Lazaroo – Friday, October 2, 2009

Oct 02, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with sober vigilance:

“Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion…”
(Galatians 1:7)

Is anybody doing that to me, Jesus?

I know You love clarity.

So do I.

But there is more than one thing going on in my life right now that is definitely confusing me.

I’ve been assuming my confusion is all – or at least mostly – my fault.

But is any of the confusion I feel

the result of somebody else’s input in my life?

The last thing I want to do is blame someone else for something that is my fault.

But today’s Bible passage makes it clear that it has happened to Your people before.

Who am I to think it could never happen to me?

So if this is what is happening –

please show me who is confusing me

and exactly what You want me to do about it.

Isaiah 41:28-29; Galatians 5:7-10; Nehemiah 8:8; John 8:42-45; 1 Corinthians 14:6-12; 2 Corinthians 11:6; Philippians 3:15-16; 2 Timothy 2:23-26; 2 Timothy 3:1-9; Matthew 18:15-17; Titus 3:9-11

What is Lazaroo?

    Just wanted to report that I failed to get my Lazaroo for Saturday and sunday. Is it over or is something wrong? I miss it very much. Thanks, JA

    Confusion . . . it is part of the human equation. I have learned that keeping the focus on God provides the needed clarity. I know that sounds cliche’, however, too many of us THINK we are focusing on God when we are really focusing on human beings that are presumably speaking for God. If we remind ourselves that these leaders are also frail human beings, it not only helps get the focus back on God, but also allows us to cut our Christian leaders some slack when their fallibility is exposed.
