Lazaroo – Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Feb 22, 2011 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with deepening awareness:

“Then Haggai, the LORD’S messenger…
(Haggai 1:13)

O Jesus.

How did it make this man feel to be designated:

“the LORD’S messenger”?

After all, he was just a man –

subject to the same weaknesses any other person faces.

Was he filled with wonder when You gave him a message for Your people?
Did he humbly think to himself –

“Why me?!
I’m no better than my brothers – probably worse!”

Or when You sent him to some high-ranking official
did he sometimes wrestle with pride, as Satan slyly whispered –

“Look at you! That big shot was actually afraid of you!”

Were there other days when he was the one gripped with fear –

knowing the message You had given him would be so hated
that the people might decide to kill the messenger?

But I don’t have to wonder what it was like, do I?

Because I…

am Your messenger.
