Lazaroo – Thursday, October 27, 2011

Oct 27, 2011 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with mounting excitement:

“Get yourself ready!”
(Jeremiah 1:17)

I love the sound of that, Jesus.

It tells me You’ve got a plan.

I’m not on some random journey at the mercy of chance and happenstance.

I’ve got a clear goal

an assignment
a purpose
a destination

I’m going somewhere.

It tells me You and I are about to do something significant together

not just any old thing
not something I can just wing

but something that requires me to stand tall

to gather myself
to be at my best.

And it tells me something else, too:

It’s near.

It’s like that moment at the start of a 100-meter dash when the runners hear:

“On your mark…”


Yeah, but it scares me, too.

This isn’t all on You.

You’ve just told me to get myself ready.

I’m no spectator.

I’ve got work to do.
