Lazaroo -Thursday, August 16, 2012

Aug 16, 2012 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with excuseless humility:

“So Moses thought, ‘I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.’”
(Exodus 3:3)

What if he hadn’t, Jesus?

What if Moses hadn’t walked over to that bush?

First, he had to pay enough attention to notice the bush was ablaze

but the leaves remained green.

It’s not all that unusual to see a burning bush.

Somebody fails to put out his campfire…
the wind shifts…

there you go.

I wonder…

how many times
have I glanced at a sign You were performing

and failed to notice the miracle?

O God! Please give me eyes to see

when burning leaves stay green
signaling Your Presence.

But that’s not all.

When something weird like that happens

most people shrink away
give it a wide berth.

I want to be in that small number

who take a risk

and dare to draw close.

1 Kings 19:11-13; 2 Kings 6:17; Psalms 119:18; Proverbs 18:24; Matthew 13:58; Matthew 17:11; Luke 19:43-44; Hebrews 3:19; Hebrews 10:22; James 4:8

What is Lazaroo?
