A lion roared and the tribe answered his call
Last week I was blessed by a story I read. I’m not sure if this was this year or last but I share here with gratitude to God for some of the good news we can share.
The Ethiopian Police were desperately searching for a young girl (abut 12 years old) who had been kidnapped by terrorists. They had little hope for a good outcome but her village folk were all praying.
When they found the child she was in a clearing surrounded by a pride of lions. The dominant male was in a position of protection and gave an acknowledgement when the police arrived as if he understood. He roared and all the others followed him and returned to the jungle.
The child had been beaten but responded well to first aid care. Her testimony is certainly cause for praise.
‘The evil men grabbed me and carried me away. When they threw me on the ground they began to beat me with a stick. I cried and screamed.
Suddenly, a huge golden lion stood on the edge of the forest. He roared, and the men attacking me began to tremble. When he roared a second time and all the rest of his friends burst from the trees, these men ran away in terror.
The lions did not come near me. They formed a circle and appeared to be guarding me. I was not afraid but very peaceful.
May you have a blessed day and rejoice with me that in this world of trouble and hatred and strife there are still stories to share that tell of the Hope of His Coming Kingdom.
