Lazaroo – Thursday, June 14, 2012

Jun 14, 2012 I Lazaroo.


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

“After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant…”
(Luke 1:24)

As good a man as Zechariah was, Jesus…

he didn’t believe the angel You sent to him.

The words he heard seemed like nonsense.
They defied everything he had learned in his long life.

Since he failed to trust Your power to do the impossible, You took away his power of speech.

He disbelieved Your words
and lost his own

giving him time to think.

Which makes me think:

Is there anything I’ve read in the Bible

that seemed too good to be true?
too awful to be fair?
too strange to have actually happened?

What has my disbelief done to me?

Oh, maybe I haven’t instantly become a mute.

But when I sowed the seed of doubt in Your words

have I reaped people’s doubt in mine?

That’s frighteningly close to being unable to speak, isn’t it?

Joshua 21:45; Joshua 23:14-16; Judges 13:8-12; 1 Samuel 10:6-7; 1 Kings 8:14-16; Matthew 13:34-35; Luke 1:11-20; James 2:21-23; Revelation 17:17

What is Lazaroo?
