The Bible makes it clear that “we will have trouble” in this world, especially as we make progress in being Bold for Jesus. In Nehemiah 4, the Jews were forced to fight as they rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. Just like them, the weapon is formed against us but it won’t prosper because we will succeed when we remember who we’re fighting for and who we are fighting with!
Romans 8:37 says, "...we are more than conquerors through him who loved us." We are called to have Bold faith for God. When we unify with others and look back at how God has provided in the past, God builds our faith and remedies our disgrace. We walk behind the Conqueror, reaping the benefits of His work.
Did you know your future will be determined by how faithful you are today? Galatians 6:7 says, "Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant." You can plan to be blessed by being generous and faithful. As you plant good seeds with a pure heart, God will reward you with more than you planted so that you can be even more faithful and generous to build God's Kingdom
We learn in 1 Timothy 2:4 that God desires that all people would be saved from their destructive ways. Lost people fear no one can help them. But God has placed you in their lives to bring them hope. Do you care that they are far from God? If not, why don't you? May God break our hearts and help us to care about what HE cares about that we might step out in BOLDNESS.
