October 8, 2017: SOAP #2866: Ezra 9-10; Psalm 131; Luke 21

Scripture:  Luke (NIV) 21:12 “But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13 This will result in your being witnesses to them.   14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.

Observation:   The One who has promised to never leave us, in this passage promises to place words and wise thoughts in our heads at the time we need them.

Application:   When I have opportunity to speak on behalf of the Lord as His witness, I can count on Him giving me the words to say and wisdom to respond to those accusing me.

Prayer:     Holy Spirit, I count on you to keep this promise. Amen
