Not a tame lion




I've been thinking (always a dangerous thing;)) lately about how most of us are guilty of wanting to put God in a box. I guess it has been a few things that have happened lately where it seems like people want to limit God (and drawing closer to one another, but I digress) to fit in their schedule and fit in their tidy little box, so that it doesn't inconvenience them. It kind of bothers me, even though it really isn't that big of deal. It's made me think about the ways that I put God in a man made box. How my trying to stuff Him into a mold I think He needs to fit in really hurts me. How it effects the way I minister to those around me when I limit the Lord. He isn't a tame lion, but He is good. So, here's a challenge to opening your heart up to discovering who He really is and following where He leads. It's one I'm taking too.

  1. I've been re-reading your sentence and can't seem to quite "get it". Please help my poor confused brain =P

    "I guess it has been a few things that have happened lately where it seems like people want to limit God and drawing closer to one another to fit in their schedule. "

    The last part of the sentence is the confusing part. I agree with you that we shouldn't put God in a box. There are many examples in the Bible where God did the "impossible" and miracles occurred! :)
    My God is able to do anything!

  2. lol, I will have to go back and edit that, since it was two different thoughts there! I was thinking about how people have been wanting to limit God and put Him in a box so that He fits into their tidy schedules or what they think He should be like. And, also that they were limiting how much they fellowship with others at church. I will have to figure out how to write that a bit clearer.;)
