“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1). The Lord does not want us to be namby pamby, or wishy washy and lukewarm in our faith. “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:14-16). So don’t be a lukewarm Christian ! “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4: 16). “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6). Bold faith is the kind of FAITH that pleases God ! A word of caution, “Men of force are Men of faults.” Just make sure that what you are saying is backed up by scriptures, then go ahead with all Boldness. SEE: the teaching on “Meekness” in http://www.answersintheword.com/living-for-jesus/meekness/ for a good balance on this teaching . “Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” (Isaiah 45:11). This is a powerful scripture. The Lord tells us we can command him according to his WORD ! I always say “As you said Lord in your WORD to command you.” People will listen to you when you speak with Boldness and authority like Jesus did. Ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Ghost and give you power to speak the WORD with all authority ! You have got to speak like you know what you are talking about if you want people to really listen to you and understand what you are saying. “And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,” (Acts 4:29). “Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:4-10). So if you think you are just to weak, shy, timid, mild mannered, and just not strong enough, then you should read these verses and claim them, and act on them !

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen
