Be Bold in Your Witness

Have you ever experienced something so strong, so pure of heart and moving that it pushes you to be bold?

Do you ever think that the Lord calls us to stop speaking from the safety of our homes and brings us to stand on a mountain crying out to the world a testament of faith?

Life lived in quietness can be a calling, your witness as a legacy of peace and meekness to the generations coming from behind. Your quiet service can leave a lasting impression for those who look for something tangible and humbling.  For we are called to meekness, and it that we will produce fruit.

Sometimes life is lived on the edge, a daring adventure with the world as witness to your grand feats, life changing stories and amazing opportunities to reach the masses. The world isn’t too big or too frightening for your race in faith and tenacity.

Then there’s the rest of us. We wait in the shadows of those who seem strong while sometimes wanting to sink back into the assumed safety of the walls of those who serve small. We want to be more, do more, and live out loud, but never seem to have the right words, right connections, or perceived wisdom. So we continue to wait.

What if we weren’t really called to wait? We may need to have a question answered, direction, or opportunity, but in that waiting, why can’t we take up our cross right where we are standing and further the Lord’s work right there? Why do we have to wait for the mountain to move or the oceans to rise before we can become bold?

Be bold now! We can do it in our meekness and we can do it in grandness. Boldness isn’t just for some people and the rest sit on the sidelines, cheering them along. Our witness shouldn’t live in the shadow of another. The Lord doesn’t tell us to be idle until the gas tank empties or fills. Move now.

2 Corinthians 3:12 ESV

Since we have such a hope, we are very bold

Boldness may look different from one of us to the next, but the work that the testimony of faith leads to accomplishes what the Lord set out for us to complete. He will provide discernment and protection when we place our hope in Him.

Ephesians 6:19 

And also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel

Instead of waiting for moments of encouragement, peril, or grief to propel us to go reach the lost, we can move now. Words and actions, small or big, can light a fire of hope and joy in those who are waiting to be reached. Revival can happen and may be waiting on you to set it into motion. Don’t let any moment pass you by.

  1. Such a great reminder for this Monday morning as we start our week. I have so much to be thankful for the time in my life in which God allowed me to grow in my faith and in return being bold. This week I pray that God will allow me to be bold!
