*CONQUER THE LION…!*
*MONDAY, 22 AUG 2022*
“The Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid” (Judg 14:6).
Once Samson was confronted by a young lion.The roaring lion we may be facing is could be a lion-like person, problem or situation, but let us be of good cheer, for, as Caleb said about the giant-like people they saw in the land of Canaan, “they are BREAD for us… THE LORD IS WITH US” (Num 14:9).
God was with Samson and he was able to kill the lion, as if it had been a kid. When God is with us, the lion that we are facing is nothing but a kid. However, if God is not with us, even a kid can be as terrifying as a lion. A lion rose against David when he was young boy, but he slew it. In this modern world, young people face lion-like temptations in their flesh, but often, instead of conquering them, they are conquered by them.
Samson’s victory in his first trial greatly strengthened his faith. “Each victory will help you some other win,” sang one man of God. Our great trials are intended to greatly strengthen our faith and make us great in the sight of God. Trials are sent, not to pull us down, but to raise us up to a higher pedestal for the glory of God.
Dear reader, let us overcome the lion in our life through anointing of the Holy Spirit that is in us. Let us not forget that the Lord is with us.
I Peter 5:1-11 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed. Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind. Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Let us pray: Heavenly Father we praise you and give all glory to you Lord. Thank you for sending your son Jesus Christ to save us from hell punishment. Thank you Jesus Christ for taking my sin punishment on the cross and sheded your Holy blood to make me worthy to enter your kingdom of heaven. I ask forgiveness for all the sin I have done in my life in the name of Jesus Christ. Thank you Holy Spirit, help us to conquer the lion which is coming in our life like a problem and also help us to obey God’s word given in Holy Bible. In Jesus precious name I pray. Amen
– *PRAISE THE LORD*
Amen thank you Jesus
