In our last segment, we looked at the importance of confidence in God and we ended by saying our next segment will look at two benefits of such confidence.
I pray that as we look at these, the Holy Spirit, the greatest teacher of all, will inspire us
Earlier, we talked about being in Flight school.
I believe we have all been putting ourselves to work spiritually and so have received even more revelations from God.
Today therefore, we will be discussing writing down the things we hear, and see from God. We will be talking about the three major reasons to “make it plain.”
“…Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” Habakkuk 2:2
There continues to be an unparalleled benefit in writing down the thoughts, visions, and revelations given to us of God. God is no respecter of persons and until He sees how dedicated you are to “preserving His decrees,” He will not be committed to opening your eyes to see even more of those decrees. It takes diligence in meditation to receive divine ideas of the Lord and anything worth investment is also worth writing down. Firstly therefore, we write what God shows to us so as to…
“Put me in remembrance…” Isaiah 43: 26
Secondly, we do this so as to improve ourselves. As Bishop David Oyedepo says, “Those who think on paper, think better.”
Writing improves our thought process as it is said that what we write is always the more refined version of what we speak. This therefore means that when we write down the things God expects us to, we put down the more refined version causing us to think even deeper hence improving our crave for access to even more revelation for understanding.
Thirdly, we do it for future referencing.
Writing things down helps us put necessities in perspective and whenever we get to go back and read, we find something; that is, discover something that we maybe might not have seen before.
I know on a personal note, this is one important reason I enjoy writing things down. Recently, I found a couple of papers I had written back in June/July 2007. These papers although were not on just revelations I was receiving at the time but also on the happenings at that time, reading them took me back to that place. The place I was the moment I wrote those things down and that put more of a drive on my inside.
Also aside from creating room for you to go back in time, it creates room for others to see what you are/were made of
Let us use Smith Wigglesworth as a case study.
He never personally wrote a book but the memoirs and notes for which he wrote for himself have been used by others to make books about him. His grace was unparalleled and if he had not followed the word of Habakkuk 2:2 and written the revelations of which he had down, there currently would be no testimonies of his from which we would be able to draw from.
God has promised to give us indescribable wisdom and has also said,
“And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.” Isaiah 61:4
“They” in this context speaks about us and if we want for others to also be blessed from the many God is set to load us with, we must not forget to put down the words and the pictures of which the Lord shows to us; also including how we access them so that one day, many will also be blessed from us- and not just physically.
God will grant us grace to put His words down right so as to put them in remembrance in Jesus name.
Until next time, please call or write, and share your testimonies with me through
