THE FORCE OF BOLDNESS PART V
“Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.” – Ecclesiastes 8:1
From our text today, wisdom is a facilitator of boldness. The wiser we become the bolder we become. Wisdom is seeing things the way God see them. It is responding to things the way it is prescribed from scriptures. Jesus Christ taught us that wisdom is hearing and doing whatever God says:
“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.” – Matthew 7:24-25
The more we hear the word of God and do them the more we manifest boldness in our journey of destiny. The rain, the floods, the winds and all elements of the weather of life cannot shake us as we become embolden because of the wisdom of doing whatever the Master says we should do. Brethren, no matter how we feel about scriptural instructions; no matter the opinions of anyone, doing what God says positions us to remain bold against the storms of life.
The storms of life are bound to come in different kinds of shapes and forms. It does not necessarily mean that the believer is facing the storm because of sin or disobedience, even if it is the case; the only cure is getting back to God in obedience. Obedience will always power our boldness against all oppositions.
Friends, no opposition can successfully stand against the boldness of a child of God that is anchored on obedience. All devils in hell know that behind the boldness of an obedient child of God is the Almighty; the custodian of all power. Psalm 62:11; Matthew 28:18; Luke 1:35.
The devils knows that he would never be successful in all his attacks against any believer who would not give in to fear. The devil knows that he would always fail regarding any bold believer. Until the boldness of a believer is broken; the believer cannot be subdued no matter how hard the enemy tries. Boldness manifests in confidence, determination and fortitude. The scriptures admonishes believers never to allow anything tamper with their confidence.
“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.” – Hebrews 10:35
We must keep doing what the word of God says; that is wisdom. As we grow in wisdom so we will continue to grow in boldness and become impossible cases for the devil and his cohorts. Wisdom is the pathway to glory. Proverbs 3:35. Boldness is the pathway to all-round victory. You will continue to shine in all areas of your life; the glory of God will ever be reflective in your life and destiny and you shall remain victorious in all battles of life.
