DON’T BE SILENT
Article by Joni Ames
If you are sitting in churches or conferences getting frustrated and just aching to make a comment on things the speaker says because things are not being said that you could add to everybody else’s sermon, you might need to get out there and do your own.
If you’ve got something to say, you will always be miserable until you say it. Do a blog. Start a home group. Do SOMETHING! But quit remaining silent.
Esther was told, “If you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:14)
If God put things to say inside of you and you don’t speak out and speak up, your life will not be fulfilled just sitting in a chair or a pew while everybody else talks. Frustration will always be your portion.
If you’re reading this, you’re already part of a worldwide “news team.” You already have a platform. Use it. Whether you write or whether you speak on it is up to you. But don’t be silent.
Don’t worry about the naysayers. You have a delete button and can use that too.
Mind your manners. Don’t throw up on somebody else’s page. Use your own. In fact, be mindful of how you say things even on your own page if you want people to continue to pay attention to what you have to say.
But it’s time to show up, not blow up. Don’t explode with frustration because you do not release what’s inside of you. It’s time to let your voice be heard as well. Don’t be silent in a generation where everyone’s voice can be heard, including yours.
Again, do it on your own page, not someone else’s. That is their platform, not yours.
Quit sitting in Sunday service being frustrated by wanting to finish someone else’s sentence or paragraph. Start writing your own. Or start doing your own preaching videos on your own platorm.
Who knows whether YOU have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?!
You may be one of God’s solutionaries and change agents that He uses to bring forth relief and deliverance in this season. Don’t hide it. Ride it.
Let’s go! It’s time!
