Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.

Proverbs 30:30 a lion, mighty among beasts, who retreats before nothing;

When most of us think of lions, we think of big, strong, fearless creatures. The Word of God makes reference to the righteous being as bold as a lion. It also mentions that lions retreat from nothing. Seeing these two references should give us a clue that God wants us to be lion-like.

When situations come our way, we shouldn’t back down; we should confront the situation as bold as a lion. We attack the situation with our faith. We boldly declare sickness to be gone in Jesus name. We tell chaos to go in Jesus name. We declare increase in our finances in Jesus name. All the while, believing like a lion, that the situation will back down or be destroyed.

Lions also hunt in packs. We too have the ability to hunt in packs. When we face a situation, the Word of God says we can touch and agree with two or three people about the situation, in the name of Jesus, and it shall be done by God (Matthew 18:19-20).

Why in Jesus name? Because that’s where our authority lies, that’s where our strength comes from; and He is our Lion who we look up to, being the Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5).

Be lion-like and back down from nothing.
