Acts 4:29 29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. (NIV)

My college chorus director said “Sing loud enough so if you make a mistake you can hear it’s a mistake and you can correct it.”  So many of us are afraid to witness or share what we hear the Lord say to us because we are afraid we might be wrong.  We are afraid to hurt the witness or misquote.  God is bigger than any of our mistakes.  He has promised His word would not come back void.  We are to share God, His love, His word with boldness.  It is better to make a mistake by action than the mistake of inaction.  Let us speak with the boldness of God’s Holy Spirit and have the faith to know God is bigger than us and, if our motives are correct, will see to it that what we speak will be heard through the filtering of His Holy Spirit.
