Proverbs 28:1 (KJV)
The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
Eleojo entered her office and thanked the Lord for a brand new day. She wanted to sit down on her chair when she saw the charm and dead tortoise on it. She was so shocked that she screamed â€˜Jesusâ€™ at the top of her voice. Minutes later, the man who placed the charm came to her office. His name was Sani.
Sani: Good morning, madam. I just heard you scream. Hope all is well?
Eleojo: (already comfortably seated on that same office chair) Good morning sir. Iâ€™m fine. How is your wife?
Sani: (perplexed to see her seated on the chair and looking so relaxed) Iâ€¦ I… heard you shouting. I…
Eleojo: I saw these charms in my office (pointing to the dustbin). The initial shock made me scream so loud. Iâ€™m sorry for alarming everyone.
Sani: but why are you sitting in the same chair you saw the charm. Shouldn’t you avoid it?
Eleojo: God that is in me is far greater than the spirits that follow charms. Waitâ€¦ how did you know it was on my chair?
Sani: Iâ€¦ Iâ€¦ just guessed. Iâ€¦
Eleojo: (cuts in) the person who put it on my chair did so to hinder me from my seat in this office. I will not cooperate with that person.
Eleojo got the promotion the following week.
Eleojo was bold because she was filled with the Spirit and conscious of her righteousness in Christ.
Many Christians are not bold because their consciences are defiled with guilt. You need a clear conscience to be bold like a lion.
Go into today remembering that all power in heaven and on earth now belongs to Christ (Mat 28:18). His people live by this truth and do not fear the power of the enemy.
