When I was a young child I had a difficult time speaking, talking and communicating. While in elementary classes I was put in a special class that was supposed to help me with my speech.
I don’t remember those classes or sessions helping at all. Does anyone remember the TV show “Blinky’s Fun Club?” When I was a preschooler I was a guest on this show with some of my friends. During the show Blinky the Clown asked me what my name was. I didn’t respond or utter a word, because I COULD NOT EVEN PRONOUNCE MY OWN NAME. My friend came to my rescue and answered for me.
There have been several things that caused a positive result for me. Firstly, reading my Bible! Genesis 1:26 says, “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness . . .” I came to an amazing conclusion; I’m made in God’s Image. I am intelligent because He is. I will TRUST HIM to help me communicate.
Secondly, there is another scripture that just blessed me so much; blasting me upwards like a rocket!
“But you shall receive POWER when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be WITNESSES TO ME in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”Acts 1:8
It isn’t about me, it is about HIM! I had been told I was shy. We do not have a spirit of timidity, a spirit of fear, but power and SOUND MIND! (II Timothy 1:7). When we receive the Holy Spirit He gives us the power to witness. It is a fire that can not be quenched.
The Holy Spirit will teach us what to say – hallelujah!
“Simply be confident and allow the Spirit of Wisdom access to your heart, and he will reveal in that very moment what you are to say.”Luke 12:12 (Passion)
