Lazaroo – Thursday, December 16, 2010

Dec 16, 2010 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with the humility that comes from obedient wisdom:

“They deride kings and scoff at rulers.”
(Habakkuk 1:10)

Don’t let me do that, Jesus.

May I never become so sure I’m right
so in love with my own opinion
so certain of my superior grasp of the situation

that I speak against the leader of my people.

It’s all too easy to do –

especially when my leader is evil
has an ungodly agenda
isn’t likable
isn’t the person I would have chosen
doesn’t have the characteristics I look for in a leader.

But before I get too carried away with those observations

please remind me who made the brilliant decision to set this leader over me:

You.

All of Your decisions are, in fact –

brilliant.

You know what I don’t know.
You see what I cannot see.

So next time I’m ready to unload on my leader

please help me bite my tongue.
