Jesus cradling a lamb
Have you ever heard the phrase “in like a lion, out like a lamb”? It can mean you are talking about the weather patterns, such as when April showers bring May flowers, or when a storm comes in with power and the disappears as quickly as it came.  Or it could mean how God has showed His power in creation- Roaring in like a Lion and going out quietly like a Lamb. There is a song called “The Lion and The Lamb” by Big Daddy Weave that explains how Jesus is both the Lion and The Lamb of our world and of Heaven. The lyrics are as follows:
First Verse: “He’s coming on the clouds, kings and kingdoms will bow down. And every chain will break, as broken hearts declare His praise. Who can stop the Lord Almighty? Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah. He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles. And every knee will bow before Him. Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain. For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains. And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb. Oh, every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb.”
God will come on the clouds. Every knee will eventually bow down before Him. Every chain that was surrounding our hearts, souls, bodies and minds will break, when God appears on the Earth to take us all home to Him in Heaven. He wants broken hearts to declare His praise. No one can stop the Lord in His almighty power. He is constantly helping and fighting our battles with us and for us, because He loves us.   Everyone and everything will bow before Him, because He is truly both the Lion and the Lamb. Jesus is the Lamb that was slain for all of our sins. He died to save every one of us. His blood has already broken the chains of sin and death. Every knee will bow before Him and confess that He is the Lord and ruler of all.
The chorus really gives us a vivid description of who God is- He’s the Lion of Judah and roaring in His almighty power. Yet He is also the Lamb that was slain for every single one of our sins. Out of love, His blood breaks the chains of our sins. We are truly blessed for that.
Second verse: “So open up the gates, make way before the King of kings. Our God who comes to save is here to set the captives free. For who can stop the Lord Almighty? Chorus:  Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah. He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles. And every knee will bow before Him. Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain. For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains. And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb. Oh, every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb.”
God has and does come to save those who believe in Him. We are to make way and open the gates of our hearts and of our lives for Him to do His work in our lives and in the people’s lives around us. No one can stop Him in His almighty power.
Bridge: Who can stop the Lord Almighty? Who can stop the Lord Almighty? Who can stop the Lord Almighty? Who can stop the Lord Almighty? Oh, who can stop the Lord Almighty? Who can stop the Lord Almighty? Oh, who can stop the Lord Almighty? Who can stop the Lord? The bridge speaks for itself but it reminds us again that no one can ever stop what god has planned for any of our lives. If everything is His will, it will happen. He can and does help us through any strife or trial we may be dealing with.
Chorus: Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah. He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles. And every knee will bow before Him. Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain. For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains. And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb. Oh, every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb. And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb. Every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb.”
Prayer: Thank you Lord that your blood breaks the chains of sin, death and the power of the Devil. Thank you for showing us your power, through your Holy Spirit and through everything you do for us in life. May we continue to serve you for all our days. May this song resonate in our hearts and minds and teach many people that you truly are both the Lion and the Lamb of God.
