Title: Boldness: Stepping Into God’s Courage


Boldness is more than just confidence; it’s a courageous conviction that propels us forward, even in the face of fear and uncertainty. As followers of Christ, we are called to embrace a spirit of boldness that emanates from our faith in God’s power and promises. In this devotional, we explore the transformative power of boldness and how it empowers us to live boldly for the glory of God.

Scripture Reading: Acts 4:29-31 (NIV) “Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.”

Reflection: The early disciples faced intense opposition and persecution for proclaiming the name of Jesus. Yet, instead of cowering in fear, they prayed for boldness. They understood that boldness was not about relying on their own strength, but on the power of the Holy Spirit working within them. As a result, they were filled with courage and spoke the word of God fearlessly, even in the face of adversity.

Boldness is rooted in a deep trust in God’s sovereignty and faithfulness. It’s a willingness to step out in obedience, knowing that God is with us every step of the way. When we embrace boldness, we tap into the limitless power of God and His ability to accomplish immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).

Moreover, boldness is not just about speaking boldly; it’s also about living boldly. It’s about stepping out of our comfort zones, taking risks for the sake of the gospel, and standing up for what is right, even when it’s unpopular. It’s about living with conviction and integrity, even in the midst of a culture that opposes God’s truth.

As believers, we are called to be bold ambassadors for Christ, shining His light in a dark and broken world. Let us pray for boldness like the early disciples, trusting in the power of the Holy Spirit to embolden us and enable us to fulfill our God-given mission.


Heavenly Father, we thank You for the gift of boldness that comes from Your Spirit. Fill us afresh with Your Holy Spirit, empowering us to speak and live boldly for Your glory. Help us to step out in faith, trusting in Your promises and leaning on Your strength. Grant us the courage to proclaim Your truth and demonstrate Your love in a world that desperately needs You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
