You Too Can Kill Lions
"And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he tore the lion apart as one would have torn apart a young goat, though he had nothing in his hand. But he did not tell his father or his mother what he had done." Judges 14:6 NKJV
When a lion took a lamb from David's flock, he went after the lion and killed it. Then there's Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant warrior who did many heroic deeds; on a snowy day, he chased a lion down into a pit and killed it. Wow!
Lions are called kings of the jungle, they are strong and terrifying, virtually every animal flees at the sight of them, they instill fear. But instead of being afraid, Samson, David and Benaiah chased lions and killed them!
This is not about killing physical lions, but the things that represent lions in your life. Thus says the Lord, Fear not! The righteous is as bold as a lion, meanwhile, the devil goes about as one. In other words, you are the real lion! So there's really nothing to be afraid of! Stop running away from whatever has been roaring in your life, stealing from you and harassing you; stop running from challenges; yield yourself to the Spirit, let Him come upon you and enable you to tear lions into pieces and overcome every lion-like challenge in your life. Yes, you can!
I refuse to fear! Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! I am as bold as a lion; I am the real lion; I am more than a conqueror; I shall always win!
