Thoughts to Encourage (blocked speaking)
"When the Holy Spirit prompts us to speak the truth in love (as we are commanded to do) but we are inhibited and hold back, we need to find out where our conscience has been violated.
Without a clear conscience it is impossible to have faith in a given area and fearlessly speak the truth."
I John 3:21-22 "Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence (grk: faith and trust in God/freedom of speech) toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments (have a clear conscience), and do those things that are pleasing in his sight (one being we can speak the truth in love)."

I Pe 3:21 "The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ."
I Jn 1:6-10 "If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."
"How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? "
