“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28: 1)

Standing with righteousness, as the upright and noble creation of God, we can easily be bold. Through this conscious connection with the divine reality of being—our own natural goodness and kindness and decency—we can be confident in all that we do.

This is not arrogance or human bravado. It is that certainty of the lion, his innate recognition of power and dominion, because of who he is. We can have this same assured state of being as we act in accord with our true nature. Our goodness gives us power that is not pretense, but simply, trust.

On the other hand, those who may agree to evil suggestions or behave at odds with their own higher selfhood, may appear fierce, but they have no power. They don’t have the strength of righteousness to stand on, and so they may run away in times of trouble and even when they are not threatened. The awareness of guilt or wicked intentions can bring out that unnatural paranoia.

But the rock of righteousness is in each one of us. We have the ability to recognize this fact and to confidently, boldly, walk forth and face life without fear. For we know who we are—the very expression of Almighty goodness, Life, and Love.
