Lazaroo – Thursday, December 6, 2012

Dec 06, 2012 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with over-the-top trust:

 “From on high he sent fire, sent it down into my bones.”
(Lamentations 1:13)

This wasn’t a good fire, was it, Jesus?

This was a fire of intense suffering

triggered by Your anger

in response to persistent, willful sin.

I’m so thankful that You’re merciful!

slow to anger
quick to forgive.

It takes a lot to rouse You to this kind of fury.

But once I demonstrate to You that I’m no longer trying
once I prove by my thoughts, words and actions

that I just don’t care

I’m asking for it.

You are not a God to mess with.
You are not someone to dismiss lightly.

You will not be disrespected.
You will not be persistently ignored.

If I don’t begin my life with enough fear of You

to stop my sinning

I will certainly discover that I should have feared You

in the end.
