    A Prayer for Boldness
    By: Emily Rose Massey

    The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, but the righteous are bold as a lion" - Proverbs 28:1

    The last few years it seems there has been constant brutal violence and restlessness among people in our nation that has been ever-increasing and ever before our eyes and in our social media newsfeeds.

    So much hatred and violence toward fellow man, so much strife and division in our land, stone cold and bitter hearts towards anyone who may look different than us or think differently than us.

    Most definitely, when we see injustice, it should cause us to want to rise up and say something, yet our message as believers proclaiming the solution to such hatred and violence should be vastly different than what the world offers. The imagery in Proverbs 28:1 reveals such a contrast between the world and God's people:

    "The wicked flee when no one is pursuing,
    But the righteous are [a]bold as a lion" (Proverbs 28:1, NASB).

    As believers, we must be bold as lions and not shy away from speaking truth when the world may want to flee from truth.

    The problem is sin.

    The answer is the Gospel.

    It all begins and ends in the heart.

    Proverbs 28:1

    Deceit and the growth of sin abounds in our day. Church, we must take a stand against both for the sake of the Gospel! We must declare that the supreme demonstration of God's provision for sinful humanity is seen in the death and resurrection of Jesus.
