Lazaroo – Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Feb 09, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with bottomless trust:

“…if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.”
(2 Corinthians 1:6)

This is a huge concept for me to get hold of, Jesus –

that whatever You do for me
doesn’t stop with me.

That everything You bring into my life –

whether I call it good or bad…pain or pleasure –
has more than one purpose.

It boggles my mind to realize that Your actions in my life not only impact me

but countless people around me

and through their lives
impact the world.

No wonder I’m never quite sure how to pray about the seemingly simple things in my life.

They’re not simple at all.

This world is like a giant Rubik’s Cube.

Every prayer You answer

changes everything.

It’s not just about me, is it?

Not ever.

What is Lazaroo?

    Awesome, Pastor Steve. I shared this one with several of my friends. It really makes you think.
    I try to tell/correct myself as often as I can on certain occasions that, “It is not about me”, but this really put it into perspective as to what God is about.

    Thank you

    “The world is like a giant Rubik’s cube. Every prayer You answer changes everything.” Nobody can understand or fathom God’s economy. I’ve never heard nor seen it put so well.

    Glad to see this one. This is why I always pray that God will remind me of the mantra: “It isn’t about me!” Not that I don’t believe that God cares about me as an individual, but that He is the only one that can see the big picture. Whether experiences are joyous or painful, there is a blessing in knowing that He is using me in His master plan. What an honor!
