Don’t be Intimidated

This is not going to be a long post, but I hope the point will stick with you the rest of the day.

Don’t be intimidated into silence with regards to your faith – share it anyway.

Don’t be intimidated by those who want to deny the reality or historicity of your faith, especially when the best arguments they have were learned in Philosophy 101, or from so-called atheists who only want to justify their lusts – their arguments aren’t as strong as they think.

Don’t be intimidated by politicians and political hacks, especially those who support every kind of deviancy known to man – they will have to answer to the High King of Heaven one day.

Don’t be intimidated by an increase in unexplained phenomena – the universe, and ALL that is in it, was created by God for His glory. Genesis wasn’t just an Earth thing.

Don’t be intimidated by those who believe truth is relative and morality is based on the flip of a coin – they’re afraid of a higher law.

Don’t be intimidated by children who think they know everything – cause they don’t.

Don’t be intimidated by a lack of experience or knowledge – get it.

Don’t be intimidated by a mountain – it can either be climbed or tunneled through…or moved.

Don’t be intimidated by the strength of others – if God be for us, who can be against us.

Don’t be intimidated by the unknown - it’s not.

1Pe 3:14-16  - But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy [are ye]: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; (15) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and [be] ready always to [give] an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: (16) Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

Rom 8:38,39  - For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, (39) Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2Ti 1:12  - For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

I don’t know what you’ve been going through, or what you’ve been facing, but I hope this helps. There were some other things I wanted to write about today, but I felt led to write this, instead. May the Holy Spirit use these words to minister to you, as they have to me, and give you strength to stand.

Don’t be intimidated – “greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4, the words of Jesus).

  1. Well said, well said, well said! Wow, what an adrenaline rush by the time I finished reading your post!

  2. I read this quote from Teresa of Avila the other morning: “Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you. All things are passing. God alone remains.”

  3. Amen! “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV). Peace, Linda

  4. Very enjoyable post! We all need to be reminded of this at times.

    • Josh, thanks for stopping by. I went and checked out your blog…impressive credentials, but can you play Othelo? Hmmm? What about checkers? Hmmm? And you know what? I have an attractive wife, too!

      Seriously, I’m humbled that you commented. God bless!
