God is My Lion Tamer

Dear God,

You sure mention lions a lot in your word. They are used to describe good (Lion of Judah) and to describe bad (The devil as a roaring lion). People were thrown to the lions to be ripped apart and eaten. That is HORRIBLE. Isaiah 35 talks about lions not walking the streets. Proverbs speaks of sluggards and how they won't go out because there is a "fierce lion roaming the streets" (they used this as an excuse because they were LAZY....!)

A person can go crazy just thinking about stuff. I could probably ponder on lions and their significance in our lives all day long today. They are powerful and cunning and not to be taken lightly. I love that Daniel was thrown into the lions den and YOU shut those cat's mouths up and Daniel escaped death. The wonderful thing about that is that You will do the same for us too, whether a physical lion or the type of lion that we can not see.

Thank you for being the lion tamer in my life.

My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions.
