BE BOLD TO ACT YOUR FAITH, FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US THE
SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND (2 TIMOTHY 1:7)

I’m always so inspired each time I study the accounts of
certain characters in the Bible who displayed outstanding boldness and courage
in the face of fierce oppositions. David, for one, as a young lad, fearlessly
challenged and defeated Goliath, who according to the Bible terrified the whole
of Israel, including Saul the king (1 Samuel 17:4-11). How come David was able
to defeat Goliath? He certainly wasn’t the only one that knew about God’s
covenant with Israel, but he was bold to act his faith, on the basis of that
covenant.

It’s not enough that you know and believe what God has said
about you in His Word, you must consciously take action, on the basis of that
knowledge! You must be bold to act your faith! Faith is action added to the
Word of God that you have heard and believed. If there’s no action, then
there’s no faith, for faith without corresponding action is dead (James 2:26).
The Christian life is a participation in divinity, and to be able to experience
this to the full, you must be bold to act your faith! You must recognize and
take advantage of the dynamic ability of the spirit that’s at work in you.

The Apostle Peter understood this and boldly commanded a man
that was lame from birth to rise up and walk: “Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: in the
name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk” (Acts 3:6).
And when it
looked as though the man wasn’t going to respond, Peter, the Bible says, “took him by the right hand, and lifted him
up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping
up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and
leaping, and praising God”
(Acts 3:7-8).

The Bible says, “The
righteous are bold as a lion”
(Proverbs 28:1); there’s a supernatural power
at work in your life that produces divine courage. So like Peter, be bold to
act your faith today! Be bold to address satan and negative circumstances in
the Name Of Jesus Christ and expect a change.

CONFESSION

My Heavenly Father has not given me the spirit of fear but
of power, love and of a sound mind; therefore I’m bold today to act my faith; I
function with the ability of the Spirit today for the Spirit of God is working
in my life, causing me to have divine courage and confidence, in the Name of
Jesus Christ. Amen!

  1. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
