Don’t Be Intimidated

Some of you might be feeling discouraged, afraid, worn out, or intimidated by the Enemy and his minions. I hope this helps.


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. 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).

  2. “May the Holy Spirit use these words to minister to you, as they have to me, and give you strength to stand.” Your prayer is so appreciated, and encouraging. So, I thank God for your listening heart and for sharing His words!

  3. I don’t want any Christian to be intimidated out of sharing their beliefs and the reasons behind their beliefs anymore than anyone else, but was it really necessary to interpose a one-size fit all stereotype of atheists in these points?

    • Thanks for taking the time to comment. Seriously, I appreciate it.
      But to your comment, the only thing I wrote that specifically mentioned atheists was “…so-called atheists who only want to justify their lusts…” I understand that there are those – maybe you – who are atheists for different reasons. The above characterization was not meant to be a blanket one.

      • Well, yes, it was only one line, but it was a compound line. “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.” It may not have been meant as a blanket statement, but it is generally, the characterization I often hear apologists tell their audience about people who disagree with them. To be sure, especially with the internet, that characterization is not always unfair in every case. Still, like I said. It was just, unnecessary. My point is it unhelpful, even potential harmful, to discussions. Anyways, that is my two cents. Thank you for taking the time to reply.

  4. Reblogged this on Truth in Palmyra and commented:

    There are a lot of things Christians think we should be intimidated by; in fact, our adversary the devil loves it when we let the fears of this life get the best of us. Great thoughts here from brother Anthony Baker on NOT being intimidated. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy!

  5. I found your blog through Wally’s! So glad I did. Excellent post! Have dipped into some of your other posts. Lots of excellent stuff here! Thank you!
