Lazaroo – Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Jun 02, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with faith-filled triumph:

“We boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.”
(2 Thessalonians 1:4)

That’s who I want to be, Jesus.

Plunge me headlong into Your Word and fill me with that kind of faith!

I want to outlast these persecutions and trials.  

I want to wrestle them to the ground.  

I want to endure everything Satan throws at me until he quits.

I want to be the one left standing with hands raised to the sky, triumphant.

And O God!

May everyone watching me be able to boast loud and long about the perseverance with which You are – in this very moment! – supernaturally sustaining me.

    Today, in this society, our problems aren’t so much being persecuted for our faith, but being persecuted because of the actions and words of others who claim to “represent” Christ.

  3. Ken Ferry Says:

    A popular teaching I’ve heard from a number of sources says that God will supply on an as-needed basis what it takes to stand against persecutions and trials. If this is true, it seems to me that our greatest problem is that we can expect to face little more than an occasional snicker if we should happen to take a real faith stand in our proper, upper middle class, Midwest culture. Little wonder then that we should sense at least a tinge of exclusion when we read scripture passages like this. Perhaps if we challenged our status quo as Jesus and His first disciples did theirs…
