Lazaroo – Friday, April 29, 2011

Apr 29, 2011 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in grateful humility:

“Then Haggai, the LORD’S messenger, gave this message of the LORD to the people…”
(Haggai 1:13)

What a holy, exhilarating, terrifying thing that is, Jesus –

to relay a message from You to Your people.

What an honor to be chosen by You for such a task!

But on the heels of that honor…

comes raw fear.

What if I misunderstand Your message?

What if I understand it well enough…but fail to deliver it

accurately
clearly
completely
convincingly
fearlessly
compellingly
compassionately?

What if I get all that right, but fail to deliver it

to the right people?

Or what if I deliver it too soon – before they’re ready to receive it

or just as bad – too late for them to act?

What if they ask me follow-up questions I can’t answer?

I’ve messed up in all those ways, haven’t I?

But it’s not my perfection that changes lives.

It’s You.
