A man once boasted about how he cut off a lion’s tail with a pocket knife. His amazed friend asked “Why didn’t you just go ahead and cut off his head as well?” He replied, “Oh someone else had already done that.”
The Bible compares the Devil to a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. One way he devours is through devouring our time by scaring people away from doing God’s best.
Maybe there is someone God has put on your heart recently to speak to about their soul. But you’ve procrastinated on it and convinced yourself you just don’t have enough time right now, when the real reason you haven’t acted is fear.
Remember, Jesus has already cut off the lion’s head. Satan is a defeated enemy. So go ahead; get your little pocket knife and do whatever you need to do to experience God’s best for your life, be fully effective for Him, and to redeem the time
