Yesterday, I posted a very long devotional. In my heart, I know people won’t read it because it’s not short and sweet, but I’m okay with that. When God began a work in me to step outside my comfort zone and use my voice and words to help bring the “saved” to salvation, I didn’t ask him how he would do it or what I was to say. I rely on him to speak to me, and I follow his voice for cues to what he wants me to reveal.
I do not write in the afternoon; it’s always before nine in the morning. So late Sunday afternoon, the Holy Spirit came upon me suddenly, and I began to write about true freedom in Christ. Hence the post from yesterday being unusually long. I asked for this assignment many years ago, and when he tells me to do something or not do something, I obey. When my post doesn’t get read, it’s of no concern to me; it’s God’s job to bring whoever he wants to hear. Though I do like it read, ultimately, it’s for God’s glory, not mine. Thanks for reading, my fellow evangels; it takes all of us to bring salvation to the world.
For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. 1 Thessalonians 2:3-4
