Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

…the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “I am the Lord. Speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.” – Ex 6:29

Moses didn’t have to come up with the words he would speak to Pharaoh on his own. God promised that He would provide the speech; all Moses had to do was simply recite it.

Jesus gave His disciples a similar message: “But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit” (Mk 13:11).

God will inject us into situations in which we feel unqualified, unprepared, and wholly inadequate. But when He does, He promises to speak through us. God will give us an audience with rulers (read: your boss, your co-workers, and other influential people in your life). He does not do it to see what we will say; He does it so the world will see what He will say through us.

We are God’s mouthpieces. God is looking for humble servants who rely on His Holy Spirit to speak through them. Don’t be afraid to open your lips and let His words come out! Be confident! God will give you His speech when you need it most.

Prayer:

Father, thank You for filling my heart with Your word and my mouth with speech. I know that You will never put me in a tough situation and then leave me hanging. You are God and You speak through me!
