Confidence = Boldness
I really enjoyed revealing a bit more of me with you yesterday as far as my deep love and compassion is concerned with my faith. Here is a small suggestion for all of us: We live in a world that appears to be more violent and murderous than any other time, which I am aware.
Therefore, as I share my readings based on my faith with you, please do me the honor and join in vis-a-vie sharing from your esteemed books that assist you in your faith.
There are so many that say that there isn’t that much difference between the Quran and the Holy Bible. And I have read some passages in the Quran that are similar. Therefore, seeing that there are so many different belief systems on earth rather than a person get angry or experience angst with me, how about sharing with me what it is that your book of faith says?
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership has righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate, says the Lord. Do not be partakers with them; for you were formerly darkness but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light…trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. And do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them.
He Himself has said, I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you…so that we confidently say, The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What shall man do to me? I will come with the mighty deeds of the Lord God. I will make mention of Thy righteousness, Thine alone.
The work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.
Stand firm…having girded your loins with truth and having put on the breastplate of righteousness. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world-forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. The Lord is with you…Go in this your strength.
Many people normally acquaint “boldness” “and confidence.” Try it!
