“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.”
There are no coincidences within the Word of God.
Every Word is there for a specific purpose. Every phrase and description is Divinely inspired with specific reason.
Lions are known as the King of the Jungle due to their immense strength and courage. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Solomon depicts boldness as the characteristic of a lion. This is the first mention of being bold; and refers to a sense of security for the righteous believer. We have no need to fear when we are on the Lord’s side.
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
The Strength of the Lion
Through Christ we have the strength to accomplish anything that is set before us. We need only submit our weakness to Him.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
The Courage of the Lion
With Christ by our side, we can have not only courage, but good courage. There is no need to fear because He will never forsake us.
“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
Boldness is a rare quality today.
How can we be bold as a Lion?
We must spend time with Jesus.
The boldness of Peter and John shows us that any of God’s children can boldly speak stand for Him. The people around them could tell that they had spent time with Jesus. Could the same be said of us?
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”
We must speak to Jesus so that we can boldly speak of Him.
Because they prayed, God showed up in a great way. He empowered them to speak the Truth boldly. Could the same be said of us?
“And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
Ask the Lord to give you bold Wisdom today.
