Hold Your Peace

Should you speak your piece or hold your peace? To “speak your piece” is to share a vital piece of information you know to be true. To “hold your peace” is to maintain silence, or refrain from speaking for the sake of a higher cause. It’s hard to hold your peace when you long to speak your piece. And especially in times of hurt or ill-treatment, it takes maturity, wisdom, strength, and faith to do so. Are you aggrieved in the face of aggravation or injustice? “Do not be afraid. Stand still… The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:13, 14). Be silent, but don’t silence your faith in God. For HE will not hold HIS piece on your situation. HE will speak for you, fight for you, and deliver you! Therefore avoid rash words or actions. Let God speak His piece, while you hold your peace.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
