If you want to have a firm attitude, you have to study the person of a Lion and Eagle. God, in the Bible, identifies himself to have the character and attitude of two animals. 1st He identifies himself as an Eagle, and 2nd He identifies himself as Lion. Both of the animals are the undisputed Kings of their domains. Eagle is Domineering, strong-willed, independent, vocal, competitive, and shrewd. Eagle represents a symbol of inspiration, release from bondage, victory, longevity, speed, father, and royalty. A Lion is King, majesty, hypnotic, sharp, powerful, brave, majesty, strength, courage, justice, and military might. But, God in his majesty is much, much more than all of this. But, if he (God) uses the character of a lion to describe himself, then we have to study the Lion.
Remember that God created you to be an authority on earth, not over people, but to become a LEADER in your area of life and expertise. You need to have the mentality of a Lion. Lion is not the smartest, or the biggest, or the strongest. But, he has the strongest attitude of all the animals in the kingdom. An elephant is 10x bigger and stronger and smarter than Lion, a monkey is smarter than a lion. But, when Lion sees an elephant he thinks only one thing, “lunch“. Lion kills all your excuses in life. If you have any problem in your life, don’t worry or be afraid. But think of it as “lunch“, where you can grow and get stronger. The bigger the problem, the bigger your attitude is and stronger. Please don’t confuse attitude with arrogance. Now other side of the coin, sheeps are the dumbest animals on the planet, they would follow anything and anyone, and if you didn’t notice they never have a pack leader. But remember this ” A pack of sheep led by a Lion would defeat a pack of lions led by a sheep “. A leader like a lion can transform weak people into courageous warriors, while a weak state of mind like sheep, can bring down a warrior’s will, courage and put doubt in him. So be a Lion, head straight forward to your problem to your goals, know that you have this in your control by the grace of God. Lift somebody else up, help people around you, guide them and protect them, that is a true leader. And do not think for one second that you achieve everything by yourself. I’ll tell you right now, you didn’t. Always be humble and in every moment give thanks to our Lord the Christ.
