We are the lion tamed.

Isa 65:17  For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 

Imagine, if you will, brothers and sisters, a new heaven and a new earth. Behold all things are new. The old things are remembered no more. A new heavenly Jerusalem from above descends and takes its place in this new world that the Lord has promised. We, the saints, are citizens in training. We shall pass on from this world to the next and and we shall be glad and rejoice. The voice of weeping shall no longer be heard. Before we even ask, the Lord will answer us. He shall be ever before us and there will be no hunger or thirst for He, the Lord Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of all things. We know now, in part. We prophesy in part. Yet in the fulfillment of all things that which has been in part shall be done away with.

Then, brothers and sisters, we shall know as we are known. To walk in the fullness of the knowledge of God is to stand with Him face to face. Faith will be made whole and hope shall be fulfilled and we shall dwell forever in the magnificent love of God. We were made new so that we would be able to walk in this world. Every trial, every tribulation, every beat of our broken hearts has a purpose. We are being prepared. This world is our training ground. Do not wonder that you suffer so much dear saint, only know that God is the one preparing you for a world that is so beyond our imaginations that it has not even entered into our minds. Not a single tear you have ever shed has been wasted. When you have been hated for His namesake and loved nevertheless, this is Kingdom training. When you have been despised for following hard after the Lord, this is Kingdom training.

Seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness is the actions of one from another world, a world that was and is and is to come. Trusting in the Lord that He will meet your needs is the actions of citizens of the new world. I will admit that it is hard to walk through a world that you do not belong to. Your heart knows that you do not belong here but the reality of this world that presses upon your five senses is hard to ignore. Train yourself to see the Kingdom reality here and now and walk in it. You are in fact walking in the Kingdom now. The difficulty is that it is so far removed from this world that it seems utterly beyond our ability to truly grasp, yet it is all around us. It is a world that we cannot see but is more real than the one that we can see. The spiritual reality of God is far beyond our physical sight. Yet in this true reality the savagery of this world is tamed in us. The lion indeed lies down with the Lamb. We are the lion tamed.
