Be bold in the Lord
Be bold in your faith. Be bold in the Lord. When the storms in life swirl around you remember how David sang Psalm 138 with such joy because he was a walking testimony of this psalm. Join me as we unpack the biblical truths packed into Psalm 138:3.
It is thought to be David that wrote Psalm 138. It is grouped together with other Psalms that were known as "Songs of Ascent". This psalm was sung by pilgrims as they went up to Jerusalem to worship in the Temple.
Psalm 138 is such an encouraging psalm. We have discovered already through all our devotionals that David was well qualified to write the words of Psalm 138. He knew very well that when he was in distress and called out to God, that God heard him. God heard his prayer and he answered him by filling him with His boldness and David's soul was strengthened.
The words in this psalm are a promise for you and me too.

Biblical definition of boldness
What does it mean that God can make you bold?
Boldness is an attitude of strong confidence in God, such that godly things are said and done openly without fear of the consequences. (defined by simplybible.com)
Do you need God to strengthen your soul?
Trust Him to come and fill you with His Holy boldness. God fills us with the Holy Spirit who is bold and courageous. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity but of power, love, and self-discipline." You don't have to find your courage and strength on your own. You simply just have to invite God into your situation and to submit to the Holy Spirit
