Does the Bible have examples of great inventors?
"Then Moses said to the sons of Israel, “See, the LORD has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge and in all craftsmanship; to make designs for working in gold and in silver and in bronze, and in the cutting of stones for settings and in the carving of wood, so as to perform in every inventive work. He also has put in his heart to teach, both he and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. He has filled them with skill to perform every work of an engraver and of a designer and of an embroiderer, in blue and in purple and in scarlet material, and in fine linen, and of a weaver, as performers of every work and makers of designs."

2 Chronicles 9:3-4
Does the Bible describe the independent inventor lifestyle?

1 Thessalonians 4: 11-12
Have there been modern day great inventors who have utilised God's inventive power?
Yes! Many! One example is Michael Faraday who was a book binder before he became one of the greatest inventors and scientists the world has seen. Here is what he said:
".... the Christian who is taught of God ... finds his guide in the Word of God ... and looks for no assurance beyond what the Word can give Him... The Christian religion is a revelation, and that revelation is the Word of God ... No revival and no temporal teaching comes between it and him. He who is taught of the Holy Spirit needs no crowd and no revival to teach him; if he stand alone he is fully taught..."
God blesses homeless youth with licensed inventions:
Abundant Father. Your love is better than my life. All the things I have and do cannot compare to the mystery of knowing God, and relating to Him as a friend. I seek You because You loved me first. Your grace and abundance have filled my life since the time I met You and invited You into my life. Holy Spirit, come and teach me the truths of God as I wait at Your feet, fill my life with the presence of God and lead me. In the glorious name of Jesus. Amen.
