Lazaroo – Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Jan 05, 2010 I Lazaroo.


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

“But the LORD said to me, ‘Do not say, “I am only a child.” You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.’”
(Jeremiah 1:7)

Help me understand this, LORD.

When Solomon told You he was “only a little child,” You were pleased with him.

In fact, Jesus –

You went so far as to say unless I change and become like a little child

I can’t even enter the kingdom of heaven.

But when Jeremiah told you he was only a child

You rebuked him.

Why?

Is it because You demand both from me –

the humility of a little child

who knows that apart from You

I can do nothing?

coupled with the fierce confidence of a warrior

who knows that in Your strength

I can do all things?

Look into my heart, Jesus:

Which of the two

do I most need today?

    GREETINGS; Many times I have gone to the lord with excuses,as is found through out the Word of God from many of His chosen ones.When I look back,I can see where Jesus has worked out a path for me.A lesson in learning to lean on and trust His love and protection for me.

    In today’s turmoil, this Lazaroo, causes one to realy think of what we need to meet the chalanges of the the day, EACH and EVERY day.

    When we seek Him and listen, praise God for knowing and providing exactly what we need every hour of the day, every moment of the hour.

    We don’t always “seek” and “listen”, but that is not HIS failing it is ours. Praise His Name!
