THE RIGHTEOUS ARE AS BOLD AS A LION

 

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.”  Proverbs 28:1

That one-line proverb can be quickly read and forgotten; but one frightful night it became a memorable experience.   I was walking alongside a solitary Quonset hut with the intention of unlocking its front door to prepare for a fellowship meeting and Bible Study.  To my left was a large vacant lot and the moonlight exposed a man running toward me.

Instead of being terrified, I was filled with peace that cannot be described as I  listened to these whispered words:

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.”  Proverbs 28:1

Because of Jesus, I was bold as a lion.  I did not scream or run; but walked calmly at my normal pace.  The man fell.  He got up and continued running toward me.  He stumbled and fell again.  Then he got up, turned around and ran away.

Today, I am old --and the Quonset hut is gone.  The word of God remains the same so that another generation can know Him and His power to help them in their time of need.
