Lazaroo – Monday, July 23, 2012

Jul 23, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with a healthy fear of God:

“Therefore the Lord, the LORD Almighty, the Mighty One of Israel, declares: ‘Ah, I will get relief from my foes and avenge myself on my enemies.’”
(Isaiah 1:24)

I need to be reminded that this, too

is who You are, Jesus.

We love to talk about Your mercy, love and forgiveness –

and for good reason!

All of that is real and for that I am deeply grateful.

But You have another side.

You’re the creator of both heaven

…and hell.

You are amazingly patient with us

but there’s a line we can cross

to the enemy side.

I don’t ever want to become Your enemy, LORD!

Since I tend to mirror the people I’m with
I’ve got to be certain my friends

are Your friends

and Your enemies

are mine.

I’d do well to remember:

It just makes good sense not to stand

where Your fist must come down.
