Lazaroo – Friday, June 26, 2009

Jun 26, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with absolute transparency:

“To those who have been called…”
(Jude 1:1)

I believe with all my heart that You’ve called me, Jesus!

Help my unbelief.

On the one hand, I’m confident I wouldn’t be doing what I am right now – praying like this to You – if You hadn’t called me.

On the other hand, every time I get a glimpse of my despicable, detestable, self-centered depravity, I can’t imagine…

…why You would have anything to do with me.

But You do.

You specialize in people like me.

No.

It’s better than that.

You specialize in me.

With Your own hands You lovingly formed me in my mother’s womb.

You’ve hovered over me every single day of my life.

You’ve rescued me time and again and brought me to this very moment.

For this very moment.

I hear Your call.

Loudly and clearly.

Well, here I am.

Let’s go.

    Thanks again Steve, for keeping the love of our Father in front of us.
    There are many times when I feel called to step up and participate or lead, and many of those times I don’t get out of the blocks because I feel so unworthy. I am unworthy.
    I am also loved. Loved by God.
    Because I have that love, I have hope, strength and motivation to answer the call.

    Let’s hope that this one stops us from comparing ourselves with others. We ALL are undeserving and fall short of His glory.

    I was just praying that God would use me and then I read this! I know that God loves to use human hands to do His work and He is using yours right now. Praise the Lord!!!
