By His Purpose We Are Bold
This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him.—Ephesians 3:11-12
In times of uncertainty, boldness will wane. Fear takes control and can deter us from a focus on God's purposes. We turn from God's purposes to our purposes, chasing our solutions out of fear. But we will soon discover that this does not build the confidence we seek. Instead of pursuing our purpose, we need to realize the Lord's purpose. For in his eternal purpose, we discover our purpose, and through this, we discover the boldness and confidence we all want as men.
ASK THIS: What of your purposes is getting in the way of God's purpose.
DO THIS: Lay your purposes down.
PRAY THIS: God, I give up. I give up pursuing my way, my truth, and my life. Today is a new day. I am all yours. Teach me your purposes, and I will submit to your way, truth, and life.
PLAY THIS: Tim Hughes: Never Give Up.
