“Bold As Lion – Part 2”

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 Bible shows us examples of men and women who were as bold as lion in their pursuit of kingdom assignment. Some of them are: Elijah who boldly challenged the prophets of Baal and defeated them. Daniel prayed even when the king issued a decree of death to who ever did. The lions became his friends in their den. The three Hebrew youths – Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego dared king Nebuchadnezzar as they refused to bow down to his golden image. Not even the threat of the burning fiery furnace shook their conviction. They stood firmly and boldly for God. They survived thefire while the king’s messengers were burnt by it. David was even bolder than the lion. He slew a lion, a bear and Goliath the champion of the Philistines. His action brought honour to God’s Name.

Are you righteous? Are you bold? Righteousness comes through Jesus. Surrender your life to Him today; let Him become your Saviour and Lord and He will make you a righteous child. Boldness is part of God’s special gift to His children and He will bestow it on you. Rise up, be as bold as the lion and do exploits for God’s kingdom.
