The Wicked are cowardly in God’s sight
The wicked run away when no one is chasing them, but the godly are as bold as lions.- Proverbs 28:1 (NLT)
It is true that it is better to be a child of God than a prince of the devil. No man or being stands a chance against the Almighty God. Revelations, clearly lays out the end for the enemy. The devil will be defeated. He will be judged and then he will be cast out into a never-ending pit.
When you lead a life of wickedness, this too is your reward. The wicked will be judged, cast down and suffer the flames of the lake of fire in hell. Proverbs 28:1 is just one of many scriptures that also points to their true nature. That of a coward, who has no solid foundation to stand on.
Because of this, they cant help but become paranoid and run away at the whistle of the wind. Children of God are not like this. they put on the whole armor of God and challenge any adversary.
Eph 6:10-17 (NIV) …Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Choose to be a child of God and inherit the boldness that comes with being a King’s kid. Put away all wickedness, for your only inheritance would be death. When you are certain of your future, when you are certain of your inheritance; when you are certain that God has your back, you will be bold.
God has placed thousands of promises and nuggets in his word. He has laid out a plan for his people. many of the people in the bible who were afraid and doubted themselves, became bold once they aligned with God.
Ephesians 3:11-12 This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord. Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.
Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Joshua 1:9 I’ve commanded you, haven’t I? Be strong and courageous. Don’t be fearful or discouraged, because the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Corinthians 3:11-12 So if the old way, which has been replaced, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new, which remains forever! Since this new way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold. Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.
Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord. Be courageous, and he will strengthen your heart. Wait on the Lord!
