There are mornings when I sit down to write and I haven’t got a story to tell. Imagine that, my life boring! That’s when I tell God “I’ve got nothing!” I immediately go to His word. Just because I don’t hear His voice a certain way, doesn’t mean He’s not speaking to me. Sometimes you have to get into the Bible to actually hear what He is saying to you. Your thoughts are not His thoughts, so there’s no guessing! Even when you think you’re hearing His voice, you must verify what you think He’s saying; it must match His word. The word of God is full of life and He will speak into you and give you hope, fill you with His love, and confirm what you thought you heard from Him. The Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, is an important part of the armor that will help you in your defense against the ways of the enemy; make sure you keep it sharp!
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
