Tonight marks a milestone for me. Thanks to the Holy Spirit, the power of prayer and God’s impeccable timing to bring a wonderful college friend back into my life along with her husband, I have a book on Amazon. (I know, everybody does.)
But this isn’t just a story about my being a writer; this is a story about God’s revealing Himself to me day in and day out. There is no way I can even sit here tonight and write out this reflection, except for the power of the Holy Spirit, who faith- fully meets me in my office and shares His wisdom and insight with me. The Spirit has taught me more about Jesus, His incarnation, His cross and His resurrection than I ever dreamed possible. He has taught me through the Scriptures, exposed my sin and given my self a smack down when needed. He has taught me obedience, though I am a poor student.
I am a sinful human being who gets alone with God, so God will get alone with me. And the cool thing? He does this for everyone.
I have written down what He has taught me during these times, so I won’t forget it. (A real possibility at my age.) And that is why I have a book.
Our God is amazing. And after today, I know with absolute certainty that the Psalmist is right, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4).
