In my journey of writing to share God's message, I've learned to trust in His guidance completely. It's not about who reads my work; my focus is on obeying what God has commanded me to do and leaving the rest to Him. This perspective has brought me peace and assurance, knowing that God will lead the right people to encounter His word through my writing.

Scripture affirms this trust in God's guidance. Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.” These verses are foundational to my approach, emphasizing the importance of relying on God's wisdom rather than my own.

Another verse that resonates with me is Psalm 32:8, which says, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you." This verse assures me that God is actively involved in guiding my steps as I write, providing counsel and direction that surpasses human understanding.

When it comes to reaching the right audience with my writing, I find comfort in Isaiah 55:11, which states, "So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it." This verse assures me that God's word will fulfill its purpose, reaching the hearts of those who need to hear it.

My responsibility is to remain faithful in writing what God has laid on my heart, knowing that He will use it according to His perfect plan. As Romans 8:28 reminds me, "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." This verse encourages me to trust that God will use my writing for His glory and the good of those who encounter it.

In conclusion, trusting God's guidance in writing involves surrendering my plans and desires to Him, believing that He will lead the right people to read and benefit from His word through my writing. As I continue on this journey, I am reminded of Philippians 1:6, "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." God is faithful, and He will accomplish His purposes through my writing as I trust in Him wholeheartedly.
