15 But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.
16 But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.
21 And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly
Ehud was a bold man, he demonstrated boldness in the face of challenges, he did what few people were willing to do. By his hand God gave Israel a breakthrough and deliverance from the hands of their enemies.
Boldness is a precursor of Big breakthroughs. There are places you will never be in life, opportunities you will never handle until you summon up your courage and challenge the challenges of your life.
God gave similar charge to Joshua at the onset of the conquest of the Promised Land. Your promised land awaits you, but you will never step in without boldness.
O: Overcome your fear
L: Leap of Faith
D: Declare victory with your mouth
- Lord, remove fear from my life
- Lord help me to confront the enemies of my breakthrough with courage and in confidence.
- Disgrace and displace the ‘Eglons’ of life standing in my way.
