In the jungle the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight. Wimoweh wimoweh wimoweh wimoweh!! Well in this case the cub sleeps tonight. Mufasa is the king of the jungle, the king of pride rock. All who are under his reign worry not about where the food comes from because he keeps the balance. The king of Pride rock chases away the hyenas so they don’t eat everything and upset the circle of life.
The king makes all things work. He keeps the herbivores in plenty so they can eat the grass, the carnivores eat the herbivores and when the carnivores die they become the grass. All things are interconnected.
This is kind of like our relationship with God. God is Mufasa and we are pride rock, he takes care of our circle of life. You can only imagine Timon and Pumba don’t worry about where they are going to get grub for the day. The king keeps the world in check and things going. Timon and Pumba wake up to a land that is well kept all they need to do is go look for the food and play their part in the circle of life.
So who is in control? The king of the jungle of course. It is when we understand that there is a higher being who is willing to keep the balance that we can enjoy being pride rock. With nothing to worry about, we can go about our business and let the king of the jungle do his part. We can be the cub that sleeps in the jungle tonight and every night knowing that there is a king who has it down, he has it under control. Or we can be Timon or Pumba.
When Simba stands on the edge of pride rock looking into the land, he knows that everything that the light touches belongs to the king. In the dark shadowy parts is the outlands that the hyenas stay. Simba isn’t worried if the hyenas come and try to take their herds or eat their food because the king will keep them in check. He will come and roar and they will tremble and know they aren’t meant to eat more than their share.
All was going well till Mufasa died and Simba ran away. The land wasted away because the Scar took over and let the Hyenas roam free to destroy everything, Scar didn’t understand the circle of life. The animals ran way and the pride rock wasn’t something to be proud of anymore. The Hyenas ate all the meat till there was nothing left and no one had anything left to eat. Scar even though he was a lion like Mufasa wasn’t the right king for the job. Scar didn’t understand the importance of the Circle of life
So the question is, Who is the ruler of your pride rock?
