/artistic nature was certainly given to us by our creator.
God is a spirit, but not entirely a spirit. We see this from the way scripture is worded here. If I were to say, “The hand of Kirk gripped the iPhone.” You wouldn’t think that I was just one giant hand. The phrasing simply indicates that it is my hand and you know that it is a part of me. In the same way, this is God’s spirit and is a part of Him, but is not the entirety of His being.
