“And there came a lion.” Normally we think of a lion not as a special blessing from the Lord but only as a reason for alarm. Yet the lion was God’s opportunity in disguise. Every difficulty and every temptation that comes our way, if we receive it correctly, is God’s opportunity.
When a “lion” comes to your life,
recognize it as an opportunity from the Lord,
no matter how fierce it may outwardly seem.
Even the tabernacle of God was covered with badger skins and goat hair.
No one would think there would be any glory there,
yet the Shechinah glory of God was very evident underneath the covering.
May the LORD open our eyes to see Him,
even in the temptations, trials, dangers, and misfortunes. C.H.P.
