We’ve heard of power walking and power washing. Now let’s hear about power writing.
What is power writing? It’s writing with power. But not just any power. Power writing is writing with the power of the Holy Spirit. Another word for this power is anointing.
Just as there is a big difference between logos and rhema, so is there a big difference between writing and power writing. Just as rhema brings the Word to life, so does the anointing bring writing to life.
In and of itself, writing can be good, even great. But power writing alone can transform lives for all eternity, for power writing is infused with the very breath of God. Power writing alone has the ability to bring the reader into the realm of the Holy Spirit.
Here are some keys to make power writing your trademark:
1) See yourself as a pen in the hand of God. We are not self-contained units with our own writing agenda. We are inkwells who need to be continually filled with ink of the Holy Spirit.
2) Make sure your inkwell stays clean. God wants to pour His writing power into clean inkwells. We keep clean by regular self-examination and repentance.
3) Stay poised to write when the Holy Spirit moves. This requires listening for His voice in the midst of all the other voices that clamor for our attention. It may also require putting aside a current writing assignment in order to write what God wants us to write at the moment.
If you are born again, you are a Power Writer. Now just tap into that power and watch what happens to your writing.
