Occasionally, a thought will stick in our minds, even for days or weeks. At least, that’s the way my brain works. Does your brain work that way?
During my devotions one morning, five words in the middle of a verse caught my eye. Those words were “with all boldness as always.” I mean, my eyes were glued to them. They kept coming back to me days later.
How bold are we? Asking yourself that question can make you ponder lots of things and past situations.
It takes boldness to accomplish great things. It requires someone to stand where no one else is standing — boldness to speak when everyone else keeps silent. Sometimes courage is what the crowd sees when you are standing alone or explaining a new idea or action needed.
For the Christian, that boldness comes from God. Boldness is the faith that makes you take a stand. It’s courage that makes Bible heroes stand out. It’s boldness that makes Medal of Honor recipients. It’s faith and boldness that God uses. They are like the fingers in a glove that fits snugly, together they get the job done.
When God wants to make a bold move, He covers his servant. He sees their faith to act; then He provides the protection and resources to respond. Boldness is what God is looking for in His people.
We gain confidence in our relationship with God when He speaks or directs us. That makes a lasting memory. He is assuring us that He will be with us always. He will not let you down because “all things work together for good.” (Romans 8:28 NKJV)
So be bold. Always, depend upon God!
