No Tame Lions Here

Today’s devotional, re-posted from Christine Caine, calls us to break out of our comfort zone and join the adventure.

 

“Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end would increase abundantly” (Job 8:7 NKJV).

One day I went to the zoo with my family, and as I walked past the lion cages, I realized something that fascinated me.

The lions were extremely quiet.

They were completely tame and domesticated. And when I noticed this, I received a revelation. I told my husband,

lion“This is what happens to many of us in the church. Jesus created us to be untamed, to be wild, to be undomesticated for the cause of the King and His Kingdom. But we get into the cage of religion, and we start to assume this certain persona. We become safe, nice and domesticated.”

And then I heard Jesus tell me,

“I did not give my life and rise again from the dead just so that you can live a nice, little, safe, comfortable, complacent, ordinary life. I called you to live a faith adventure. Your latter days can be greater than your former days, and the best is yet to come!”

Jesus Christ is calling me and YOU onward to a faith-filled adventure! What is ahead of you is far greater than what’s behind you!
