How does our prayer life look when those around us attack us for our faith? Peter and John were arrested for healing a man. They were told not to preach in the name of Jesus, but when they were with their brothers, they asked for boldness to speak His word.
I really like the way they leave it in the hands of the Lord. They could have complained but instead, they ask for boldness. When things don’t go my way or I feel like I’m being mistreated, I tend to complain to the Lord that it is not fair I go through this. Not only do I complain, but I tend to go back to my little box and hide. May we be like the apostles and go back to our group of Christian friends and ask for boldness. Not to hide in our little group but to be encouraged to go out and speak God’s word.
Asking for boldness to share His word.
