2 Timothy 4:1-2 – I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. (KJV)
- "This section is too confusing."
"The last paragraph is too long."
"The scripture is incorrect."
"Are you sure you want to share that story?"
I confess that I have had more than my share of editor's corrections. While I have sometimes disagreed, the reworking of the page always proves them to be correct.
While our goals are the same, editors are not personally attached to the words, and they can see the bigger picture.
God, our Life Editor, does the very same thing. Because He has a plan for us, He knows what needs to be done so that we will accomplish it. While we are clinging to our own tiny world, wanting our own tiny results, God is waiting to rewrite us, in His own time and with His own methods.
Prayer: Dear God, bring on the pen and scribble all over our "pages". Slash, cut, and edit all our lives. Rewrite us so that everything in our lives shows nothing but Jesus. Amen.
