One of the many promises that God has so graciously given us is found in Proverbs 18:16: “A man’s gift makes room for him . . . .” What a wonderful promise in light of the writing gift that our Lord has given us. We can be sure that if we put God first, He will find a place for our writing.
But there is the key: putting God first. Matthew 6:33 reminds us that if we seek first the Kingdom of God, then everything else we need to fulfill God’s purpose for our lives will be given to us.
God’s primary goal is to transform us into the image of Christ. Above all, He desires an intimate relationship with us. Everything else – even our writing – flows out of that relationship. Nothing – not even our writing – is more important than that relationship.
Let us never forget that our writing flows out of our being in Christ. Being before Doing. That’s the proper order of things.
