Personal Manifesto of Linda Knight
Through my writing, I strive to help people see that God’s Word is not only viable, but should be applied to our lives each and every day of the year.
Whether you are old or young, the message of God’s Word can apply to your life. God promises that His Word will guide us, bring us closer to Him, and give us direction for living. All too often, though, we forget these promises and allow fear to take over.
My passion comes from a deep belief that God’s Word has power. The written Word of God (the Bible) has just as much power as the words God spoke to create the world. God’s Word can and does change our lives––and the study of God’s Word leads us closer to Jesus, shows us who God is, and demonstrates His character. I am convinced that the more we know about God the closer we can walk with Him, feel His Spirit within us, and grasp the messages that Jesus, the prophets, and Apostles delivered so many years ago in the Bible.
I never expected to write a book.
It all started with a word study about fear. I was experiencing a lot of troubles in my life that were causing me to live fearfully. I heard someone say that there are 365 references to not being fearful in the Bible. I thought, “I’m a pretty good Bible Student, and I don’t remember seeing that many!” The search began with my Bible’s concordance and ended with my very own book. I discovered 70 instances where we are told specifically to not have fear, and 295 other references about having fear. The fear we are encouraged to have should be directed towards God Almighty.
My writing relies on God.
After writing my first book, I began blogging. My devotional blogs and books are written to stimulate your thoughts towards God and show you a way to apply God’s Word to your life the very same day you read it.
It is my desire that through my devotions, you the reader will be led into God’s Word and begin to hunger for the righteousness to be found there. Creating materials that are straightforward, uncomplicated, and based on Scripture, and making them available to my readers is essential to my purpose as a writer. I claim Isaiah 55:11 in all my writings. God promises that His Word will not return empty, and will accomplish His purpose. I can trust in His results as God keeps His promises.
I pray my devotional books and blog posts will touch you and cause you to open your Bible to seek His truth for yourself.
Blessings as you open His Word,
