God Will Give You Something to Say
“Do not be concerned about how you should defend yourself when they bring you before the synagogues, the rulers, and the authorities,” Jesus said. “Say whatever is given you in that hour, for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit,” he said.

Not Anxious Rehearsal
The Holy Spirit’s promise does not include the creation of new Scriptures in our minds; rather, the Spirit works by bringing to mind biblical truth that we have already treasured in our hearts, and we are to listen to Christ’s words and give them a home in our minds.
How the Spirit Works
“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Jesus quoted Scripture frequently, and according to Matthew 4:10, this is how the Holy Spirit taught him “in that hour.”
Always Being Prepared
In the first century, the Holy Spirit inspired the Scriptures; in this century, he moves us to love, read, understand, and store up the Scriptures; and in a time of need, he puts biblical truth to work by teaching us what to say.
It Is Supernatural
“The Holy Spirit will teach you what you ought to say in that very hour,” Jesus says (Luke 12:12). God is going to work for you. What you need right now is beyond you. You need the Holy Spirit, and Jesus promises he will be there.
