Faithfulness and Obedience in Sharing God's Word
And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you...”

Acts 18:9-10

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my devotional writing. When I write about my love for the Lord, it increases my love for him. Devotional writing is praise, prayer, and worship.

That’s why I find it difficult to write “on demand”. When I try to do that, I write with my head, not my heart. I saw what that did to my faith. The words became just “words on paper” and diminished my faithfulness to God and the message He was asking me to share. It took away the raw honesty and reverence of the message. Devotional writing needs to be inspired by God, not scheduled on a calendar.

At times, I feel led to write in many different venues. God doesn’t have a map for each of us who share His Word. The people who receive God’s message of love and hope are scattered everywhere. He knows who needs to receive a particular message and where they are. And sometimes I’m the one who needs to receive the message I sent.

I never want to stop learning about God or His plan for my life or His world. And I will also share His message wherever He leads me.

Father, I feel very blessed to be given the gift, opportunity, and responsibility of sharing Your Word. Help me to use it wisely, in the name of Jesus.
