A little less talk could do us all some good

Actions speak louder than words..... Less talk, more action..... Let your actions speak for themselves..... Let the music do the talkin'! Ok, the last one's an old Aerosmith song, but you get the idea. It's hard to dispute cold, hard facts. The impression left when we allow the results to speak for themselves is most often ...."believability". Empowered by the Holy Spirit ...a couple of uneducated, unlikely men were asked "by what power or by what name did you do this [miracle, healing]?" Peter's response wasn't a self-defense. "Filled with the Holy Spirit" ....he simply presented the raw, obvious evidence of their actions, and that ...simply a result of God's will.
"But seeing the man who was healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition."

Acts 4:14
Leave the naysayers speechless. Allow the Father, through the Holy Spirit, to give you both words to utter, and drive the actions you may perform. You'll never have to second-guess.
