Can you imagine what it would be like if no one could stand against the words you spoke? If you read more of this story you will find that even after people began gossiping about Stephen he remained strong to the point that people said that when they looked into his face it was like a face of an angel. WOW
Are you struggling with your words?
Spend time with God, beg Him for wisdom and then only speak what you know God would have you speak. BUT stay strong and close to God and remember
what He thinks of you is all that really matters.
