So we went to watch the new Lion King this weekend! 🦁 Seriously my favorite Disney movie! And I just wanted to share some thoughts and reflections I had during the movie!
While I was watching, I saw so many moments that reminded me of our relationship with god. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When simba disobeys his father and goes into the forbidden land, which almost resulted in his death, his father came to his rescue and saved him! He gave him another chance! Just like our father loves us and even when we disobey him and sin, he still loves us enough to save us when we cry out to him! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then again when Simba almost dies in a stampede, his father rushes to the rescue even if it meant sacrificing himself!!
Now when Simba was already an adult, he was doubting himself, blaming himself, and forgot who he really was, a child of a king! The monkey stepped in and reminded him who he is, who’s SON he is, what he means and even though his father is not here with him on earth, he is always within him! And it just really hit me how the enemy often lies to us that we’re nothing. That we don’t deserve our fathers love. That we can’t be forgiven. But that’s not true because although we can’t see god, his Holy Spirit lives within us! He is always with us, we just have to listen to HIS truth and not the enemies. And that’s why it’s so important to read the word and get reminded daily of who you ARE and what price was paid for you! This way you will not yield to the enemies lies because you know your worth.💎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hope everyone has a fantastic week and remember how much you are worth to our father ❤️
