Loss For Words


My friends, I pray all is well. I have been so busy with work and enjoying my private life. Nevertheless, I must not neglect to write my blogs. God is still the ruler of my life!

Let me ask you, have you ever been in a situation where someone says something to you and you were at a loss for words? Well, that happens to me every now and then when I do not have on the full armor of God and then I feel stupid. Well, as I was studying one of Ken Hemphill's devotionals titled, "We Can", Mr. Hemphill made three important points in this particular lesson in regards to being at a loss for words. He said that there is a way for us to answer the critic, but we must be very confident in doing so. Okay, so how do we answer the critic without being at a loss for words? Mr. Hemphill says:
1)First, we must receive it; that is, study diligently and ask God for direction and understanding of the Word;
2)We must appropriate it; that is, our willingness to obey;
3)We must delight in it; that is, we must feast on the Word daily, morning, noon and night.

When we study God's Word, we must study with a purpose, we must study truthfully and then we must ask God for understanding of what we have read. As we keep on studying the Word, we will find that when someone says something that may catch us off guard, we can hit them with the Word because God gives us a spirit of boldness, not timidity. When we are grounded in the Word, God gives us the ability to answer the critic lovingly and cheerfully, leaving them no choice but to leave us alone.

My friends, I encourage you to get in the Word, study daily, study with an open mind, study diligently, but most importantly pray before you read and pray after you read
the Word asking God for clarity.

Be blessed,
Therese from Belize
