Lazaroo – Saturday, October 17, 2009

Oct 17, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Hold nothing back, as you pray this Lazaroo out loud:

“Then the king became furious and burned with anger.”
(Esther 1:12)

Sooner or later I knew You would confront me about this, Jesus.

My anger.

Even though I usually feel as justified in my anger as that king, who was mad at his wife

The truth is…

I don’t have a right to be angry.

I’ve been in the wrong way too many times

to strike a pose of holier-than-thou indignation.

Besides…more times than I care to admit, I get angry because I’ve

not had enough sleep
failed to get my own way
made some stupid mistake
had my schedule interrupted
been forced to reap a seed I’ve sown
misunderstood what was really going on

been caught doing something I shouldn’t.

Bottom line?

I can’t keep giving into this.
I’ve got to get a grip.

Because I know my anger

does not bring about the righteous life You desire.

Proverbs 16:32; Genesis 4:3-11; Numbers 20:7-12; 1 Kings 21:1-19; 2 Corinthians 12:20; Ephesians 4:26-27; Ephesians 4:31-32; James 1:19-20

What is Lazaroo?

    Greetings, I am still getting 2 lazaroo’s. But maybe we better not stir the soup 4 fear of losing them again.

    Anger has been a snare in my life,more so when I use 2 drink.Now days I try 2 keep up a defense in Jesus 2 stay on top of being snared by satan ‘via’ offenses ect…
