The Lion

Here’s something the Lord shared with me about two years ago:

We are the ones to open the doors. We have caged the Lion – allowing him access, when and only when we put His leash on and sedate Him. We have strapped Him down. His lack of movement is not simply a result of a lack of crying out for more of Him, but in failing to prepare to receive when the doors come open. On many occassions He has thrown open the “floodgates” only for us to pull out our parkas, umbrellas and boats to avoid getting wet. Crying for the flood will not be the be the only answer to our current plight….humbling our hearts and repentance for our sins are the steps of preparation for the flood. Do these things and when heaven opens next, you’ll be ready…

I guess that’s why TheCall was so awesome for me this weekend. It was as much preparation as it was crying out for more of Him…
