Topic: Time to Be Bold
Scripture: But the path of the [uncompromisingly] just and righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (brighter and clearer) until [it reaches its full strength and glory in] the perfect day [to be prepared]. The way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know over what they stumble. — Proverbs 4:18-19 (AMPC)
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional 10 September 2020 Message
Maybe you’re thinking to yourself, Joyce, I’m a timid, shy person—that’s just my nature. I don’t think I can change. But guess what? You may feel timid and shy, but you can still be bold and courageous.
I want you to know that even if you’ve struggled with anxiety, fear or low self-esteem for decades, you can take back the reins of your life and regain your confidence, one step at a time. As you start to replace the enemy’s lies that say things like, “You’re not good enough,” or “No one loves you,” with the truth of God’s Word, which says, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ” (see 2 Corinthians 5:21), “I have all the strength I need” (see Philippians 4:13), and “Nothing could ever separate me from God’s love” (see Romans 8:38-39), you’ll find your confidence increasing a little more every day.
The more you ask God to help you choose to believe the truth of His Word over the lies of the enemy, it will get easier and easier to be the person He designed you to be, and you’ll become bolder and bolder.
Prayer Starter: Father, please help me remember who You say I am, and to choose to believe Your Word over the enemy’s lies. Thank You for reminding me of the truth when I forget, and for treasuring me as Your child. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
