Lazaroo – Saturday, July 23, 2011

Jul 23, 2011 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with dogged expectancy:

“Elkanah went up with all his family to offer the annual sacrifice to the LORD and to fulfill his vow…”
(1 Samuel 1:21)

He showed up, didn’t he, Jesus?

Like always.

Nothing much happened this time – at least, not that he could tell

but he showed up anyway.

His wife chose not to go with him

but he showed up anyway.

You don’t mention whether he was sick or well
but it didn’t matter.

He showed up anyway.

Yes, it was habit

but it was a habit he formed out of rock-solid belief in You.

Well, all right.
Me too.

Here’s my rock-solid belief:

Sooner or later…

no matter what’s going on around me
no matter how bad I feel
no matter who chooses not to go with me
no matter how many times I’ve come back empty-handed

if I show up anyway

so will You.

Numbers 12:7; 1 Samuel 2:35; 2 Samuel 22:26; 1 Kings 3:6; 2 Chronicles 31:18; 2 Chronicles 31:20; Matthew 24:45-46; Matthew 25:21; 1 Corinthians 4:2

What is Lazaroo?
