Bold Living

Story Behind: Bold Like Lions Tee

June 14, 2021

“The wicked run away when no one is chasing them, but the godly are as bold as lions.” – Proverbs 28:1 (NLT)

A lion’s roar can be heard from five miles away. Don’t believe me, google it. When I read this, something clicked… I need to be more like a lion. My roar, my cry, needs to be the gospel and that message needs to be so loud and so bold that it sends the hills ringing, just like a lion’s roar.

The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery says, “Lion in the Old Testament evokes ferocity, destructive power, and irresistible strength. It is described as a bold and valiant warrior (Prov 28:1; 30:30).” Think about that — in the Old Testament, lions evoke ferocity. While this is often associated with negative connotations, this is the way we, as Christian women, need to think of ourselves in the face of sin. Having “destructive power” to protect our cubs and our pride (the lion family unit).

The definition from the DoBI continues by saying, “The lion is the epitome of proud self-sufficiency (Job 28:8) and yet cries to God to be fed (Job 38:39; Ps 104:21).” This is exactly how we want to be and how we want to train other women to be. Independent, protectors, strong, ferocious, and full of power, but HIGHLY reliant on God. That is why we designed this shirt. When you put this on, it is a reminder that you are brave, strong, and most importantly — BOLD AS LIONS; not from your own strength, but the strength you find in resting with the lamb of God. the DoBI finishes the explanation of Biblical references to the lion by saying this: “This kingdom will be ruled by a lion-like lamb.”

Are you ready to be bold?
