Lazaroo – Monday, January 11, 2010

Jan 11, 2010 I Lazaroo.


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

“So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.”
(Daniel 1:14)

Would I pass such a test, Jesus?

Actually, it’s not “would I,” is it?

It’s “will I?”

Ten days…30 days…six months…a year…

no matter.

Every day is a test.

Will I –

start my day with You?

do what I know to do?
say “No!” to temptation?
choose the good over the bad?
choose the best over the good?

stay in contact moment-by-moment with You?

love the people You’ve put in my life?
pay the prices I need to pay?
focus on what matters?
walk my talk?

finish my day with You?

There’s nothing I can do about yesterday’s test.

Good or bad, it’s over.

Done.
Gone forever.

But this slice of time between now and the moment my eyes close in sleep

is a new, clean, fresh opportunity

a gift from You

to pass the test.

    Aha! Pastor Steve is human,well I mean in the utmost respect,for we all fall short of the glory of God.
    As with Chris this lazaroo is really good,as they all are!
    I am now a lazaroo junkie for I promote lazaroo every time I get the chance.Thank you pastor Steve,you truly have no idea how this web site has helped me grow in Jesus in all kind of ways.

  2. Steve Says:

    Thanks, Chris. You’re right. Today’s Lazaroo IS Daniel 1:14. I appreciate the correction.

  3. Chris Chaudoin Says:

    This was a good one. I’ve never thought of each day as a test. I guess part of that test is dying to myself daily, which is hard to pass as well. Also, the verse should be Daniel 1:14, not Deuteronomy.
