Lazaroo – Sunday, September 13, 2009

Sep 13, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with burning emotion:

“This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Turn from your evil ways and your evil practices.’”
(Zechariah 1:4)

That’s pretty straightforward, LORD.

You expect me to change.

Boom.

Just like that.

Immediately.

No hem hawing around.
No procrastination.
No excuses.

Just do it.

The thing is…

I can!

You’ve given me the power to change –

not in my strength –
but in Yours.

Not only do I know it’s the right thing for You and others…

I know it’s what’s best for me.

So why haven’t I up till now?

Habit?

Peer pressure?

Failure to comprehend the spiritual authority You’ve given me over

my own body
my sinful nature
the devil himself?

LORD, forgive me!

I don’t want to live this far beneath my new birthright.

I long to live in the triumphant freedom only You can give!

In Your holy Name, LORD Jesus –

so be it.

    Lord, guide me to surrender! I know that surrender is the key. I know that YOU can do these things and I can’t – without You. Yet, I don’t want to give up my power. Lord, help me see that my power is nothing and only keeps me a step slow in racing to You.

    So right on.. This is my prayer today ~ everyday as the Spirit urges me and I respond ~ IN Him!
