February 13

Do you ever just allow God's power to work through you? When I started pulling things together for my first devotional book, I put in place a few ground rules, 1) I will wait on God's timing, 2) I will listen intently to the Holy Spirit for guidance, 3) If writing this book is God's will, then He will provide the funding to do it. As a testament to show God's faithfulness, I didn't spend a dime! As far as the timing, I had thought that I had enough writings to have it complete long before  I did, but that's not what God wanted. After a review of those, I realized that I needed to keep writing. Here is the caveat: if the words reach out and grab you, then you know that they were inspired. If the words stink, it was me trying to force it by working through my own power, which is no power at all! My prayer has always been that if the words were uninspired, they go completely unnoticed. The point of this is, "let go and let God!"

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
