Dear Power Writers,
When I write, I actually see Jesus with my spiritual eyes sitting next to me to my right, looking at the computer screen with me. I sense Him guiding my thoughts. When I get stuck and don’t know what to write next, I ask, “Lord, what comes next?” He always tells me.
People often say to me that something I wrote–whether a short story, a poem, or an article–was exactly what they needed to read at that moment in time. They wonder how I knew. The truth is, I didn’t know. But Jesus did. I simply listened and obeyed.
Anointed writing comes not from ourselves but from Holy Spirit. It is He Who counsels us as we write. Without His Presence, our writing would be flat and lifeless. With His Presence, our writing not only comes to life, but it also gives life.
How can we receive Holy Spirit’s anointing on our writing? Simply by spending time with Him. Christianity is not a religion; it is a relationship. For a relationship to flourish, there must be constant communion. Unless we remain in continual communion with our Lord, we will wither as writers. But if we focus first on developing our relationship with Jesus, His anointing on our writing will flow as the natural outcome of that relationship.
When seeking to understand science and the universe, Albert Einstein once said, “I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know his thoughts. The rest are details.”
Do you want to know how to write with power? Seek to know God’s thoughts. The rest are details.
