6 Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
Scripture Reflection Luke 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. 13This will result in your being witnesses to them.
Before Your return Lord, I will be provided opportunity to witness for you in settings that I would never image. I need to be looking for opportunities to talk about you, to be a witness for you, naturally in a way that is not stilled or phony but honest and authentic. The chances that are afforded to say a word for you should be viewed as opportunities not occasions to be fearful or intimidated.
14But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.
The opportunities that I am offered will come with the right words, the Spirit tailored applications, the wisdom to say the right word that you need said. Clutch times will come when I will have no other resource than that which you give me at the moment, and the words will come. You know me Lord so well, you know that if there is time I will depend on preparation and all the available resources that I can find, but that will not be the case when I am brought into these God appointments of evangelism, the right words will come from you.
16You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17All men will hate you because of me. 18But not a hair of your head will perish. 19By standing firm you will gain life.
Primary relationships of life will be destrupted and changed as your return approaches.There will be a protection that will be available which is connected to the simple actions of obedience.
Lord help me in these days that you have given to me to just put one foot in front of the other...to watch and be obedient.
