Yawning can be contagious…so stop yawning.
Just recently I took a trip to the local zoo. Many of the animals were rather lazy, restful and calm. They were well fed, well-groomed, and content. For the most part, they weren’t ferocious nor wild. The only animals that were of any character and relentlessness were the monkeys. But the tigers, now the tigers…they could’ve been very ferocious and forceful, but they were not. They barely moved. It seemed like just another exhibit.
Does church feel like that sometimes? Does your walk feel similar most days? Just another day. Just another worship service. Just another habit, routine, ritual. I wonder if we have given ourselves to boredom because we feel as if we can tame God and control Him. It seems as if we are our own God and the God of the bible, is our pet. How contrary to the Word of God are our lives when we live as if God is on our leash.
Many Christian books today are written for the purpose of encouragement, comfort, and rest in God…which is needed and is true. But have we taken too many doses of that aspect of God and become spiritually lethargic? Perhaps so.
This book will not make you feel good and it will not comfort you. But it will challenge you. It will sober you to the truth of the power, capability and awesomeness of God. In doing so, you may awakened from slumber and return to the fact that God doesn’t need you, your approval or your permission.
If this sounds like a challenge…then accept it and read this new book. And like a tiger who is attentive to his territory in which causes the hair on his neck and back to rise…perhaps yours will rise as well as you read these pages.
