Spirit-Led Speaking

"The Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou… and shalt be turned into another man" (1 Samuel 10:6).  "I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress" (Psalm 17:3).  "Open thy mouth for… the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction… She openeth her mouth with wisdom" (Proverbs 31:8,26).  "The angel of the Lord… opened the prison doors… and said, Go, stand and speak… all the words of this life… We are His witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost" (Acts 5:19,20,32). 

The day that we received our Savior,
Our life was new and in Him centered.
He changed our nature and behavior
Forever when His Spirit entered. 

The Gospel message which we heard
That rescued us from condemnation
Has made us stewards of God's Word
And messengers of His salvation.

Our prison doors were opened wide,
And by God's Spirit we were sent
To show Christ lives, who for us died,
To save all those who will repent. 

O Lord, as we are Spirit-led
To those You know are truly seeking,
We echo what Your Word has said,
On Your behalf, as we are speaking.
