Write with expectation

What do I hope to accomplish with this piece? Am I writing this in the flesh, or have I allowed the Spirit of God to lead me?

I demand answers to these questions before I complete each article or story. Knowing the answers help me reach Godís will for each work.

I can expect to complete the work if Iíve established itís purpose. I can expect my words to be genuine once I know my audience. I can expect each sentence to accomplish what the Lord pleases if God has inspired me. I can write with expectation if Jesus Christ is the focal.

David said in Psalm 62:5, ďMy soul, thou wait only upon God; for my expectation is from him.Ē

David was a man with great expectations. He defeated the lion, the bear, the giant Goliath, and many other adversaries through his expectation in Godís anointing. We should have this same attitude in writing to Godís glory.

However, in this scripture I believe David was pressed by the enemy to act in haste. He had to instruct his soul, the innermost part of himself, to wait on Godís instruction. Haste will cause bad decisions that result in disastrous consequences. Writing in haste leads to writing in the flesh, and products of the flesh are enmity against God.

Father, help me leave flesh out of all my writing. Help me to be like David, who was not infallible, but a man that waited to hear your voice, and then walked in expectation.

Thanks for this reminder. It is so easy to fall into doing things in the flesh. I want this to be a year of walking in the Spirit. Your article was another reminder to do just that! Rebecca Livermore

It is fun to see that a strange inspiration is confirmed by a news story later.
