Bold like a lion…

What do YOU see?

“The wicked run away when no one is chasing them, but the godly are as bold as lions.”[Prov. 28:1 NLT]

“Then everyone--the kings of the earth, the rulers, the generals, the wealthy, the powerful, and every slave and free person--all hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains. And they cried to the mountains and the rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of the One who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb’.” [Rev. 6:15-16 NLT]

What are your thoughts when you look at this image?

I could be really spiritual here and say, “the power and glory of the Lord! Awesome!”

But…truthfully, when I see this picture I see every unclean thing within me and I am confronted with His purity and righteousness. What my heart and mind must remember, and more importantly must accept, is the Blood of Jesus, shed at the cross to cover my sin.

“And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter Heaven's Most Holy Place because of the Blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place.” [Heb. 10:19-20 NLT]

Knowing our identity in Christ and what He has done for us is what keeps the Armor of God in place.(see Eph. 6). Come on! The enemy knows when God’s Armor is slipping and we’re trying to hold it up with “carnal suspenders”! These suspenders may stretch for awhile but they fail every time because we can't battle spiritual enemies in our own strength and win!

Remember, He is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah who emboldens our hearts. He is the Lamb of God and worthy of our praise. Let us, therefore, carry this vision to a world that may see only clouds.


​Love ya,
