Where does an artist get his inspiration from?

Needless to say, my favorite book is really 66 books, the Holy Bible, which teaches me, inspires me and even reproves me when necessary. Probably my favorite verse is Psalm 73:26 which reads:

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
