Lazaroo – Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Apr 27, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud to God, with deepening humility:

“Now, LORD God…you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth. Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?”
(2 Chronicles 1:9-10)

I can identify with Solomon, Jesus –

not because You’ve made me king over Your people…

but because my responsibilities
demand more wisdom and knowledge than I possess.

You work with me

through me
sometimes in spite of me!

in such subtle ways

that sometimes I forget it’s You
and start believing it’s

my wisdom
my strength
my experience

for the briefest moment…

You withdraw Your hand and allow me to discover
how helpless I truly am when left to my own devices.

I never want to make that foolish mistake again!

Holy Spirit, please remind me…

it’s You.
