LIVE BOLD. “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13
Demola was extremely shy and he had always been that way; he just couldn’t face any kind of crowd. One day he was nominated for a 3-month long training that had to do with money management by his office. Two days after he came back his boss informed him that he would be doing a presentation to the whole office based on what he had learnt.
Demola froze when he heard this and his heart leapt a beat; how was he going to be able to stand and present in front of 180 staff, including the executive management? As the day of the presentation came, the more he lost confidence.
He took his seat in the hall and watched his boss step up to the podium. His boss spoke about why Demola had been selected for the training and all but Demola wasn’t listening. The only thing he heard was when he was called to the podium.
His feet had turned into jelly as he stood up. He said a silent prayer, “Holy Spirit help me.” Suddenly he was full of unusual courage and confidence; the presentation went without a hitch.
The Holy Ghost imparts us with boldness; not being bold will rob you of opportunities. The same Apostles who ran away and deserted Jesus were the same ones who spoke with boldness when they were brought before the temple leaders a few weeks later.
Point to ponder: - The Holy Ghost imparts us with boldness; not being bold will rob you of opportunities.
Question to consider: - Do you suffer from a lack of courage and confidence at times?
