Proverbs 28:1 The wicked run away when no one is chasing them, but the godly are as bold as lions.
Lions are one of God’s most beautiful creations, but at the same time they are very dangerous animals. Christians are to have lion-like characteristics for example boldness, strength, diligence, leadership, and determination. Throughout Scripture lions are used as similes and metaphors for good and bad.
The Lion has the spirit of leadership, attitude. He has an attitude that makes him different than followers. The lion exhibits that attitude. We have to cultivate the same attitude as lions has because the lion has been given the same attitudes as God has.
Don't be afraid of the reflection in the mirror. Once you overcome that reflection, you've done it.
How does the lion become the king of the jungle... his mentality.
Proverbs 30:29-30 There are three things that walk with stately stride–no, four that strut about: the lion, king of animals, who won’t turn aside for anything.
Samuel 1:22-23 From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan turned not back, and the sword of Saul returned not empty. Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
Judges 14:18 So before sunset of the seventh day, the men of the town came to Samson with their answer: “What is sweeter than honey? What is stronger than a lion?” Samson replied, “If you hadn’t plowed with my heifer, you wouldn’t have solved my riddle!”
Isaiah 31:4 But this is what the LORD has told me: When a strong young lion stands growling over a sheep it has killed, it is not frightened by the shouts and noise of a whole crowd of shepherds. In the same way, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will come down and fight on Mount Zion.
Christians are to be bold and strong like lions.
