Lessons from Madagascar

I am the Holy One living among you,
and I will not come to destroy.
For someday the people will follow me.
I, the Lord, will roar like a lion. Hos. 11:9b-10a

Sometimes a restless spirit is not a sign that we need rest, but that our domesticated spirits pace, like lions in a cage at the zoo. When we hear HIs roar we are meant to run after Him. But the allure of comfort, safety, provision, and admiration can make it harder to break out and rush toward the wild adventure the Lion of Judah calls us to have with Him.

Lord, You are no tame lion. Give me courage.
