Lions live completely in the open. The eat, sleep, mate, play, relax and lounge in the open. They hide nothing! They know that they are the most powerful animal of the kingdom and they relax in that knowledge.
Lionesses don’t live a life of fear. In fact they rest for approximately 21 hours of the day – at ease with their strength and resting in power.
RELAX – CONFIDENT – BOLD
We are an expression of what God created us to be and we need to walk in that light unafraid and unashamed!
Ephesians 5:8-10 “You groped your way through that murk once, but no longer. You’re out in the open now. The bright light of Christ makes your way plain. So no more stumbling around. Get on with it! The good, the right, the true—these are the actions appropriate for daylight hours. Figure out what will please Christ, and then do it.”
We know that we are supposed to be the light of the world, even through the darkness.
Romans 5:2 “By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.”
We are the “door keepers” of our lives. We need to allow God in but also need to be careful what other things we are allowing into our lives. God has already opened up the door to us – all we need to do is open our own door! And when we do, we’ll have the access to the Father that has always been there, we just didn’t realize it because our doors were closed!
Lionesses, like all cats, have the ability to take any light and refract and contain the light and become lit from within. And we should train ourselves to do the same thing.
As lionesses, we should find that light (Jesus) in any dark situation, take in His light and be lit from the inside! We need to have a vision that is not dependent on our surroundings, but is a reflection of the inward vision God has placed inside of us
WE ARE THE LIGHT!
This month, let us walk in our light! Let us be Bold, Confident and Relaxed knowing that as his children we have the light within us to shine bright from within….in the darkness.
SHINE BRIGHT SISTAS!
