An image of Aslan from the Chronicles of Narnia pops into my head whenever I think of Jesus as a lion. Aslan is not only powerful and just, He is gentle and full of love.
Think for a moment how surprising God is. Ann Spangler writes, “Who could have imagined God on a cross, who is a King and Servant, a Lion and a Lamb, a God whose justice is trumped by his mercy? Aren’t you glad that God’s ways are not your ways and that his thoughts are as far above yours as the heavens are above the earth?”
I sure am.
May you feel His mighty arms around you this week. May His fierce protection and gentle love find you in every situation and every minute of your day.
