In my high school history class, I usually didn't raise my hand to answer or volunteer to participate during class. I would wait and let someone else answer just to see if what I believed I heard in my spirit from God was correct. Life in high school was more interesting that way.

One day, my teacher asked for volunteers to act out a mock court trial. He needed a judge, two lawyers, and two witnesses. God kept telling me to raise my hand and I kept telling Him that I didn't want to. Finally, when my teacher asked for the second lawyer, I raised my hand. The whole class looked at me in wide-eyed surprise! Even the teacher said, "Hila, you're volunteering?"

I just looked at him and quietly said 'yes', because I couldn't understand why God wanted me to do this. He had never asked me to do anything like it before. After the teacher explained what the case was about, he told us to prepare 5 or 6 questions for the next day.

At home that evening I reminded God that He was the one who wanted me to be a lawyer in my history class. I got out a blank piece of notebook paper and asked Him what the first question was. He gave me 5 questions and the exact answers the witness would say. As He spoke in my spirit, I wrote them down.

The next day when my turn came, I walked up to the front of the class where the witness was sitting and asked him the first question. I silently read along on my paper as the person answered the question word for word. Without hesitation, I asked the next question and again I read along silently as he answered that question. This continued until I had asked and heard the answers to all my questions. Of course, after a couple of questions and answers, the class started to gasp and wonder how in the world I could have known what the person would say so that I could ask the next question without hesitation or thought each time. I didn't know, but God knew.

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
