Writer, do you ever feel stuck?
Do you ever feel entrenched in habits and cycles that keep you from writing? We all end up serving something. Whether it is the call of God or the call of the urgent. But I have good news for you today, writer.
John 8:36 – If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
If you have a call from your King to write, then He also equipped you with what you need to do it.
The problem is that sometimes our King is not at the helm. The verse before John 8:36 reminds us that whatever we serve, we become a servant to. So what are you serving today, writer? Are you serving an old idea of who you are?
Sometimes we need to retrain our brain with the truth. How do we do that? By practicing. And we practice believing the truth…and only the truth. The truth is this:
You were created in Jesus to do good works which the Father prepared in advance for you to do.
Your writing is a gift from Him. In Christ, He’s set you free from doubt, from fear, from insecurity, from lies, from old habits and patterns that would try to stop you. And believe me—they will try. Why? Because your work —your story—is important.
The commissions your King gives are not for small works. He is a King of glory. All His works are bursting with abundant life. It’s no wonder the enemy hates Him. But as you trust your King and cling to His grace to walk in His freedom, seeking His strategies, strength, help and wisdom—nothing can stop you. When you walk with your King along the path He’s made for you, you can overcome every obstacle.
If God is for us, who can be against us? …No in all these things we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. – Romans 8:31, 37
So take heart today, writer! Be of good courage! Your story is not small. And neither is the King who’s calling and equipping you to write it. By His grace, you can pick your pen and break the chains that have been holding you back. With His help, you already have all you need to overcome.
