JULY 18, 2013 – IT WILL TURN OUT – Have you ever had anyone in your life speak against your faith? Look at what Jesus had to say in Luke 21:16, “You will be betrayed even by your parents and brothers, relatives and friends.” In verse 13 of this same chapter Jesus also said this about those who will come against you , “But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony.” Those closest to you will come against your faith, but don’t get upset. Instead, look at it as “An Occasion”; just like The Word says! It’s an occasion for you to continue to walk by faith. Your testimony is not just the day that you were saved. Your testimony is how you handle every day life; you are testifying to your true beliefs. And those who have spoken against you are watching you. You do not have to figure out what to say to them in your defense (Luke 21:14-15). The Holy Spirit is your defender. He will give you the words to say, and He will give you the strength to look them straight in the eye! It will turn out – For the glory of the Lord!
