This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Hebrews 13:6 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about confrontation and how God will give you the strength to boldly confront the person, situation, or issue you may be dealing with.
Recently, I read in the book of Acts that Peter healed a layman who had been begging outside the beautiful gate for decades. Once Peter told everyone that the man had been healed in the power and name of Jesus Christ, nearly five thousand people turned to God.
However, when the leading priests of the day heard this, they were very disturbed. They immediately arrested Peter and called him before the council.
Even before the council, Peter was not afraid. He told them the same thing he had told the followers. It was as if his attitude was, “Yes, I said it, and I’ll say it to you again.”
With both confidence and humility, he boldly confronted the council which had the authority to kill him on the spot. The key is that Peter knew who ultimately had the authority over his life, so he was unafraid of the council.
If there is a person, a situation, or an issue you may need to confront today, do so knowing that God has your back. As you think about that, cling to these words: “So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:6 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, whatever the person, situation, or issue may be, go forth and boldly confront it.
