He sneaks up on you and whispers in your ear:
- You don’t have anything worthwhile to say.
- You aren’t good enough.
- Others are more qualified than you.
- You can’t make a difference.
- Nobody will buy your book.
His name is Doubt. His agenda is to keep you from doing what God has called you to do.
The antidote: Faith.
When God calls you to act on his behalf, he will equip you to carry out the mission. When God calls you to act on his behalf, he does not call you to do something that is comfortable. He calls you out of your comfort zone so that you have to rely on Him and his strength, and your faith grows.
If God is calling you or has called you to write and publish a book, then:
- You do have something worthwhile to say.
- You are good enough.
- You are the one most qualified to say what God wants said.
- You can make a difference.
- If you do the work, God will bring those who need to hear your message to your book.
Have faith. Trust that God is guiding you to proclaim His message as only you can do. Proverbs 3 tells us to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will direct your paths.”
Your path is unique. It is yours alone and no one else has the same path as you. Not everyone responds to the same message in the same way. That is why we need many voices proclaiming truth to draw as many people as possible into a closer relationship with God.
Psalm 37 tell us that “The steps of a good man are order by the Lord, and he delights in his way.” Your job is to follow God and bring glory to his name. You do that by writing, publishing, and promoting your book with quality. Trust God and banish doubt.
