Stand Your Ground… “The wicked man flees though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1
Self-reliance crumbles when circumstances become grim. People without God as their guide run away in fear, but the righteous take heart and hold on to heaven’s inheritance. They are bold and remain strong because they see their Savior Jesus as the initiator and completer of the cause. However, as you remain poised in prayer to God, take the time to grow your leadership and give to others the resources they need to succeed.
Followers need a leader who is not caught up in self-preservation, but captivated by Christ. A bold leader is not preoccupied with an exit strategy. Rather, he or she is focused on how to process problems with creative solutions. A culture of confidence takes root when everyone is committed to thriving in excellence, not just surviving in mediocrity. Fear sees failure behind every challenge, but faith sees opportunity rise out of anguish.
Therefore, stand your ground with God. The enemy has no authority over you, especially your emotions. His is a phantom pursuit. Stay rooted in righteous acts with a hopeful attitude and Almighty God will bless your efforts. You are bold when you have been with Jesus. “When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13). Is my security in myself or in my Savior Jesus Christ?
