“Get to know Me…”
These were the only words I heard God spoke to my heart as I asked Him in silent whisper, “But…what will I write, Lord?”. I didn’t know what else to say. “Where am I going to start?” But over and over, his words reverberate in my ears like an echo fading in an empty room, “Get to know Me.”
As the words faded silently in my heart, all I could say was, “Yes, Lord.” Then tears just naturally came rolling down my cheeks, as if an order from the heavenly throne had just been passed down. The sound of His still small voice made it so humbling yet so very sweet.
That was almost seven years ago, but I knew right there and then that I was called to write. Never thought I could, never thought I would. But these were His words. I have been asking Him for the longest time what my purpose is – something that is highly personal to me. And this was His answer. He wants me to be His scribe.
Yes, me. But why me? I’m not sure if I got the qualifications. I didn’t have the experience. I’ve not written anything more than sloppy high school essays ever in my life. Yet He wants me to write for Him, and all He requires of me is… “Get to know Me”.
So I incline my ears to hear Him more, stay close to Him to hear the message He wants to say to His people. This journey, this path He has chosen for me is going to be challenging yet I’m certain that it would be quite an adventure. And as I joyfully submit to His calling, He reassures me of this promise,
“Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. (Habakkuk 1:5 NIV)
Then the Lord replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” (Habakkuk 2:2-3 NIV)
