God Guides - Provides

But as for me, how good it is to be near God!
I have made the Sovereign LORD my shelter,

and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.”
Psalm 73:28

"I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do" (Psalm 73:28)
How do we tell everyone? That is the question.

I have seen preachers standing on the street corner but doubted its
effectiveness because no one was standing there listening. He was
just practicing preaching and edifying himself publically.

Some people talk only about God and their excitement for Him is
incredible and warranted but they aren't real anymore. They set up
a barrier to their humanness in exchange for a life of their spirit.
Which is fine for a while if you grow out of that.

There are some who are Christians and people know that. Those people
still are human in conversation and can talk about anything while
keeping the conversation and their life clean. They don't look down on
anyone and can talk to a drunk or a banker the same way. They don't beat
anyone over the head with the Bible or 'God said', they just relate to others.
But when the opportunity comes within an appropriate context they will jump in
and make a small statement that provides a ray of Christ to the unbeliever.

THAT is the type of Christian that we have forgotten to be.
That is the Christian like Christ.
That is the Christian I practice being in public and with others.

I believe that when we are willing to do whatever we believe God is asking us to do,
then He will provide the opportunity and give us the words to speak.
