There is a small key that is a short boat ride from Roatan called lil French Key.
This tiny island is guarded by a great reef and is surrounded by the most turquoise of water.
The tiny key is home to a small zoo.
The owners of the zoo have rescued hurt and abused animals from circuses, abusive owners around the world. And have made a sanctuary for them on this beautiful Iskand key where they are loved and greatly cared for.
One of my favorites is a lion named Charlie. Charlie does not know He is a lion. Gentile as a house cat, sweet as a puppy. Before finding his way to the zoo he was declawed, Had just a few teeth left and was so scrawny and full of mange that he barely resembled "a king of the jungle," He was as good as dead!
His whole life has been spent in captivity . He has no idea of the life a wild lion lives. If He were to be set free now, he would parish. He would not be able to defend himself because he was never allowed to be who he was meant to be. He lives a life defined by the size of his cage.
How many of us have out grown our cages and are not living the lives we were born to live? Do you feel trapped like there is a whole world out there and you are missing out? This is what I like to call a holy discontent. Might this be the Holy Spirit prompting you to step out and live your life on purpose for Christ?
Jesus came to set the captives free.
What's keeping you confined from living your best life? What is paralyzing you from stepping outside of the four walls our your comfort zone? Is it a fear of failure or of the unknown? Perhaps it's an overflow of self -disqualification.
The longer we stay in the confinement of the strong holds that hold us back, the more we will become a limited and bound creature of habit. A victim of the status -quo. The enemy comes to steal kill and destroy.
He steals our strength, joy, peace and our future, he destroys our confidence and robs us of the victorious, supernatural life that God's word says we should be living!
Let God take you to it and ultimately through it. Jesus came that we would have power, love and a sound mind.
We are called to be fearless warriors and mighty ambassadors for Christ.
Make a decision today to go back and investigate the secret desire of your heart, that seemingly intangible thing you shelved long ago. Those very things you cast aside as utter impossibilities. Nothing is impossible through Christ who enables, stretches, strengthens, and qualifies. Look fear in the eye, interrogate it, fight the good fight of faith. Your best life awaits!
Be determined to step out in faith today!!
Your victory rests in God alone not your own abilities. He's got you and he will never let the righteous fall!
