“Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light.” Matthew 10:27 People have some needs that are excruciatingly deep. We find ourselves in conversation at times with heartbroken friends and may feel at an utter loss to know what to say. Telling people what human teachers have taught us may have some impact on them. But the most helpful or persuasive words are spoken by those who are taught by the Lord Himself. That’s why it’s essential for us to learn from Him. The more we receive from Him, the more we have to give to others. It’s through our thoughtful and prayerful Bible study, reading, and quiet meditation that God speaks to our hearts so that we have something to share with those who are in the depths of despair. Listen to God’s heart, then speak from your heart to others.
