Verse of the day
But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;
It is relieving to know that God is not a taskmaster, to know that He would not put us in the field to work for Him without giving us the necessary tools to carry out the task. He hasn’t only equipped us to work, He has also secured us against any attack and given us His presence. His Spirit Who is in us means that we have Him with us always.
We are Christ’s delegates on earth, His representatives, delegated with His authority so we can continue the works He began while on earth (and do greater works even). However, in carrying out this task, we have been told ahead of the place of being persecuted of men, which is the devil’s way of revenge against us for the work done for Christ and against him.
However, in the midst of these persecutions, we need not fear or worry for we are secure in Christ. He is with us and defends us through them. When summoned in response to our righteous living or preaching of the gospel, we need not rehearse or premeditate on what should be said. Through His Spirit and wisdom, Christ gives us divine and appropriate utterance. Therefore, while spreading the gospel of Christ and facing persecutions at it, we should not be afraid for He is with us always.
Lord, thank You for the gift of Your Spirit. I’ll depend on Him which is in me to give me utterance in times when my faith is being tried. Help me to trust in You alone and not the arm of flesh.
