“Beloved. A lion doesn’t have to announce he is a lion. He is the King of beasts.
The creatures cower in His Presence. A warrior doesn’t have to announce he is a warrior. He just shows up and the enemy trembles. The Fear of God is upon you, My Child.
My Glory is upon you. And you will not have to announce who you are for you are marked with the Precious Holy Spirit. The enemy sees and is afraid.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, and but My Righteous are as bold as a lion. You shall not turn away from the attacks of the enemy for you are hidden in Christ. You can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous in the heat of battle, and do not run from the enemy. For I AM with you wherever you go.
Be confident in your King. You also are a king and priest unto your God. Trust in My Strength. My Strength is made perfect in weakness.
Do not back down in the face of danger — but rise up in the Power of My Might. I make you bold and stealthy, the enemy will not even see you coming.
And I shall fill your mouth with a ROAR and a WORD. It is a Sound that decimates the enemy.
The Glory Storm and the Wind shall make a NOISE in the enemy’s camp and I shall bring CONFUSION upon them.
And I shall deliver you from your enemies and lift you up above those who rise against you; I will deliver you from the violent ones.
As it is written, “The LORD shall go forth as a Mighty Man, He shall stir up His Zeal like a man of war: He shall cry, yea, ROAR; He shall prevail against His enemies.”
As I AM so are you in this world. Roar, My Lion, Roar in Boldness with My Word in your mouth and watch the enemy flee!
For though you walk in the flesh, you do not war after the flesh: for the weapons of your warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strong holds.
Let your heart pound with excitement and leap with joy from its place. For you are MORE than a Conqueror through Him who loves you!
Listen! Listen to the Roar of My Voice, to the rumbling that comes from My Mouth. For I AM He who unleashes His lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth.
After that comes the sound of My ROAR; I thunder with a Majestic Voice.
When My voice resounds, hold nothing back, My Child! Let your faith ROAR louder than your fear!
For I have not given you a spirit of timidity or fear, but of POWER, LOVE and a SOUND MIND.
The Lion’s Voice thunders in marvelous ways; He does great things beyond understanding!
The wicked flee when no man pursues: but the righteous are bold as a Lion!
Pursue, My Lion, Be bold and courageous for you shall surely overtake them, and without fail recover all!”
LION FACTS : Lions do most of their hunting at night which gives them a huge advantage over their prey. They hunt more during STORMS as the NOISE and WIND make it harder for prey to see and hear them!! Lions are the only cats to ROAR together! Even young cubs join in. Their roars can be heard from 5 miles away! (World Wildlife Fund)
“The wicked flee when no man pursues: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1
The RIGHTEOUS : Romans 3:22 states that “the righteousness of God” is by the “faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe.” Having confessed Jesus as Lord and believed in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we were saved and we were made the righteousness of God. To be a child of God in this age of grace is to be righteous.
ARE AS BOLD AS A LION : BOLD : Strong’s Hebrew 982: Confident, secure, safe, have no care or fear; showing an ability to take risks; confident and courageous. Not hesitating or fearful in the face of danger.
“The Lion turns not away from any creature it meets with, nor mends its pace when it is pursued, but walks on intrepidly, and oftentimes lies down and sleeps in open places, and as securely as in woods and dens, being devoid of all fear; hence the heart of a valiant man is said to be as the heart of a lion. (Gill’s Exposition)
“Courageous and resolute, having the testimony of a good conscience, and assurance of the divine favor and protection, and the supports and consolations of the Holy Ghost.” (Benson Commentary)
STEALTH: slow, deliberate, and secret in action or character. Move in a way that is secret and quietly careful.
