Unfortunately many do not understand the impact of being silent and not defending one self when your faith is being attacked or questioned.
Silence is actually my strong suit. I find my actions allow more of a presentation than my words as my words seem to always go for a formula or system and rarely able to do justice to my relationship with Jesus.
It also allows me to step aside and Jesus to step forward. When I can present Jesus, I know that He can use me or ask me to remain silent as He does what He needs to do with those who are challenging me.
So I leave me challengers with this simple request – whether you believe or not in God or Jesus, ask Him to answer your challenge. If He does, you know how you need to respond. If He does not, no worries, you are in the same position as you are today.
Unfortunately, no one has ever taken me up on this offer. They are all afraid that Jesus might answer and make a showing in their lives.
Do not let anyone tell you that silence has no power – letting Jesus take the platform is never a wrong decision to make as you walk with Him.
