God give us a boldness that allows us to risk it all for the things we believe in. Let us walk with a spirit of courage. Let your love cast out the fear that has held us hostage for too long. Build our confidence so that in this season of reckoning, we can show up and do the good work that you have called us to do. Mighty is your name and mighty is the spirit that lives within us.
Spiritual Warrior of the Day:
Colin Kaepernick’s tattoos are a roadmap to his faith. On his right shoulder, Psalm 18:39, “You armed me with strength for battle; you made my adversaries bow at my feet.” On his left bicep, Psalm 27:3, “Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.” On his left upper arm, “God will guide me.” And above his elbow, praying hands clasped with the proclamation, “To God Be the Glory.”
In case you didn’t know, this is a man of faith. And a man with this much faith is someone who is willing to risk it all. For that, we celebrate and uplift our dear brother Colin Kaepernick. Fist in the air. Knee to the ground. The story that we’re going to tell you is far beyond anything you’ve heard about this man, his work, or the Black men he represents.
