Today I’m beginning a series of devotions especially for Christian writers; however, the ideas and attitude of these devotionals are applicable to everyone seeking after God. I hope they bring hope and blessings to you. 🙂
Let’s get started with a Bible verse. Today’s devotional is centered on Hebrews 4:12-13 (NLT)
“For the word of the Lord is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our inmost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are. Nothing in all creation can hide from him. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes. This is the God to whom we must explain all that we have done.”
This is the God we serve! His word is full of living power. As Christians, we can access that same power. Whether fiction or nonfiction, when we allow the Spirit to lead our writing He consecrates our work unto the Lord. Will you relinquish control of your writing and sacrifice it to God so you can be the writer He has purposed you to be?
PRAYER: Jesus, how awesome that I have access to your living Word! Thank you for cutting into my deepest desires and thoughts, and for showing me who you want me to be. Sometimes my fears bind me, making me incapable of dreaming, but when I open my heart to your Holy Scripture, you set me free. You give me hope and courage to look forward to a great future. God, I don’t want to be hidden from you, but the idea of being exposed terrifies me. Help me be courageous. Help me dream. Help me be wise with my time. Lord, I dedicate myself to you, so when I give an account for every moment of my life on earth, you will receive glory.
In Jesus holy name, amen.
