In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear).
- We are to strive daily to be in the Word of God. Practice makes perfect. The more we practice doing anything the better we become. If we practice learning and applying the Word of God, we build our spiritual muscles.
- Boldness is courage to speak on God's behalf; it's not respecting anyone more than we respect God. Once we learn what it is then we can act on it.
- To be bold we first must acknowledge God as Lord of our lives, and have a personal relationship with Him. Greater is He that's in me (God) than he that is in the world. With this knowledge we can stand fast to our convictions. God is the final authority, His Word is true.
- Just keep these things in mind; ponder them daily and in every situation you encounter and you will find the strength to speak boldly for God. Practicing this means you must remind you self of this everytime you are convicted to speak up for the Lord. Anything can be said in love and in a respectible manner. Also keep in mind that not everyone want to hear what is pleasing to God; but, He instructs us to teach in season and out of season. We must learn to speak in season and out of season. When the Holy Spirit convicts you to stand firm and speak; do so even if it is not popular. Everything you do, do it in love. Continue to obey God, He will keep you in all that you do.
Love you sweetie.
