Wisdom and Worship -Day 28
“The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 280:1 NKJV
Boldness is the willingness to take risks and act innovatively; confidence or courage. Boldness is a virtue that successful people seem to have in common. The ability to take well calculated risks. There are so many great ideas that are out there that never see the light of day because they were never put in motion. It takes boldness to start a business, learn a new trade, exercise, change diet, get rid of habits, go on a date, study a new book, relocate to a new country… Abraham the father of faith left his country for a new place he had no idea existed without a map or GPS but he trusted that God had made ready a place for him.
There are steps God is asking you to take today that you need to step out in faith and boldness like a lion. There is so much joy for you at the end of the tunnel. Don’t let the absence of immediate results and gratification stop you from moving today. Go out and conquer your fears because you are more than a conqueror.
Lastly boldness is not the absence of fear and anxiety. Boldness is acting inspire of fear and anxiety because God is with you. The reason for our fear is that we recognize that we can’t do it on our own. Our ability is not of ourselves but of HIM that calls us. So go with God today and accomplish all that God has planned for you.
“4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
”Psalm 23:4 KJV
Father, I thank you for making me as bold as a lion. Though I am faced with intimidating challenges, I fear nothing because you are with me. I take rest in your comforting arms because you go before me all the days of my life. Amen
