Thursdays – Dawn’s Devotions for Writers

“Do your best, prepare for the worst—
then trust God to bring victory.”
(Proverbs 21:31 The Message)

What a powerful message!

In just a few words, Proverbs 21:31 delivers a strong motto to live by, no matter what we’re tackling.

Do our best. We can’t do more than that, but we should at least do that much. That means when it comes to our writing—we write, rewrite, and then rewrite again as many times as necessary to create a piece that is as good as we can make it.

Prepare for the worst. If we prepare, we’re not surprised for any result that may disappoint. What’s the worst thing that can happen? A rejection? No publication? A bad review? Poor sales?

Trust God to bring the victory. We're never alone. That includes our writing career. God is in the trenches with us. He has a plan. He’s in control.

Trust him to bring the victory!
