Blogging Through The Gospels: Matthew 10


Matthew 10:19~20

19 When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour.

20 For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.


God, through His spirit, always provides us with wisdom and guidance for any situation in which we may find ourselves.


Recently, Miss 15 has started asking me some tough questions about God, salvation, faith, etc.  Seriously, these are deep questions that I never thought about at her age. Anyways, whenever I receive her texts (she likes to text me or message me on Facebook), I wonder if I’ve answered her questions fully and according to God’s word.  This scripture confirms for me that if I just open my mouth (or put my fingers to the keyboard as the case may be), God will speak for me and give me what to say.


Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for giving my daughter the thirst for knowledge of you and your ways.  I ask You to continue to speak through me that as many of her questions as she has to ask may be answered.  Lord, when I’m stumped and don’t know the right response, guide me in Your word so that I may never lead her astray.  Keep her eyes, heart and mind focused on You and continue to allow me to grow in You that I may be the mother that she needs.  Amen.

I’m joining with hundreds of other bloggers in studying God’s word through a program called Blogging Through The Gospels.  If you would like to participate, all you have to do is grab your Bible, read the selected chapter and then write a post on your blog.  Blogging Through the Gospels is hosted by Amy at Mom’s Toolbox.  To link up your post or read her SOAP, go here.

For more information about SOAP and its use for the Blogging Through The Gospels, please read What is SOAP? on Mom’s Toolbox.
