28 May 2015 – by Dr. Eugene May
I was reading the Book of Proverbs and these words caught my attention: “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the RIGHTEOUS are BOLD AS A LION.” As I read these words again, I began to see how God wants us to live in this world. He not only called us “RIGHTEOUS” but He said that we are to be “…BOLD AS A LION.”
“BOLDNESS” is not something that we often think of when we consider ourselves. We are often reminded to “…walk HUMBLY with our God.” This is true, but often we confuse “HUMILITY” with “WEAKNESS.” In fact, I have often heard things said like this: “If you are a Christian, you will not stand in the face of opposition.”
God spoke of Moses with these words, “Now the man Moses was very HUMBLE, more than all men who were on the face of the earth.” I am quoting from a more modern version but the older version (King James Version) calls him “MEEK.” Moses was not “WEAK.” He stood in the face of Pharaoh in Egypt and declared liberty for the people of God.
Child of God, you are living in difficult times and you may be living in difficult circumstances. God wants you to be “BOLD” in the face of your enemy Satan. You are to stand in the face of Satan and command him to get his hands off of your family, your health, your wealth, your business, your job, your ministry, and anything else he may be attacking. You have the power of the “NAME OF JESUS” at your disposal, USE IT!
“Behold, I give you the AUTHORITY to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
