“And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious about how you should defend yourself or what you should say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” Luke 12:11-12

Often in my life, I seem to have trouble articulating my faith. I’ve never been on trial for what I believe, never faced imprisonment for it. Yet I still often have trouble explaining my faith to others. I think, looking at this passage in Luke, that the problem may be is that I am anxious about what to say, instead of relying on God to empower me to speak. So, how can I learn to trust God more in defending my faith? How can you?
