Topic: Boldness Over Fear

Opening Scripture: Proverbs 28:1-“the wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are as bold as a lion”.

There is confidence with righteousness. When you’re doing something wrong there’s this sudden watch you place over yourself to see if anyone’s coming or not, you get scared by every move.That’s how we are when we expose ourselves to sin. Friends, fear comes along with sin, when you dwell continually in sin, what you would confront and gain victory by your being grounded in righteousness, you fall out with, why? Simply because God and sin does not agree and we understand from the scripture that He has not given us the Spirit of fear but of love and of a sound mind(2tim 1:7).Who instills fear in us? the devil, that’s what he does best and he has access to doing such because you are dwelling in His territory that’s the territory of sin.
The lion is never afraid of His prey, that’s how the bible describes the righteous ‘but the righteous are as bold as a lion’. Even when the prey sees the lion from afar it tends to run away as far as possible because of fear of the unknown; the lion remains tops. Come to think of it, no animal dares play in the terrain of the Lion simply because it’s asleep. Even when it is subconscious it still remains the most dreaded. That’s how we are suppose to be in the midst of our enemies (pslm 110:2), by our sight alone they ought to flee, forces of darkness ought to dread us why because it has never been and would ever be that darkness overcomes light(1john 1:5). We can only operate in this realm of dominion when we dwell in righteousness.
Friends, it’s better to dwell in confidence than in fear. Righteousness is the way. If you’ve not accepted Jesus, you need to because He’s the way, and just incase you’ve fallen out you can return.There’s room for you, no matter how far you’ve gone, your ticket back is a heart of genuine repentance. God’s love you. Remain Blessed.

Lesson for the day-Sin brings fear it’s better to dwell in righteousness.God loves you he can take you back only if you repent geniunely so you can be counted worthy on the day of reckoning.
