“Bold As Lion – Part 1”

Key Verse

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1

Text — Proverbs 28:1-5


The lion is the king of the forest, also known as the king of beasts (other animals). The lion is a natural hunter with powerful forelegs, teeth and jaws for pulling down and killing its prey. The characteristics of the lion make it to stand out in the animal kingdom. Some of them are:

Confidence – this animal knows the strength it has and this makes it confident/bold. – the lion is loaded with Courage – courage and is not afraid of any animal, even human beings. Fearlessness – it goes about seeking food without being afraid of any danger to its life. Powerful – this animal has a lot of strength and power to wrestle with any animal.

The righteous Christian is compared to lion because of these characteristics. He is bold, confident, courageous, fearless and powerful. He is not afraid of Satan and his agents because he knows what God has deposited in him. Pray that the characteristics will be seen in your life so that you can live the Christian life well and make it to heaven at last. Tomorrow we shall learn from the examples of some children of God who were as bold as a lion.
