Lazaroo – Monday, September 14, 2009

Sep 14, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with fervid faith:

“Edom may say, “Though we have been crushed, we will rebuild the ruins.”
(Malachi 1:4)

But the people of Edom were wrong, weren’t they, LORD?

Unless You build the house

the builders are just wasting their time.

Unless You watch over a city, state or nation

not even the most powerful army on earth can protect it.

No matter how hard I try I can’t

eat healthy foods
make good money
graduate from school
have a great marriage
build strong friendships
get in top physical shape
maintain a positive attitude

enjoy a successful life in any way, shape or form

unless You make it happen.

That’s an affront to my pride.

It keeps me from being able to stand up tall and boast that I am

self-made.

It forces me –

if I am honest –

to humble myself

to bow my head and admit

only You.

    I’ve recently started working out (about 6 weeks or so) and been feeling pretty good about myself. This prayer was a good reminder that every part of my life even being in top physical shape (yes I’ve got a long way to go, it’s only been 6 weeks) is in God’s control. Thanks for keeping me humble.

    The paradox between yesterday’s and today’s Lazaroo is what keeps me on my knees. I am responsible to act on the truth I have been given. Yet, in the final analysis, it was really God and God alone.

    I needed this Lazaroo today. Thank you.

  4. John Tevault Says:

    We must humble our selves! I can see the working of God in my life.It has always been there, I just was not humble enough to see it. God my Lord and saviour allowed me to see the light. Nothing happens without reason and without GOD!

    Only you!!
    Amen
