The righteous is bold as a lion.

“The wicked flee when no man pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.”- Proverbs 28:1.

Vision has the power of transforming a weak person to a place of significant position.  And  because vision has a magical touch  through which the timid  goes beyond ordinary to the extraordinary, it becomes a magical quality that is often admired by all.

Magic was what Robert Fritz, in the path of least resistance, defined as seeing the result without seeing the entire process leading to those results.

In life there are some results that requires boldness to acquire. It takes boldness and having a right standing with God to achieve great things of significant measure.

The Bible (Prov. 28:1) talks about the flight of the wicked and the boldness of a lion. Lions are symbols of strength and courage. They are common symbol for royalties and stateliness. The Ancient Egyptians respected lions as their war king, hence, we hear the term; “king of the Jungle.” When it comes to describing lion, we think of strength, power and fierceness and that same strength and characteristic is what is used to describe a child of God. And because it is a righteousness obtained by God for us. We can be bold about it.

A righteousness obtain by Christ for us through his death on the cross. And the righteousness we have obtain from our neighbors through the calm, cool, calculated and honest lives we have lived with them. And because we are righteous, we can be bold in the face of oppression and intimidation.

Let’s move with the truth of the word, knowing that we are bold as lions.
