I've never thought of myself as bold or brave. A few months ago I was reading through Proverbs and studying what the Word says about the righteous. Since I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21) what His word says about the righteous is true about me (not because of me). Proverbs 28:1 stood out to me:
....And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. Acts 4:31 I think I will need to write more about this tomorrow!
Since that time a few other verses have also become alive to me about boldness. Think on these today as you find time and let God's word become alive and active in every area of your life. He is renewing my mind as I trust the Holy Spirit to make me more bold!
