Lazaroo – Thursday, September 9, 2010

Sep 09, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in total reliance on God:

“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful…”
(1 Timothy 1:12)

This verse hits me like a blow to the stomach, Jesus.

There may be some people who consider me faithful –

people who don’t know me very well.

But the closer anyone gets to me, the more they become aware of my faults.

How much more is this true of You?

Even my fiercest enemies have no idea how desperate is my daily battle against depravity

and how often I’ve lost that battle.

Oh, they may suspect…

but You know.

So when I read that You considered Paul faithful –

You! –

I’m undone.
I feel like throwing up my hands in total surrender

which is exactly what You want me to do.

I can’t live a consistently holy life in my own strength.

Only –

moment by moment –

in Yours.
