Spiritual Blessing: Boldness!

This Week’s Scripture:
Ephesians 3:12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Week’s Message:  Boldness!
Boldness means: freedom in speaking, unreservedness in speech, permission to speak openly and frankly, without concealment or ambiguity.
You could say it is real freedom of speech!

I am normally not a bold person, actually I am quite shy, however when it comes to spiritual things I am quite bold.  Why? Because this verse tells me that I have boldness.

In whom *[Christ Jesus our Lord] we *[believers] have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him *[Christ Jesus our Lord] 
Ephesians 3:12 KJV     (*text in [ ] added for clarification purposes.)

Because of my faith in Christ, I have a spiritual boldness that is in me.
I know that in Christ I have access which is a relationship with God and I know I  can go before God freely, fearlessly, as His child, anytime, anyplace.
I also have a boldness in prayer because I know I have the authority of Christ within me. I know I can pray boldly in His Name, with His authority and power because of my faith in Him.
This boldness is a wonderful Spiritual Blessing that all we believers have.
We should memorize this verse to remind ourselves daily of who we are in Christ, what we are blessed with, and then boldly walk in the many blessings we have received.

Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 31:6

ThisDueteronomy 31:6 Week’s Scripture:
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.  Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV


This Week’s Message:

This week’s verse is so uplifting and encouraging!
Moses is speaking to Israel just before they are to cross the Jordan River.
At this time they are feeling fearful because they are about to cross a river, go into a new land where they might face hardships, challenges and enemies, plus their wonderful leader, Moses, who has been leading them for many years, will not be going with them for God has chosen Joshua to be their leader.
They are facing a lot of changes and unknown circumstances.

Moses was telling the people:

  • Strengthen yourselves in mind, body and spirit so that you will prevail against all odds
  • Be brave and bold
  • Do not dread, tremble or resist
  • Do not stand in awe of the enemy

Why was Moses telling them this? He was reminding them of one important thing that they needed to never forget!
That the LORD=Jehovah = the existing One, the Supreme God, the One True God, Elohiym, is your God.
This LORD God goes with you, He walks with you. As you depart He comes alongside you. He proceeds with you.
As you move, He moves. He will not go away from you. He will not abandon you. He will not leave you alone.
So don’t be faint or feeble. Don’t become dishearted or worry or doubt.
He will hold you up. He will not fail and therefore, you will not fail.
As long as you walk with Him you will be safe and you will succeed!

What a great message for us today! Believers, this same LORD God is also our God. He has not changed. As He did for Israel He will do for us.
Memorize this verse and claim it for yourself! Do not fear nor be afraid as He leads and you walk with Him daily.
