Although we will not see this on the news, the Body of Christ across the world is rising up in new strength as our Lord’s return approaches. Holy Spirit is sweeping across the earth, restoring us, refreshing us, and renewing us. Are you open to His work?
Prophet Chuck Pierce says that success is “being at the right place at the right time doing the right thing”. It is important in these last days that we know where God wants us, when God wants us there, and what we are to do while there.
If you find yourself wandering in the wilderness, stop and seek God. Ask Him to align you with His will for you. Seek Him with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind. These are not times in which we believers can be complacent. We are still on this earth because we have not yet finished the work God has given us to do. It is His work because this life is all about Him, not about us.
So let’s examine our heart motives. Are we truly writing for the Lord’s purposes or for our own? Are we more interested in exalting God or exalting ourselves? Do we want to be famous or do we want Jesus to be famous?
One good way to answer these questions is to observe how we feel when another writer wins an award or gets an acceptance from a publisher. Are we sincerely happy, or do we feel a twinge of envy. If the latter, then our motive for writing is not right.
These may be hard words, but they are written in love. We are all one in Christ. Let us, therefore, unite in one purpose for the glory of our King, Jesus Christ!
