2 Timothy 1:7. For God did not give us a Spirit a of fear but of power and love and self-control.

I get a lot of comments but, as I wrote in the “About me” page, I do not post any comments for that would divert attention from the devotions.  The comments are very much appreciated for the encourage me to keep writing and posting.  Every day I fight fear: I may not have anything to write, I may not hear God correctly, I may write what I hear in a way others will misunderstand.  How do I get passed those fears?  I remind myself God is bigger than any mistake I can ever make.  I pray over each devotion that each reader will receive only what God wants for that day.  God spoke through a mule and He can speak through each and every one of us.  Be it open our mouths or take pen or keyboard in hand, God wills us to pass His words to us on to others.  Our question is are we willing to trust Him to speak through us?  Are we willing to acknowledge He will use us in His way and will override our mistakes?  I once had a choir director who said, “if you don’t sing loud enough to hear you won’t know if you’re making a mistakes.”  Let us be willing to speak or write in the faith of God.
