Lazaroo – Thursday, January 28, 2010

Jan 27, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with every fiber of your being:

“At once the Spirit sent him out into the desert.”
(Mark 1:12)

I’ve got to admit –

this isn’t exactly what most of us expect, Jesus.

Lots of Christians I know expect the Holy Spirit to lead us out of the desert

not into it.

When things all of a sudden get hot and dry

when our souls are parched
when we’re panting for some of that living water You promised
when we’re staggering through the wasteland of problem after problem

many of us conclude that we must have somehow missed You

and made a wrong turn somewhere along the way.

Seldom does it occur to me to consider the possibility that You Yourself

have led me into the desert.

But why not?

I’m following You, Jesus.

If that’s where the Holy Spirit led You

why wouldn’t that be where He sometimes leads me?

Isaiah 53:1-11; Matthew 5:10-12; Matthew 10:22-25; Matthew 10:34-39; Mark 13:11-13; Mark 15:13-15; Philippians 2:5-8; 1 Thessalonians 3:2-4

What is Lazaroo?
