Day 3 – What’s it all about?

Confidence level

8610742 s 150x130 Day 3   Whats it all about?Part of my current journey is learning how to overcome (well, walk in the Truth of) the fact that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Really realising that God has provided everything that is necessary in order for me to do what He’s put me on earth to do.

I’ll be honest with you and admit that this is a difficult journey for me, becasue my dreams are so big that the route to getting to them is scary. I’m not daunted by the size of the dreams, just by the things that I will have to learn and become in order to get to them.

I’ve always asked God why I seem to be more afraid of the route than the end goal. It seems that for so many it’s the other way around. The very few people that I have shared my dreams with are flabbergasted by what God has placed on my heart to do, but I just get excited by the vision. I know that this happens because it’s my journey. My calling. My mission.

A big part of what I will do, is writing. There will be blog posts like this one, books, articles etc etc. Yet I have such a resistance to sitting down to write and get all caught up in having the correct grammar and spelling, sounding intellectual and being seen to be ‘perfect’ that it takes me ages and ages to get any piece of writing done. Then, I allow all sorts of distractions in that give me an excuse for not meetinga  deadline. I even argue with the LORD and give all sorts of silly excuses for not being obedient (I am SO grateful for God’s mercy and grace along my journey). What is even crazier is that I KNOW that this is a plot of the enemy to stop me doing the very thing that God is calling me to do, and yet I still fall into the trap.

You know what though? I’m beginning to see glimmers of light. The light that indicates that I’m letting the Holy Spirit help me to really walk out the daily steps that I’m supposed to. I’ve started really concentarting on what the Bible says in the ‘Armour of God’ in Ephesians 6 and this mroning as I was reading through it again, verse 10 really stood out:

In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides] (Amp)

It struck me right between the eyes (as the Word has a habit of doing icon smile Day 3   Whats it all about? ). God knows how to write. God knows how to put words together in such a beautiful way that all of His anointing power flows through them and helps and heals and loves on everyone who reads them. Just as Paul says in 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

And my language and my message were not set forth in persuasive (enticing and plausible) words of wisdom, but they were in demonstration of the [Holy] Spirit and power [a proof by the Spirit and power of God, operating on me and stirring in the minds of my hearers the most holy emotions and thus persuading them], So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of God.

So, I sat here during my QT and started dreaming with God as to what that would look like. What would it look like to be a part of His plan to speak to people through my writing? What difference could be made in people’s lives when the scales fell off their eyes and they actually saw the Truth of their situation for the first time (exactly like what was hapening to me)? By this time I was getting very excited. What would it be like if people were in a really tough situation and they picked up a little booklet that I wrote or read a blog post online and God was able to give them specific help for their situation through something that He and I had written? Woohoo! By this time I was really excited! icon biggrin Day 3   Whats it all about?

So, I decided to hold Him to His word and I broke it down and made it relevant to me. How would I be ‘empowered through my union with Him’? Well, if He knows exactly what He wants written, then all I need to do is accept my assignemt and sit with my fingers poised above the keyboard and let it flow out of me. So, I did.

All I can say is that I have spent most of today writing and writing and writing. It has just flowed out of me. No effort on my part but submitting to Him, being absolutley delighted that we get to do this together and fired up by the impact all of this will have on exactly the people that it’s destined to help!

What an amazing journey! What an amazing God! What an amazing privilege!
