The Lion of Judah roars and we respond. We always respond – we can’t help it. It may be running away in fear, it may be running towards Him in anticipation. The wind of His roar pushes back the sin, motivations and excuses leaving us laid bare before Him. It’s painful. It’s healthy. It’s good. His roar isn’t always scary, He roars in victory over us chasing away our doubts, signaling our enemies we are His. His roar is perspective, it’s protection, and it’s a call. We can answer it or we can run from it but it doesn’t change the fact that He roars, but we have to be listening for it. 

When we only see a picture of a lion roaring it looks a bit like He is yawning to us. It isn’t scary, it doesn’t command a response from us, and we can easily walk by and not hear His roar. We have to experience the live roar of the Lion to changed by it. 

Are you framing the picture of the Lion or are you living with Him?

Thanks so much for stopping by - I'm delighted to meet you thru The Gypsy Mama! This is such a great post - as a Christian, I've probably experienced all of these responses to the lion's roar at one time or another in my life!

great post! We just watched Narnia {again} and this post reminded me of the power of Aslan's roar: God's power. One of my life goals is to hear a lion roar in the wild.
