Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 4 (day seven)
But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak… -2 Cor. 4:13
I speak what I believe. I do what I believe. I sing what I believe.
Jesus says it like this: For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. -Matthew 12:34
No matter what happens to us, no matter how our circumstances change we will speak what we believe. Paul was the perfect example of faith here. When things got tough he sang in that spirit of faith, he kept preaching, he shared the story of the Gospel with whoever came his way even in the worst of times.
May we have many dark nights like Paul: …threw them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them… Acts 16:24-25
