Staying Longer

“But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren.” Acts 14:2
“Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.” Acts 14:3

There was opposition here. People’s minds had been poisoned against them. I, myself, would want to leave, but they stayed a long time.

Lord, help me not to flee immediately in the face of opposition, but to stay bold in You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Bold In The Lord

Preaching the gospel
of our Lord Jesus Christ

no city they went to
had to ask twice

speaking boldly and bearing witness
to the word of His grace

granted signs and wonders
to be done in that place.


  1. The apostles not only preached a message of grace, they themselves also walked in grace which allowed them to be bold in the face of opposition.

  2. In this world, if we are walking in God’s will, there will always be opposition! We just need to accept that and set our face to God, not the world.

  3. It does make a difference to walk the talk. Thank you, Larry, and God bless you and your walk within His grace today!

  4. That’s so true, Ted. I’ve always heard that if there isn’t opposition then we’re not doing something right. God bless you as you walk out His will for you!

  5. Thank you so much. I can be flighty. Pray that I will be more steadfast.


  6. I know what you mean! Me too. So we will pray for each other . . .:) God bless you, wonderful woman of the Word, as you stay steadfast in Him!
