PASS WORDS

 
"I will give you words and a wisdom which none of your adversaries can take exception to or contradict." —Luke 21:15
 

Under the most overwhelming circumstances — in the face of death, on trial, betrayed by our families — we will be given a supernatural wisdom. We won't know what we're going to say before we say it (Lk 21:14). We'll be surprised at the words of wisdom and of courage which will come out of our mouths. We'll even be able to sing God's praises in the face of destruction (Rv 15:3).

We won't be the only ones surprised at ourselves. Those separated from God won't be able to account for the wisdom of our words without giving God the credit. What seemed a terrible situation will become an ideal forum for proclaiming the good news of Jesus.

When people see God's power shining through our weakness (2 Cor 12:9), they will proclaim that the Lord is present and working. This will open the door of faith, and many unbelievers will believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. All we have to do is live a life that is persecutable. The Lord will put the words in our mouths and do the rest.

 
Prayer: Father, give me the faith to risk my life for love of You.
Promise: "By patient endurance you will save your lives." —Lk 21:19
Praise: A background of reading and praying Scripture has helped Angela find the words needed to answer her friends who are skeptical about the Catholic faith (see 1 Pt 3:15).
