Vital signs- Sunday,January 16th, 2022



“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word.”

(Acts 4:29)

 

The word “servant” here is the Greek word that means “bondslave.” Are you a slave of the Lord Jesus Christ? I try to make it a habit every day to lift my hands in surrender to the Lord. To say to the Lord, “I am Your servant.” Boldness is not for rebels. You will never have boldness, true boldness, until you can say, “Now, Lord, grant to Your bondservant—to Your slave—boldness.”

When you do that, the Holy Spirit of God will give you courage. You know, if there’s any unconfessed sin in your life, any area that is not surrendered, you’re not going to have boldness. But you can wake up and say, “There’s nothing between my soul and the Savior. Lord, I am Your servant. I am Your slave. Jesus is with me. God the Father is above me. Holy Spirit of God, You’re within me. Grant me boldness to declare Your Word.”

• What remains in your life that you need to surrender to God today?

• How is that thing acting as an obstacle to boldness in your life?


Write down the things you need to surrender to God. Pray over these things, asking Him to help you surrender to Him and to receive bold obedience to Him.
