Can an Ant Swallow a Lion?

Since I found Twitter, I dumped Facebook. I feel I'd be cheating on Twitter when I go to Facebook. (Just kidding, I visit Facebook once in a while) Anyway, that's not the point. This post was inspired by a tweet.

Can an Ant Swallow a Lion


What do you think? Got any reason for your answer?
I was at a point where I doubted everything. I wasn't sure about anything any more. Things didn't seem right. I couldn't put everything together. I was more afraid than confused. Have you ever felt that way?

Few minutes ago, you were so sure about it and the next minute, you can't even find a meaning. It happens. Yes.

You could have started a project, an idea or a relationship that you were so excited and enthusiastic about. It looked so promising. You knew it was just what you needed or prayed about. And all of a sudden, you are asking yourself, "why did I start this in the first place?"


At that moment, we lose the sight of hope. Our heart begin to fear. We begin to wonder whether we heard God right or whether we were only daydreaming. It becomes unclear and uncertain.

It is hard to think clearly at that situation. There are few things I know you can do to bounce back again. It worked for me.
  • Cry it out
  • Get enough sleep
  • Take a walk
  • Just close your eyes
  • Help somebody
  • Pray
  • Praise
I had poured out my heart to God. I slept off in tears. Then I woke up with the question in my heart, "Can an ant swallow a lion?" It is not physically possible for an ant to swallow a lion. But the ant that is anchored on God can. God does great things with little things.

I got a better perspective.


It may not look like it yet but it will be it at the end. There is hope.

The project will be completed. The idea will be established. The relationship will work out. Finally, everything will make sense.

For with God nothing shall be impossible! Luke 1:37


How would you interprete "can an ant eat a lion?" I'd love to hear your views. :)
