Luke 21:15 – “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”
Knowing what to say and when to say it can be quite a challenge in our daily lives. Too often we speak when we should have remained silent, and don’t say a word when we’re supposed to have spoken up. Many of us tend to explode in anger and say things we don’t mean, or keep our words bottled up inside and spoil our own peace.
Jesus’s words to the disciples in the 1st century still hold hope for us 20 centuries later. Jesus warned His followers of the persecutions they would have to endure, and how they might be brought before kings and governors. Yet, they wouldn’t have to worry about what they would speak because the Lord would give them wisdom and put His words in their mouths.
God is able and willing to do the same for you. When you seek Him in your situation, He will give you wisdom and teach you what to say, when you have to say it. None of your adversaries will be able to resist your knowledge or contradict your words. Allow the Lord to speak words of life, hope and faith through your mouth, that others may be blessed when they hear you.
