Disciples of Jesus Christ are supernaturally positioned to clearly speak truth into situations that call evil, good . . . and good, evil. If they resent your revelation or accuse you, continue to speak clearly, simply, and with authority. Remember, until you’ve said it at least three times, most people have not really, truly heard you.
Continue to speak truth, but don’t forget to craft a combination of authority that comes from God’s Word and confidence that comes from your relationship with Him. That way, those who hear you are more likely to listen, and hear!
In relationships that don’t agree with what you believe, leverage your influence in what you have to say by serving them, opening the way for them rather than pushing them away. Offer them stunning solutions to problems and challenges at hand—solutions you receive when you pray for them.
As a believer, what you have to say is valuable. Do it with an open spirit and you’ll see the spirit of those around you begin to open to what you have to say. Ask God to give you both an entrance and an utterance—an open door to speak and the right words once you’re in!
Guard your heart. Keep your spirit open. Believe God that your words will be heard.
