While talking to my dear prayer partner this morning the concept of unpacking the words that we hear from God in prayer came up. Ofetn times we may hear from God by the Holy Spirit through scripture or maybe in a conversation where you are talking about our dear Father whose is listening so lovingly. ” You will teach a lion how to roar” I heard the Holy spirit say this to me in prayer a week ago . I thought to myself ,Wow what does that mean and kind of went on to the next subject. Well it came back in our conversation this morning and my friend and I began to unpack the word. When we think of the roar of a lion what first comes to mind is sheer terror. Your mind can wander to the heart pounding possibilities fear presents. But there is a greater lion that possesses perfect love that casts out fear. The Lion of Judah our Savior Jesus! The lion of Judah is a forerunner , the leader of the pack of praisers. This kind of praise can reduce the terrible fear of a lion’s roar to a kitten’s meow. The question I ponder , what if we took on the perfect love of Christ in every moment, and that love so overwhelmed us with His presence ,power and authority that we would begin to ROAR in praise . That is exciting to me! Beloved you are a loved child of God and He will use all of us to teach a lion how to roar.
