The apostles had already received the power of the Holy Spirit after Jesus was raised from the dead and ascended to Heaven to rule with His Father. The were arrested when a crippled man was healed. They were released from jail and warned not to talk about Jesus. The were bold beyond believe already.
Yet, they prayed for more boldness and fearless courage. And God gave it to them.
God’s goal for us is to have fearless confidence. Jesus has given us the power of the Holy Spirit.
We may think we have enough. We don’t. May God give us more. May God give it to us now.
“And now they’re at it again! Take care of their threats and give your servants fearless confidence in preaching your Message, as you stretch out your hand to us in healings and miracles and wonders done in the name of your holy servant Jesus.” (Acts 4:29 MSG)
