KEEP WAXING BOLDER,
(Be Courageous In The Face Of Opposition),
TO THE BIBLE Luke 12:11-12 MSG📖
“When they drag you into their meetingplaces, or into police courts and before judges, don’t worry about defending yourselves–what you’ll say or how you’ll say it. The right words will be there. The Holy Spirit will give you the right words when the time comes.”
After a friend spoke to Heather about Jesus and the transcendent life He’d purchased for her, she believed and readily accepted Him. But there was one problem: Heather’s parents weren’t Christians, and she wasn’t sure they’d approve of her being one. Many thoughts ran through her mind as she contemplated the decision she had just made.
If you’re in a similar situation as Heather, you need to understand that your family background shouldn’t deter you from accepting and serving the Lord Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter that your family members don’t yet know the Lord; you’re the seed of God’s salvation sown into that family. And don’t be afraid of being persecuted because of your new-found faith. Now that you’ve received the God-kind of life, that life in you is able to make you withstand whatever opposition you face. It will make you victorious in every circumstance. That’s the reason you must be filled with the Holy Spirit. The moment you receive Him, you have it made, because He’ll help you live out the divine life you now have.
Jesus said you don’t need to pre-meditate what you’ll say when you’re questioned about your faith. The Holy Spirit will put the right words in your mouth, and your testimony will draw those who hear it to Christ. Hallelujah!
5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.
8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
I’m sold out to the Lord and His glorious Gospel. I’m full of the Holy Ghost and therefore, I boldly declare His Word everywhere I go. I’m strengthened with might and I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me, in Jesus’ Name.
