The Lord gave me this answer: “Write down clearly on tablets what I reveal to you, so that it can be read at a glance. Put it in writing” (Habakkuk 2:2–3a GNT).
“Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe” (Philippians 3:1 NKJV).
Aren’t you glad Moses or those who scribed for him wrote down what God said in the beginning? Because he recorded the creation story in Genesis, we know what happened and how it happened. The same is true for other books in the Bible. Isaiah and Jeremiah penned their prophecies. David kept track of his songs in Psalms. Solomon saved copies of his wisdom in Proverbs. In Revelation, John transcribed future events.
Even Paul recorded his teachings about Christ, and now they are safely preserved in our Bibles to read whenever we need them. Good words should be preserved—the message clear, concise, and easy to read. That’s where we come in as writers. When we put God’s truth down on tablets, it keeps it safe for others. With just a glance, they can find hope, encouragement, and faith.
