Are You Bold?

are you bold bring on the lion's den Reading Time: 2 minutes

Today as I was praying about the future of my writing journey, I asked the Lord for a boldness to write what He says. When I was younger I was very bold and arrogant, as I have aged it feels like I have lost my voice and the confidence I once had.

No sooner had I gotten the prayer out of my mouth the Lord said that

Bold is

B – Bring
O – On the
L – Lion’s
D – Den.

He showed me that boldness happens once you enter the Lion’s den not before. Anyone can be bold outside the door. 

He also showed me that

Bold is

B – Believing 
O – Outwardly the
L – Lord
D – Delivers.

Being bold implies taking action and believing that the Lord will honor his Word (Isaiah 55:12). Being bold implies that we live our inner beliefs outwardly, there is nothing hidden (Luke 8:17, Matthew 10:26 and Mark 4:22).

It means we are not ashamed of the Gospel (Romans 1:16-17), it means we are not afraid to speak the truth. We may be fearful but fear of man does not cause us to back down (2 Timothy 1:7).

We are Bold.

B – Bible
O – Open
L – Loving
D – Daily

Being bold means that we love well even if it is not popular. It means we live by the Word of God not the words of man and the constant streaming of endless news (Matthew 4:4). It means that we renew our minds daily and we begin to think like God thinks not the world (Romans 12:2). It means that we take a stand on the Word of God and declare its truth.

We are Bold, so

B – Bring
O – On the
L – Lion’s 
D – Den.

Watch the Lord work, watch Him make His name great among the nations, watch Him deliver, watch Him shut the mouths of the lions and watch Him fulfill His Word.

Look for Him in unexpected places. Listen for His voice in a new way. Seek Him like you never have before. Stand and watch the Salvation of the Lord.

We are Bold because He is I AM (Exodus 3:14)
