The gospel will always be resisted and then accepted.
When you walk with God long enough he will reveal himself to you in so many different ways. You will get up one day and discover that the Holy Spirit is your teacher. He will show up in the court as your judge one day and the next day he will be your Doctor at the hospital. He will be your banker in one month and the next month he will be your body guard. When you walk with the Holy Spirit long enough, I can guarantee one thing to you, there will never be a time when you will walk alone.
Mark 13:11 “But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.”
In the Bible verse above, we see Jesus teaching his disciples how to walk in the Spirit. He started by telling them that “when they shall lead and deliver you up…” Jesus did not say “if they deliver you up” but he said “when they deliver you up”. This means it was something that was surely going to happen as they preached the gospel. There is one thing that is always sure as you start preaching the gospel; this thing is called resistance. The moment you step out to start doing what God has called you to do, there is always something or someone that will resist you. The good news is that we don’t have to fight for ourselves or by ourselves; all we need to do is to activate the power of God in us. As you keep your gaze on the word of God you will soon find out that your resistance is behind you.
This is what Jesus was instructing his disciples, he told them not to even think of what to say. He told them that when they are called for questioning they must not think of their approach, but at the same hour when they open their mouth to speak, the Holy Spirit shall place the right words there. This is the kind of life we have been called to live by. Praise God!

Father, I refuse to be intimidated by my environment, my colleagues, my jobs or my circumstance. I am rising above the forces of this world and I am taking a firm stand on God’s side. I do not think of what to say, when the moment shows up, the Holy Ghost will speak from within me. I am living a life of victory and success today in Jesus name. Amen.
