Our Voice, His Words
I have a friend who never worries about the Communist security people as he works as a Bible teacher in China. He has confidence that the Holy Spirit will take care of him. So he does not prepare in any way for them if they should talk to him. They did one time, and he was quite surprised with how the Holy Spirit gave him the exact words and things he should say to these government officials. The Holy Spirit took over the situation he was in. He was allowed to continue on his way
"But when they deliver you up, do not become anxious about how or what you will speak; for it shall be given you in that hour what you are to speak. "For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. (Matthew 10:19-20)
One of the promises that Jesus gave his followers is that they do not have to worry about the words they should say when confronted by the authorities in the work of God. This does not mean that we should be indifferent to what we say or do, but it does mean that God the Father will take care of us through his Spirit when we are in great need.
