So don’t throw away your confidence—it brings a great reward. 36 You need to endure so that you can receive the promises after you do God’s will.
37 In a little while longer,
the one who is coming will come and won’t delay;
38 but my righteous one will live by faith,
and my whole being won’t be pleased with anyone who shrinks back.
39 But we aren’t the sort of people who timidly draw back and end up being destroyed. We’re the sort of people who have faith so that our whole beings are preserved. (Heb. 10:35-39, CEB)
We are in a day when the Body of Christ needs a new boldness. I know I need more boldness. I need to march forward in the promises of God, boldly declaring the promises he has given me.
Lord, do not let us shrink back! Let us declare your strong word!
This has been our theme in our leadership retreat this year. We need to move forward with BOLDNESS! Hear us, O God!
