Trust in the Holy Spirit
You have back up.
When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father —the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me. And you also must testify. John 15:26-27
Trust the Holy Spirit to work in their lives while you are taking with them. When you want to testify about Jesus to family, friends or co-workers do not face it alone. Try this: before you testify to anyone about Jesus FIRST ask the Holy Spirit to direct your words to have an effect on them and for Him to move their spirit to be open to Him.
"May the grace of Christ our Saviour,|And the Father's boundless love,|With the Holy Spirit's favour,|Rest upon us from above." — John Newton
Everyone who is a Christian has experienced a time when the Holy Spirit was talking to them. Maybe it was during a sermon or talking with a Christian friend or listening to Christian music or reading a Christian book. Just as He spoke to you, so too can He speak to someone you are sharing your faith with.
Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands. Elisabeth Elliot
Prayer: Holy Spirit guide my words and actions that they will bring praise, honour, glory and the little lost sheep to Jesus. Move the hearts of those listening to be receptive to what is being said. I ask this in the name of the biggest mover of hearts, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
