Have you noticed that we can find all sorts of excuses not to speak out for the Lord? I have, and I’ve used a few over the years: I’m too young in the faith, I don’t know enough, I don’t know exactly what to say…
But I’ve come to realize that when a person’s heart is willing, God will equip them with all they need. The Bible tells of so many men and women who were convinced they couldn’t do what God was calling them to do. And they were right – on their own, they had every excuse not to step out. In His grace, though, God made them able – and He’ll do that for any one of us. So let’s go!
“His voice leads us not into timid discipleship but into bold witness.”
“But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.”
“For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power,love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord…”
2 Timothy 1:6-8
