Luke 12:11-12 “Whenever they bring you before synagogues and rulers and authorities, don’t worry about how you should defend yourselves or what you should say. 12 For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that very hour what must be said.” ~CSB
In my time in the Army and in law enforcement, I have been trained to prepare myself for the worst situations. For instance, I was trained to think about an incident that could go wrong, and five solutions for that situation. I took that training to situations in my everyday life and found myself preparing for something that may never take place.
But one day the Spirit of the Lord told me not to do that anymore. God said in His Word that He sent us a Comforter and a Counselor. God gifted us each with the Holy Spirit that will guide us through tough situations. Think about it, how often do you find yourself talking to yourself, responding to a person who is not there; or a situation that has not happened yet? All of this causes us stress. The encounter with people and the uncomfortable situations are not for you. They are for Him.
God wants to use us in these situations we encounter. That person or that situation is to be used by the Father to show others His power in healing and peace through you. We are not to figure out what to do under our own power. Rather, we are to walk our Christian walk and allow the Holy Spirit to say the right words of ‘healing’ that will come from God. This power of the Holy Spirit will bring a ‘miracle’ solution to any situation.
God’s power in us will always defeat the enemy’s influence, on us and those around us. But we must trust God. Never fall away from trusting in God’s power and will for our lives. Until we learn to fully trust God, we will remain further away from our goal in loving God as much as He loves us.
May God continue to bless and keep you in His grace in Jesus’s name.
