Commit your works to the Lord, and your plans will be established. Proverbs 16:3
When writing devotional or other material, I desire to commit my work plan to the Lord, then writing not only will nourish someone else’s soul but also mine. I cannot help but feel God’s power inspiring me when I ask His help in releasing that creative energy. Writing takes commitment to the task and without it, our thoughts will not take flight to land in the hearts of others who may read our words.
July is the month we celebrated Independence Day. We know from studying the background of our founding fathers that they, too, prayed for God to guide their steps and establish their way. We know they were committed, and that they kept their eyes on the goal of establishing a free country, based on the truth of God’s word. As writers we can do no less.
Similarly, there are some people who have not yet gotten the news of freedom in Jesus Christ and of the Kingdom authority He has given His people. Let’s stay committed to the goal that God has given each of us in reaching out to others. Then they and we will be truly free.
