Lazaroo – Thursday, October 29, 2009

Oct 29, 2009 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with pure devotion:

“Why should you be beaten anymore? Why do you persist in rebellion?”
(Isaiah 1:5)

This is one reason I suffer, Jesus.

Too much of the time I want my own way so badly that the only time I pray

is to ask Your blessing on what I’ve already decided.

I know.

Prescription for disaster.

You’re not about to tag along while one of your headstrong, ignorant children takes the lead!

But that’s not the only reason I suffer, is it?

Sometimes I suffer for the same reason You did when You walked this earth.

You were a man of sorrows, deeply acquainted with grief. You were

hated
beaten
cursed
rejected
mocked
crucified
whipped
opposed 
despised

because You were right.

because You wouldn’t compromise, back off or back down.

Either way, I’m going to take my lumps.

It is the cry of my heart

to take them with You.

  2. Jeff Says:

    In order to get the blessings of suffering, we must first to divorce the self. All other suffering is for Him.

    Greetings; I have had my share of beatings, being a x inmate, I have encountered many situations of my own doing.Suffered for my own ignorances. I have encountered issues where I have suffered for Jesus as well.Being a converted Christian with in the walls of a prison or local jail, teasing and name calling go’s on. 1 Peter 4:12-16 really lays it out.In hind sight,I wish that all my sufferings were due to my position in Jesus. The reality of it isn’t so.
