Can God Use Your Writing?


By Tammie Fickas

Can God use you for His glory? Do you ever surprise about that? Writers are sometimes their very own worst critics, and the enemy likes to capitalize on that. He can get your ideas all tied up in knots till you might be sure that your life has nothing of worth to supply in written phrase, and that God would by no means use somebody as insignificant as you.

Sound acquainted? From what I’ve heard from different writers, it occurs, even to the very best of us. Sadly for me, it’s all too acquainted. I used to be shocked lately once I heard {that a} multi-published and award-winning creator had doubts about their very own writing at instances. It could be that that is a part of God’s method of maintaining us humble. After we lean on our personal phrases and plans, we might not provide a lot, however once we let God take management, issues start to lookup.

All through historical past, God has used essentially the most unlikely of individuals to unfold his message and share his love. Bear in mind Moses? In Exodus 4, God is sending Moses to Pharaoh to implore him to let God’s folks go. God has simply gone by way of displaying Moses that with His energy, Moses might flip a workers right into a snake, flip his hand leprous and clear once more, and alter water from the Nile into blood. And nonetheless Moses responds, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please ship another person.”

Oh my, I can relate to Moses at that time limit. I feel many people can. The duty appears so massive and foreboding, and absolutely God doesn’t suppose little outdated you possibly can deal with it. May He?

Certain, God can get His message throughout by way of another person, but when He has chosen you, there’s a cause. Once I learn this Bible story, I got here to the phrases in verse 14 “Then the Lord’s anger burned in opposition to Moses…” God did relent and let Aaron ship the message, however He wasn’t joyful.

As we battle doubts about our skills to write down eloquently and unfold God’s message, we have to keep in mind God’s anger.  He did give Moses what he wished, however not with out value. Moses felt God’s anger at his alternative. God had given Moses the flexibility to do that specific task. He coached him and inspired him, then Moses chickened out. He didn’t belief his God given authority. If God has given you the reward of writing, He has additionally given you the authority to take action.

My buddy and mentor, Jim Rubart, sat throughout from me in the future as we have been discussing my writing and mentioned, “You’ll want to consider that you’ve got the authority to inform your story.” That dialog jogged my memory that I’m the one one who can share the teachings discovered from my life, simply as you’re the one one who can share your knowledge. Whereas our tales could also be comparable, the way in which we’ve lived them out is completely different. In that distinction comes our particular person proper and privilege to affix God ministering to others.

The enemy is all the time going to attempt to get you off monitor. He relishes the concept of you not believing in your self or the expertise the Lord has instilled in you. As a Christian author, our struggle must be in opposition to that lie so God might pour out His blessing by way of our phrases. We’ll by no means be precisely like our favourite author, however that doesn’t imply that our writing doesn’t price and goal Consider in your self and your story. Hold preventing the nice struggle and belief God in His resolution to ship you.

Don’t chicken out. Trust God to use your writing. Blog by Tammie Fickas. #ACFWBlogs #writingtips #writing Click To Tweet
