Today in the 31-Day Challenge we read…
“Pray also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.” Ephesians 6:19-20
Although opportunities abound to share our vocational testimony, engage in spiritual conversations, and serve others in love, many people are held back by one thing: a lack of boldness. Sometimes it’s hard to speak up, risk a relationship, or stand in the face of opposition. The challenges are real. Even Paul, one of the boldest men in the Bible, asked for prayer that he would be as bold as he knew he should be. But when we ask God for help and step out with boldness, He can do amazing things through us. If we want to be part of what God is doing, then we need boldness. And if you lack it, just ask God for more and then act like He has already given it to you .. and He will.
The challenge for today is to make a Name List (see link) and ask God for boldness as you connect with your top five people.
Here are some further resources, tools, and blog posts to help you tackle today’s Challenge more effectively.
